Country star Lorrie Morgan comes to the Arena Theatre as part of the launch of "Letting Go...Slow," her first new solo album in five years. One of the most eloquently emotive country vocalists of modern times, she spent a lifetime becoming an overnight sensation. The road to her explosion on the scene as the first woman in country music with three consecutive Platinum albums began with her birth in Nashville as the daughter of Country Music Hall of Fame member George Morgan, and being given the iconic name, Loretta Lynn Morgan. She made her debut on the Grand Ole Opry stage at age 13.The new album is a collection that showcases a rainbow of emotions, from darkest heartache to bright, shiny humor. "Where I am in my life right now, I'm not afraid to express what I feel, or what I don't feel. I'm not afraid to express my views on anything, especially on being a woman. I have been a daughter, a bride, a mother, a divorcee, a widow, a single mother, a breadwinner and, ultimately, a survivor. In many ways, I am a living, breathing country song, and I know what I sing."Morgan has long been praised for her lustrous vocal phrasing and the down-to-earth believability of her torchy performances. Her first three albums, Leave the Light On (1989), Something in Red (1991) and Watch Me (1992), all earned Platinum Record awards. Her Greatest Hits collection (1999) is also Platinum. War Paint (1994), Greater Need (1996) and Shakin’ Things Up (1997) are all Gold Record winners.
