The Door Community Auditorium
Presents
Lorrie Morgan in Concert

Lorrie Morgan literally grew up in music. The daughter of Grand Ole Opry star George Morgan, she made her musical debut at age 13 and has continued to earn top honors for her authenticity as a country artist ever since. The Door Community Auditorium welcomes Lorrie Morgan to its stage for a concert on Friday, October 3rd at 8 pm. Performing some of her all-time hits including “Something in Red,” “Dear Me,” and “Out of Your Shoes,” Morgan shares her life story through her music.
Watching her father perform, Morgan showed little interest in pursing a singing career in country music. It wasn’t until her father persuaded her to take the stage that the teenager found her life’s calling. The response to her debut performance of Marie Osmond’s “Paper Roses,” however, changed the course of her life. “I knew what I would be doing the rest of my life,” Morgan recalled. The teenager toured with her father until his death in 1975. Following his passing she carried on the family’s musical legacy touring with his band before going solo a few short years later.
In the early years of her career Morgan performed as the opening act for George Jones, and regularly performed with the Grand Ole Opry. Charting her first single in 1979, the country artist was granted membership into the Opry, the most coveted establishment in music, five years later.
Morgan’s career took wing with her 1989 release “Dear Me,” which became a Top-10 hit. Singles “Five Minutes” and “What Part of No” were followed by In the course of the next ten years Morgan released three #1 singles: “Five Minutes,” “What Part of No,” and “I Didn’t Know My Own Strength.” Her platinum debut album “Leave the Light On” (1989) was followed by “Something in Red” (1991) and “Watch Me” (1992), both of which also earned platinum status.
The Country Music Association (CMA) has nominated Morgan for numerous awards including Female Vocalist of the Year, the Horizon Award, Top Vocalist of the Year, and Female Artist of the Year. Her recording “’Til a Tear Becomes a Rose” was nominated for Single of the Year in 1991. Morgan was awarded Vocal Event of the Year honors in 1990, and “Common Thread” was named 1994 Album of the Year.
Additional awards include the Country Music Television (CMT) 1992 Female Vocalist of the Year; TNN/Music City New Awards 1991 and 1997 Vocal Collaboration of the Year; and 1994, 1996 – 98 Female Artist of the Year.
Morgan has continued to demonstrate versatility in her career choices. She has appeared on major television programs and made her acting debut in the television movie “Proudheart” for which she received a Cable Ace Award nomination.
“Show Me How,” Morgan’s 12th album released in 2004, is a collection of 11 songs that examine life from the perspective of “lessons learned and wisdom earned. I wanted it to be parallel to my life,” Morgan said of the album. “I didn’t want to record anything that I couldn’t relate to, that I haven’t lived or haven’t experienced and everything we found, I think, was very mature sounding, livable, very seasoned songs.”
