We are so excited about this year’s show. It will be a magical night that will entertain young and old alike while helping an extremely worthy cause.”

“We appreciate the tremendous support we continue to receive from Nashville’s entertainment community,” said Rev. Glenn Cranfield, president and CEO of Nashville Rescue Mission. “This event is a wonderful opportunity for the community to enjoy an impressive night of musical entertainment, while also giving help and hope to the homeless. Each day the Mission serves over 2,000 meals to hungry and homeless men, women, and children. And while helping the homeless might start with a meal at the Mission, we offer that and so much more. We are grateful for our donors, volunteers, and everyone who plays a role in helping us meet the needs of those we serve. We could not do this without you.”

Jim Gray will conduct the award-winning Nashville Symphony. This event is also made possible through the generosity of sponsors and performers. Missy & Rick Baker are this year’s Presenting Sponsor.

Good things come in pairs, and this season legendary country music songstress Lorrie Morgan celebrates two new album releases, back-to-back. Following the February 12th release of her first new studio album in five years, Letting Go… Slow, Morgan will celebrate the juxtaposed March 18th drop of a brand new compilation album, A Picture Of Me – Greatest Hits & More (available now to preorder).

Days after the release of her first solo album in five years, multiple Female Vocalist of the Year Award winner Lorrie Morgan opens up about the stories behind Letting Go… Slow, including “Strange,” which can be viewed exclusively on CountryWeekly.com, and “Spilt Milk” which premiered exclusively on The Boot.com. The country songstress speaks of her emotional connection to each song, giving fans an inside perspective of the creative process behind the highly anticipated album.

“Every song on this album are songs that I have lived,” states Morgan in the exclusive content. Perhaps her most personal work to date, the album consists largely of the signature ballads Morgan has been known for throughout her storied career.

“Where I am in my life right now, I’m not afraid to express what I feel, or what I don’t feel,” Lorrie said, evident in her emotional recount of the effect each song had on her for many years.

Letting Go… Slow is in stores now and available for download on iTunes, Amazon and at lorrie.com.

Lorrie Morgan “Vandalizes” Merch at Nashville Visitor Center

Lorrie Morgan

“If you think I won’t, just watch me,” are words coined by country songstress Lorrie Morgan in her Number One platinum-selling smash hit “Watch Me” (1992), and twenty-four years later, she’s still saying them.

While visiting the Nashville Visitor Center inside of the Bridgestone Arena prior to an interview on SiriusXM’s Prime Country, Morgan spotted a hot pink Project 615 t-shirt hanging on the racks with all of her long-time musical heroes listed on the front: Patsy, Loretta, Reba, Emmylou and Dolly.

So what did she do?

She grabbed a Sharpie and penned “Lorrie” right at the bottom.

“I probably shouldn’t have ‘vandalized’ the shirt like that,” Morgan said of the incident shortly after. “I just couldn’t help it. There it was dangling in front of me saying ‘don’t do it, don’t do it,’ so what did I do? I had to do it!”

“Patsy, Loretta, Reba, Emmylou and Dolly are country icons, and some of my biggest musical heroes. They’ve paved the way for so many females in the country genre, including me, and I’m very proud and honored to get to call them ‘friends,’” she said.

The daughter of country music legend George Morgan, Lorrie remains one of the youngest performers ever to grace the Grand Ole Opry stage, making her first and everlasting impression on the country music world with her father at the age of 13. She is also the first female country vocalist in history to achieve three consecutive RIAA-Certified Platinum albums: Leave The Light On (1989), Something In Red (1991) and Watch Me (1992).

Opening up to the world about some of her most personal trials and tribulations on what’s being pegged as her ‘most revealing album to-date,’ Letting Go… Slow, Morgan will appear on SiriusXM’s Prime Country this weekend as an in-studio guest on “The Charlie Monk Show,” airing Saturday, January 23 from 6 to 8 p.m. ET.

On SiriusXM’s Prime Country, channel 58, Morgan joins long-time music industry veteran, Charlie Monk, dubbed ‘The Mayor Of Music Row,’ to talk about her over 40-year career, her life’s biggest challenges including the loss of her father, and husband country legend Keith Whitley, as well as what kind of new music fans can expect to hear on her first solo album project in five years, Letting Go… Slow.

Morgan’s career accolades include multiple CMA/TNN/CMT Awards, three platinum-selling albums, one double platinum-selling album, fourteen top hits and four Female Vocalist Of The Year awards and thirteen recorded albums. Her top-charting include “Except For Monday,” “Something In Red,” “Five Minutes,” “What Part Of No,” “Good As I Was To You,” “I Didn’t Know My Own Strength,” “Watch Me,” “Dear Me,” “’Til A Tear Becomes A Rose (with Keith Whitley),” among others.

Letting Go… Slow is in stores February 12, and AVAILABLE NOW for pre-order. The album is released by Shanachie Entertainment.
