Lorrie Morgan Set to Release Compilation Greatest Hits Album

lorrie morgan

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).

“Letting Go… Slow is all new music about where I am right now and what all I’ve been through and was forced to learn about all along this crazy journey called life, and A Picture Of Me – Greatest Hits & More is a representation of how far I’ve come,” Morgan said. “This compilation album is, truly, a picture of me – my biggest hits and those songs that have hit me the hardest or inspired me the most over the years. I am very proud of them both.”

Featuring newly re-recorded versions of her top hits “Watch Me,” “Something In Red,” “Good As I Was To You,” “Five Minutes,” “Except For Monday, “ A Picture Of Me (Without You),” “What Part Of No,” and brand-new songs like Dottie West’s “Here Comes My Baby,” A Picture Of Me – Greatest Hits & More also features never-before-heard songs from Morgan like “I Went Crazy For Awhile” and “Hopelessly Yours,” written and co-written by Keith Whitley. Morgan also includes beautiful renditions of Tammy Wynette’s “’Til I Can Make It On My Own,” and George Jones’s “Loving You Could Never Be Better.”

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.

After decades in country music cranking out hit after hit in sassy and memorable songs like “Five Minutes,” “Except For Monday,” “What Part Of No,” “Something In Red,” and “Watch Me,” Morgan remains a modern-day pioneer, making country music history by remaining true to herself with every piece of music she records.

“I didn’t want this to be just another album. I wanted it to be something that really moved me. When I listened to songs for it, I’d think, ‘No, not that one. I’m not going to be able to sing that one, because I’m not going to be able to feel it.’ It was very important to me for this album to reflect the things that I am feeling today,” she said.

“Where I am in my life right now, I’m not afraid to express what I feel, or what I don’t feel,” Morgan added about the emotive new project. “I’m not afraid to express my views on anything, especially on being a woman.”

Why did it take her five years? “I wanted the songs to be right – I couldn’t handle one more song about a truck (laughter),” she told WSIG-FM in Harrisonburg, Va. “I got my head together and told myself I was just going to record the songs that I wanted to, and now I can confidently say – ‘here they are.’ I’m very proud of this project and I’m even more excited to have something new to play out on the road.”

Tune in this weekend at various times on Saturday Jan. 16 and Sunday, Jan. 17 when Morgan joins country genre-favorite Tracy Lawrence in the studio on his national weekend country radio show, “Honky Tonkin’ With Tracy Lawrence,” to talk about the new project. Check your local listings here.
