Lorrie Morgan, the first woman in her genre to begin her career with three consecutive Platinum albums, re-emerges on Shanachie Entertainment with “Letting Go….Slow”. It is a collection that showcases a rainbow of emotions, from darkest heartache to bright, shiny humor.
“Where I am in my life right now, I’m not afraid to express what I feel, or what I don’t feel,” she comments about the collection’s varied moods. “I’m not afraid to express my views on anything, especially on being a woman.
“I have been a daughter, a bride, a mother, a divorcee, a widow, a single mother, a breadwinner, and, ultimately, a survivor. In many ways, I am a living, breathing country song, and I know what I sing.
“I didn’t want this to be just another album. I wanted it to be something that really moved me. When I listened to songs for it, I’d think, ‘No, not that one. I’m not going to be able to sing that one, because I’m not going to be able to feel it.’ It was very important to me for this album to reflect the things that I am feeling today.”
I remember my dad watching Lorrie Morgan on the Nashville Network when it was new, she was always on the Ralph Emory Show. With over a dozen albums and 5 decades in Country Music, she has such an amazing story to tell, and Crossties is a great place for you to hear it.
