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: Long wait ends for Kitty, Daisy & Lewis – When you don't show for almost six years - Kitty, Daisy & Lewis are guilty as charged - and barely release any music unless counting one excellent disc out in late March on a British label and something almost unheard in the states in 2011, don't expect the masses to show up either. Predictably, that didn't happen for the family band... »»»
Concert Review: Mellencamp overcomes conundrum – John Mellencamp faces the predicament that artists of his stature must face as they age. Now 63 and still putting out new, quality albums, Mellencamp presumably wants to push his new highly relevant music, while the faithful, long-time supporters thrive on the old stuff. How do you rectify the two? Mellencamp tended to have it both ways before a... »»»

Giddens takes her turn A great deal has transpired in the 10 years between Rhiannon Giddens, Dom Flemons and Justin Robinson connecting at North Carolina's Black Banjo Gathering and the release of Giddens' brilliant debut solo album, "Tomorrow is My Turn." Giddens and Flemons formed the very successful Sankofa Springs. Robinson met and was mentored by black string band legend Joe Thompson, and ultimately, Giddens, Flemons and Robinson formed the bluegrass/folk/blues powerhouse, the Carolina Chocolate Drops. ... »»»
The perfect world of Ray Wylie Hubbard A couple of years ago, while discussing various musical poet-heroes, singer-songwriter Hayes Carll mused that "in a perfect world, Ray Wylie Hubbard would be winning Grammys." With the release of his latest offering, "The Ruffian's Misfortune," a follow-up to 2012's critically acclaimed, "The Grifter's Hymnal," now might just be the time that Carll was talking about.... »»»
Nathan Stanley carries on family tradition Young bluegrass artist Nathan Stanley doesn't fall far from the branches of the family tree; he honors the legacy of his grandfather, Dr. Ralph Stanley, by delivering straight ahead traditional bluegrass music, interpreting old classics that have shaped him and his music. At the same time, young Stanley is an original, refusing to sing the old songs in the ways they've been performed before. "If it's been done," he says, "I don't think I'll do it that way."... »»»
Second Hand Heart CD review - Second Hand Heart
Dwight Yoakam appears to be a many of mystery on the cover. With two side-by-side images of himself, the Kentucky honky tonker dons a trademark cowboy hat, jeans jacket and jacket and plucking his electric, legs spread and head pointed down. But there really is no mystery about Yoakam, who has been making music longer than some of the contemporary country acts have been alive. »»»
Love Somebody CD review - Love Somebody
It's been five years since her last album - 2010's "All the Women That I Am" - but the Queen of Country Music's crown hasn't lost its luster. On her 27th album, Oklahoma native McEntire adds another jewel to her tiara with her new album that covers familiar territory: strong women, the heartbreak of breakup, the determination of a broken lover starting over and the destructive and healing power of love. »»»
