Lorrie Morgan is releasing a greatest hits album. “A Picture of Me: Greatest Hits & More” comes out on March 18th. It’ll include newly recorded versions of her most popular songs, such as “Watch Me,” “Something in Red,” “Five Minutes” and “Except for Monday.” The album will also include two new songs. “I Went Crazy for Awhile” was written by Morgan’s late husband, Keith Whitley, while “Hopelessly Yours” was co-written by him.
Having lived a life of great loss and triumph, Morgan has been quoted saying, “In many ways, my life has been a country song.” In an article published by People Magazine Morgan revealed that although a lot of good things have happened to her, the tragedies have been overwhelming. Devastated by the loss of her father, country star George Morgan when she was just 16; and then the unexpected death of her husband and fellow country star Keith Whitley when she was in her late twenties, Morgan’s first years of career success were far from painless.
Her song “Dear Me” became her first Top 10 hit shortly after Whitley’s death, followed by “Out Of Your Shoes,” and “Five Minutes,” which both skyrocketed to No. 1. “Here I am,” she told People Magazine, “In this tragedy, and I had something I had wanted for so long, a hit record. And as much as I thank God, I say, ‘thanks, but please – make it a little easier.’” Through the years, Morgan has credited her audiences for being her therapists and helping her make it through those hard times through music.
Now, nearly two decades later, a wife, a mother, a grandmother, legendary country star and four-time Female Vocalist Of The Year, she says she is happier than ever, and two new music projects on the horizon are just icing on the cake.
The album is produced by Matt Legge.
