I am grateful for the opportunity to return for a second time to perform at Opryland during the holiday season,” states Ms. Morgan.  “The resort is filled with fascination, especially this time of year, and my hope is to bring the spirit of love, hope and romance to life through music once again.”

Red River Entertainment recording artists, Grits & Glamour (Pam Tillis and Lorrie Morgan), the royal women of country, celebrate the revealing and poignant sophomoric single release “I Am A Woman” from their critically acclaimed collaborative album entitled Dos Divas.

Co-written by Grits & Glamour band member, and close personal friend, Mary Sue England alongside hit writer Thom Shephard, “I Am A Woman” is a true-to-life heart song that paints the perfect picture of the “every day woman” as an anthem of strength, endurance and resilience for women of all ages and all walks of life.

I’M A WARM HEART WITH COLD FEET
I’M A MONA LISA SMILE / AND THE TEARS YOU’LL NEVER SEE
I’M A PROMISE AND I’M A PRAYER

I AM FAITH / I AM HOPE / I’M THIS PINK RIBBON THAT I WEAR
AND I AM BRAVE / NO MATTER WHAT YOU TAKE AWAY
I AM A WOMAN

In early celebration, and in sporting style, the Tennessee Titans welcomed Grits & Glamour to perform “I Am A Woman” in recognition of breast cancer awareness month (on Sunday, October 6, 2013//Titans vs. the Chiefs) where the Titans cheerleaders invited cancer survivors onto the football field during the pregame presentation. Continuing their mutual initiative to share their heartfelt support of women who have become tragically touched by the unforgiving hands of breast cancer, the Opry stars will perform at the 5th Annual Opry Goes Pink Show as The Grand Ole Opry® joins Women Rock For The Cure™ in the fight against breast cancer on Tuesday evening, October 22. In the company of LeAnn Rimes, Amy Grant, Mandisa (who is making her Opry debut) and others, Morgan and Tillis will appear before the signature barn backdrop which will be spotlighted pink for the night in recognition of survivors and fighters of cancer.

“We have no words to express our personal honor and privilege to be included in this event—to step onto the historic Opry stage on such an important occasion to perform such a powerful song—empowering women (daughters, mothers and grandmothers),” says Pam Tillis. “When we heard ‘I Am A Woman’ for the first time, Pam and I knew it had to be on our new album; it’s one of those songs that captures life moments and the unspoken sentiment and emotions shared by every female—simple or complex. We are pleased to be part of this extraordinary affair, to speak on behalf of others who cannot and add volume to those who can,” adds Lorrie Morgan.

Road warriors who exude compelling strength and determination, Pam and Lorrie continue to support the momentum of their debut Grits & Glamour album Dos Divas as part of their Grits & Glamour Tour canvassing the country from east to west and are committed to carry on their own independent breast cancer awareness campaign in conjunction with the new single release.

In a special, deserving and long-awaited family gathering, Lorrie Morgan and her children, Jesse Keith Whitley and Morgan Whitley, accepted the Cliffie Stone Pioneer Award in recognition of the late Keith Whitley for his contributions to the history and future of country music as part of the Academy of Country Music’s Seventh Annual ACM Honors on Tuesday evening, September 10th. Concluding the honors and awards event held at the historic Ryman Auditorium (Nashville, TN), Lorrie and son, Jesse Keith, performed their heartfelt rendition of “Til A Tear Becomes A Rose” to which the performance met with overwhelming and embracing applause. (The song was originally recorded by Keith Whitley as a duet with Lorrie and posthumously released in 1990; it was the only single from Whitley’s Greatest Hits album. The single peaked at No. 13 on the country singles charts.)
