Morgan drops more music

Tuesday, March 1, 2016 – Fresh off her first release in five years, Lorrie Morgan announced today she would release a greatest hits plus effort this month.

"A Picture Of Me - Greatest Hits & More" is out March 18 on Goldenlane Records, a division of Cleopatra Records. The label has recently released new albums by the Oak Ridge Boys, Collin Raye, Little Texas and TG Sheppard, amongst others.

Morgan released "Letting Go... Slow" on Shanachie Entertainment on Feb. 12.

"Letting Go... Slow" is all new music about where I am right now and what all I've been through and was forced to learn about all along this crazy journey called life, and "A Picture Of Me - Greatest Hits & More" is a representation of how far I've come," Morgan said. "This compilation album is, truly, a picture of me - my biggest hits and those songs that have hit me the hardest or inspired me the most over the years. I am very proud of them both."

Featuring newly re-recorded versions of her top hits "Watch Me," "Something In Red," "Good As I Was To You," "Five Minutes," "Except For Monday, " A Picture Of Me (Without You)," "What Part Of No," and brand-new songs like Dottie West's "Here Comes My Baby," "A Picture Of Me - Greatest Hits & More" also features unreleased songs from Morgan like "I Went Crazy For Awhile" and "Hopelessly Yours," written and co-written by her late husband Keith Whitley. Morgan also includes renditions of Tammy Wynette's "'Til I Can Make It On My Own," and George Jones' "Loving You Could Never Be Better."

The album is produced by Matt Legge.

1.) "Watch Me"
2.) "Something In Red"

William Michael Morgan
Did anyone bother to tell William Michael Morgan that he's seriously out of style? Who sports cowboy hats any more as the Vicksburg, Miss. native does on the cover of his debut? They were pretty much discarded (remember when hat acts got a tremendous amount of grief as poseurs?) years ago in favor of the baseball hats favored by the likes of Luke Bryan. Not surprisingly, Morgan has far more in common with the likes of George Strait (he still wears his cowboy headgear) than today's country popmeisters. »»»
Letting Go...Slow CD review - Letting Go...Slow
During her lengthy career Loretta Lynn Morgan has had a lot of hits, though lately she has been in the news more for cutting cake (married six times at press time) than for cutting records. "Letting Go . . . Slow" is her first solo album since 2010's pop-oriented "I Walk Alone" (about which the less said the better), and she seems to be trying to make a country comeback, going mostly with covers on this record. Speaking of covers, for some reason Morgan has gone with a »»»
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. »»»
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. »»»
