Biography

Loretta Lynn “Lorrie” Morgan (born on June 27, 1959 in Nashville, Tennessee) is an American country music singer.


The daughter of singer George Morgan, she made her first appearance on the Grand Ole Opry at age thirteen, performing Marie Osmond’s “Paper Roses.” Her father died when she was sixteen.

When her father died in 1975, she took over his band and began leading the group through various club gigs. Within a few years she disbanded the group, and in 1977 she went on to play with the Little Roy Wiggins band. She then became a receptionist and demo singer at Acuff-Rose, where she also wrote songs.

In 1978, she had one minor hit single; the following year another minor hit with “I’m Completely Satisfied”, an electronically dubbed duet with her late father. She began touring Nashville nightclubs and opened for a number of acts, including Jack Greene, Billy Thunderkloud, and Jeannie Seely. She toured as a duet partner with George Jones and spent two years as part of the Opryland USA bluegrass show and as a regular singer on TNN’s Nashville Now.

In 1983, TNN was launched as the first cable network devoted to country music. Morgan was a regular on the show Nashville Now, singing towards the end of each show.

In 1984, Morgan scored a minor hit with “Don’t Go Changing”. That year she became the youngest singer ever to join the Grand Ole Opry.

In 1988, Morgan was signed with RCA Records, her first major label.

In 1989, Morgan’s first album Leave the Light On was released; “Trainwreck of Emotion” became her first Top 20 hit, followed by her first major hit with “Dear Me”.

In 1990, Morgan had her first number one single, “Five Minutes”. That song was also featured in her album Leave the Light On, which went gold.
