Lorrie Morgan is a treasure

90’s country was alive and well this past Saturday night at the Casino Regina Show Lounge as Lorrie Morgan and her band performed for 90 minutes in front of a sold out venue. Lorrie Morgan’s music has stood the test of time because the show brought out people of all ages. People who were barely 30 up those in their 80’s were singing along with the hits like “Except for Monday,” “Five Minutes,” and “Something in Red.” She also did a touching tribute to her late husband Keith Whitley by singing a medley of “When You Say Nothing at all,” and “Don’t Close Your Eyes.”

In addition to singing, she included several stories from throughout her career, including how she and Pam Tillis became friends and decided to go on tour together and how one fan thought she was actually dead! Thankfully Lorrie Morgan is alive and well with a voice that has not changed one bit since the 1990’s.

Morgan’s music career started at very young age thanks to her father, George Morgan, a country music star in his own right. She was a mere 13 years old when she joined her father on the Grand Ole Opry stage to sing “Paper Roses,” which would kick off life in music for her. In fact, she was a member of the Grand Ole Opry before she even released her first solo record – joining in June of 1984. She released her debut album “Leave the Light on” in 1989 and it yielded the number one song “Five Minutes” for Morgan. It also contained three other top 10 hits, “Dear Me,” “Out of Your Shoes,” and “He Talks to me.” Morgan would gather several more top 10 hits over her career and hit the top of chart a total of three times. She also holds the prestigious honour of being the first female in country music to have her career start with three consecutive platinum albums, plus she’s got a new project on the way later this year, titled “Dead Girl Walking.”

Morgan is now headed back to the United States for a series of shows this weekend starting in Akron, Ohio on Friday before travelling to Hopewell, VA for two shows.
