Lorrie Morgan to Release New Album, ‘Letting Go … Slow’
Lorrie Morgan will be releasing her first solo album in five years, Letting Go … Slow, in early 2016.
The album will feature 12 tracks, ranging from upbeat and sassy to pensive and heartbreaking. Among the songs are covers of “I’ve Done Enough Dying Today” originally performed by Larry Gatlin and the Gatlin Brothers, Bob Dylan‘s “Lay Lady Lay,” Patsy Cline‘s “Strange” and Vern Gosdin’s “Is It Raining at Your House.”
“I have been a daughter, a bride, a mother, a divorcee, a widow, a single mother, a grandmother, a breadwinner and, ultimately, a survivor,” says Morgan (quote via Rolling Stone). “It seems, in many ways, I am a living, breathing country song, and I know what I sing.”
Letting Go … Slow was produced by Richard Landis (Vince Gill, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band) and is scheduled to drop on Feb. 12 on Shanachie Entertainment. The album follows Morgan’s collaboration album with Pam Tillis, Dos Divas, which was released in 2013.
Morgan has been a Grand Ole Opry member for more than 30 years and was one of the biggest country stars of the 1990s. Her biggest hits include “I Didn’t Know My Own Strength,” “I Guess You Had to Be There,” “Something In Red” and others.
