May 9, 2024

Title Cut Available Now from Forthcoming Album (Cleopatra Records, 6.28.24)

One of Nashville’s most enduring stars, country music luminary Lorrie Morgan, weathers the storm to offer a personal and powerful new studio albumNASHVILLE, Tenn. – Grammy-nominated, CMA Award-winning Grand Ole Opry member Lorrie Morgan is back – delivering her first new studio effort in seven years – with ‘Dead Girl Walking’ (Cleopatra Records). The album, a testament to Morgan’s resilience and dedication, is now available for pre-save and physical pre-order. It will be released on June 28, 2024, and the title track is available now everywhere music is found.
 
Dead Girl Walking is sure to be yet another collection showcasing the rainbow of emotions, from darkest heartache to brightest humor, that is the hallmark of Morgan’s range.
 
“This album is very special to me,” shares Morgan. “Sadly, it turned out to be the final producing credit by my longtime friend and collaborator, Richard Landis, who passed just before its completion. Dead Girl Walking ties together a career journey from the top 10 album, ‘War Paint,’ that Richard produced to this new album. Richard also co-wrote the Billboard-charting single “If You Come Back From Heaven.” Also in 1994, Landis was one of 14 producers to receive a CMA Album of the Year award for ‘Common Thread: The Songs of the Eagles,’ and produced me on the last track on the album, my cover of “The Sad Cafe.” Richard’s brilliant, creative touch is all over this new album, and I’m eager to share every song. I miss my friend and honor him with this collection.”
 
Morgan turned tragedy into triumph, completing the project and fulfilling Landis’ vision for the album.
 
“Where I am in my life right now, I’m not afraid to express what I feel,” Morgan continues. “I’m not afraid to express my views on anything, especially on being a woman and my experiences in this business and in life.”
 
“I didn’t want to just do another album. I want it to be something that really moves me. When I listened to songs for the project, I’d think, ‘No, not that one. I’m not going to be able to sing that one because I’m not going to be able to feel it.’ It is very important to me that this album reflects the truths that I am feeling today.”

She is undeniably one of the most eloquently emotive vocalists of modern times. Lorrie Morgan, the first woman in her genre to begin her career with three consecutive Platinum albums, recently completed a new album with award-winning producer Richard Landis. Dead Girl Walking (Cleopatra Records) is sure to be yet another collection showcasing the rainbow of emotions, from darkest heartache to bright, shiny humor, that is the hallmark of Morgan’s range. The album is set for release on June 28, 2024.

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 certified Gold.

She sang “The Sad Cafe” on ‘Common Threads: Songs of the Eagles,’ which was named the CMA Album of the Year in 1994. Country fans voted Lorrie Morgan their TNN/Music City News Female Vocalist of the Year four times.

Lorrie Morgan maintained her recording pace in the new millennium, releasing collections in 2002, 2004, 2009, and 2010. In 2012 and 2013, Morgan starred and sparkled in the lavish ‘Enchanted Christmas’ productions at the opulent Opryland Resort in Nashville and later took that show on the road.
