Lorrie Morgan files for bankruptcy

Tuesday, October 28, 2008 – Lorrie Morgan filed for bankruptcy last week in federal court. The singer filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, listing estimated liabilities at between $1 million and $10 million and assets of $500,000 to $1 million.

Morgan, 49, said the bankruptcy was "an unfortunate yet necessary part of the restructuring of my business."

"It's very important to me that my fans and business associates understand that I'm OK," she said. "Today's economic times have affected many American families and businesses. I, along with many of you, am not immune to this fact. I would appreciate the courtesy of my friends and fans respecting my privacy regarding this matter."

Creditors included the Internal Revenue Service, banks and lawyers.

This is the second time Morgan filed for bankruptcy. In 1992, she repaid creditors in full and withdrew a Chapter 11bankruptcy petition, listing more than $846,000 in debts.

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 »»»
