SATURDAY FAIR FEATURE IS LORRIE MORGAN
The featured Country Music Star taking the stage at 9 P.M. Saturday, August
9th at the 60th annual Washington County Fair will be a female star who says
her life is like a country song she’s experienced so many different roles -
none other than Lorrie Morgan according to Fair Board President Randy
Fryman, who recently announced the Fair Music Concert featured Stars.
For Lorrie Morgan, everything finally fits. In life and in art, the
glamorous and gifted country stunner has a new record label, a renewed
alliance with a mega-hit producer, a great husband and home life,
confidence, contentment, and a spectacular new album.
“Everything fits,” she says, “If there could be any theme, it would just be
that everything fits.”
Morgan’s authenticity as a country artist is irrefutable. She was literally
a child of Grand Ole Opry, tagging along as her father, the late George
Morgan, performed every weekend from the hallowed wooden stage. Lorrie made
her debut appearance at 13, knock-kneed and shaking as her Dad watched her
charm the audience with the developing sultry alto which has become one of
the most distinctive and moving voices in the country genre.
All of those people speak clearly on Show Me How. “It’s everything into
one. It’s everything I am,” she says. “It’s sentimental, humorous,
sensitive, romantic, everything I am, this album is about.”
See and hear Lorrie Morgan in Concert at the 60th annual Washington County
Fair starting at 9 P.M. Saturday, August 9th.
