Lorrie Morgan, one of the leading ladies in country music history, and her friends, have stepped forward to organize a benefit concert for long time industry veteran, friend and comrade in music, Ms. Debbie Ballentine.
With the loving support and strength from family and friends, Ballentine has been bravely fighting her battle with cancer since Fall 2011. After completing various treatments and courses of radiation therapy, results have not been optimum; there is no cure for Ballentine’s condition. The family’s medical bills incurred during her illness are insurmountable.
Lorrie Morgan, Vince Gill, Pam Tillis, Jesse Keith Whitley, Ashlee Hewitt, TG Sheppard, Kelly Lang and Baillie and The Boys will donate their time and talents to support Ballentine at the I AM A WOMAN benefit concert in her honor. The charity event will be held at Silver Dollar Saloon (110 2nd Avenue North, Nashville, TN) on Wednesday, February 18, 2015 at 6:00 p.m. Tickets are $30 per person; a limited quantity of PRE-SALE TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE NOW! [VISIT: http://silverdollarsaloon.com/event.cfm?id=191432&cart.] Tickets may also be purchased day-of-show beginning at 5 p.m. Doors open at 5:30 p.m.
TV personality and Great American Country’s Top 20 Country Countdown’s Nan Kelley will host. More award-winning acts are being added daily (to be announced at a later date).
“This event is special for me; this lady is special to me. She’s been my lifeline for so many years; she knows me like no other,” said Lorrie Morgan. “There is nothing that is fair or good about this horrible disease. It’s so difficult to even think about what she has been going through…while we all must continue on with own lives. Debbie is in our hearts, our thoughts and our prayers as she lives day-to-day fighting this silent killer.”
Autographed artist photos and VIP show laminates will be available for purchase at the show. All proceeds from ticket and collectible item sales will be dedicated to support Debbie to assist in alleviating her financial burden while she fights to overcome her poor health. Individuals unable to attend can offer support by visiting her GoFundMe link: www.gofundme.com/iwfwic.
Lorrie Morgan will ring in the holidays with an 11-show Christmas tour to launch on December 3rd in Niagara Falls, New York and end in Nashville, TN at the City Winery. The Lorrie Morgan Enchanted Christmas Show will feature Lorrie singing her hits along with holiday classics.
“To be able to bring the wonderful music of Christmas to audiences around the country is a dream come true,” says Lorrie Morgan. “This is my favorite time of year. I get to think about my children growing up and reminisce my life with my family. I wish all year could be Christmas time!”
As a platinum selling country artist, selling over 10 million albums with eight #1 videos, known for hits such as “Something Red”, “Leave the Light On”, and her chart topping country Christmas album, “Merry Christmas From London”, Lorrie continues to be a major artist—both in concert and on record—and tickets for her Christmas tour dates are moving towards a sell-out for the holiday run.

Lorrie Morgan, four-time Female Vocalist of the Year, has added more concert dates to her ever-growing schedule. Most recently celebrating her 30th anniversary as a Grand Ole Opry member, Lorrie and fellow Opry member Pam Tillis continue touring together on the “Grits and Glamour Tour”.
Morgan’s vocal style, combining country sincerity and pop sophistication, really took off in 1989 with the emotion-filled hit “Dear Me.” She won a CMA Award in 1990 for her work with her late husband, Keith Whitley, the great country traditionalist who had died the year before. Her three subsequent albums — Leave the Light On, Something in Red, and Watch Me — all sold more than a million copies, respectively.
Morgan’s has released 30 Billboard singles, – “I Guess You Had to Be There,” “What Part of No,” “Except for Monday,” “Something in Red,” “I Didn’t Know My Own Strength,” “Half Enough,” – three propelling to the top of the music charts and fourteen hitting the Top 10. In addition, Morgan has received seven Gold album awards, four Platinum album awards, and one multi-Platinum album award.
