Lorrie Morgan marries for the sixth time

Wednesday, November 3, 2010 – Lorrie Morgan apparently is a big believer in marriage. The singer married Randy White on Sept. 15, The Boot reported. This is the sixth marriage for Morgan, who has been married to three different country singers.

Morgan's first husband, Ron Gaddis, was a musician in George Jones' band. They were married in 1979 and divorced 2 years later. In 1986, Morgan married Keith Whitley. He died in 1989 of alcohol poisoning. Morgan then wed Brad Thompson, a bus driver for Clint Black, from 1991 to 1993. Later marriages were to singer/songwriter Jon Randall from 1996 to 1999 and Sammy Kershaw, who married in 2001 but divorced 6 years later.

Show Me How
Lorrie Morgan's career may have enjoyed a higher profile, but that shouldn't be because of albums like this. The sexy blonde generally hits the mark. What sets Morgan apart and always has is her singing ability. She got strong pipes time and again and uses them to good effect throughout. That's particularly true on the uptempo numbers such as the lead off "Do You Still Wanna Buy Me That Drink (Frank)" where she plays a strong twice-divorced woman with two teens to raise and meets a man in a bar. »»»
The Color of Roses
Lorrie Morgan always has benefitted from a strong voice that could be alternately vulnerable or upbeat with the requisite emotion plus a slew of good songs to help her voice put them over. But on this 19-song live set, featuring mainly a bunch of her hits and some generally well chosen hits, both Morgan and band sound remarkably inert. This is quite a surprise because in concert, Morgan possesses a lot of vocal energy and dynamism. In fact, there isn't a whole lot of difference between what is »»»
Greatest Hits Collection
Lorrie Morgan's association with RCA is now over with the swan song being this "greatest hits" plus disc. There are the catchy songs like "We Both Walk, " "Half Enough"and "Something in Red" along with five new songs. Morgan always has possessed a strong set of chords, turning in readings with a good deal of emotion tossed in without being overwrought. Sometimes the singing is almost too perfect, sacrificing intensity in the process. What has not served Morgan as well is the failure at times to »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Corb Lund finally returns – To say that a Corb Lund show was a rarity in these parts would be an understatement, but with a new disc, "Things That Can't Be Undone," dropping in two days, the Canadian roots/country artist is on the road - south of the border. Lund lives on a farm in southern Alberta, Canada, near the Montana border, and has achieved popularity in his homeland.... »»»
Concert Review: Time makes a difference for Striking Matches – What a difference four months makes. When the duo Striking Matches debuted in Boston in late May, Sarah Zimmerman and Justin Davis capably showed off their skills, but somehow it felt like a lot of songs fell just a bit short. Davis and Zimmerman tended to cut a lot of songs abruptly, never letting them breath enough or fleshing them out.... »»»

No matter what you say, it's The Deslondes In the spirit of hard-hitting journalism, it seemed logical to ask Deslondes vocalist/guitarist Riley Downing the Mike-Wallace-from-60-Minutes question that has to be on everyone's mind: How the hell do you say the New Orleans-based band's name? "It's pronounced 'dez lawn,'" says Downing. "I know there's different ways that people have pronounced it over the course of history...... »»»
Watkins Family make time From their first, self-titled, major label release, the Allison Krauss-produced, "Nickel Creek," two-thirds of that trio - musical siblings Sara and Sean Watkins - have been in the musical spotlight continually since 1999.

Milk Carton Kids find themselves on "Monterey" Joey Ryan, half of acoustic folk duo the Milk Carton Kids, is girding his loins for the long trip from the band's Los Angeles home base to Australia. Although he's made this trip before, he's yet to acclimate completely to it.... »»»
Things That Can't Be Undone CD review - Things That Can't Be Undone
While it is perhaps unfair to put too much focus on the producer of an album, the current weight of having a production credit from Dave Cobb (Jason Isbell, Jamey Johnson) is certain to garner notice from fans of high quality songwriters. Canadian artist Corb Lund decided to work with Cobb on his latest release, and the results are eye opening. »»»
Runaway Train CD review - Runaway Train
To those with even only a passing familiarity with the history of bluegrass, the name of this young band from Florida is an obvious tribute to the pioneers of the music as exemplified in the person of the late, great Lester Flatt. Perhaps more than any other genre of American music, though, bluegrass has lent itself to acts for whom the music is the "family business." »»»
South Broadway Athletic Club CD review - South Broadway Athletic Club
It's been over two decades since The Bottle Rockets vaulted into the wider consciousness with 1994's "The Brooklyn Side," typified by the heartbreaking Appalachian roots folk swing of "Welfare Music" and the scorching Crazy Horse pop of "Gravity Fails." Since then, frontman/primary songwriter Brian Henneman hasn't been afraid to mix things up or to take a break when necessary. »»»
