Lorrie Morgan to headline 2014 Railroad Festival
Country singer Lorrie Morgan will be the headline performer Saturday, Apr. 12, at 8 p.m., at the 31st Louisiana Railroad Days Festival. She has 14 top ten hits, including the number-one singles “Five Minutes”, “What Part Of No”, and “I Didn’t Know My Own Strength”. She was also named Female Vocalist of the Year four times by the TNN Music City News Awards.
She has over 12 recorded albums, three of them platinum. Some of the artists she has sung with include George Jones, The Beach Boys, Frank Sinatra, Johnny Mathis, Pam Tillis, and Andy Williams
Morgan debuted at the Grand Ole Opry at the age of 13 and became a lifetime member of the Opry at 25 - the youngest member ever. She has sung all around the world, but she is not just a singer. She’s also a songwriter, and producer.
Morgan says, “I have been a daughter, a bride, a mother, a divorcee, a widow, a single mother, a grandmother, a breadwinner, and ultimately, a survivor. It seems, in many ways, that I am a living, breathing country song and I know what I sing. My music and songwriting has a healing power for me personally, and these days, that’s what I aspire to be, a compelling and captivating music poet!”
