This will be Morgan’s first appearance at the historic and intimate Capitol Theatre. Joining her is Jesse Keith Whitley, her son with the late great Keith Whitley.
Morgan began her career with a record-setting bang, releasing three consecutive platinum albums beginning with 1989’s “Leave the Light On” followed by “Something in Red,” then “Watch Me,” which celebrates its 25 anniversary this year.
“Watch Me,” released in 1992, peaked at No. 15 on the Billboard country albums chart, and included the singles “Watch Me,” charting at No. 2; “What Part of No,” a No. 1 hit; “I Guess You Had to Be There,” which peaked at No. 14; and “Half Enough,” which hit No. 8 on the charts.
Also included on this album is a cover of “It's a Heartache,” a pop standard previously recorded by Bonnie Tyler and Juice Newton.
Morgan became the first female in the history of country music to achieve three platinum albums in a row. In that short time, she became not just a country superstar but a household name, thanks to such blockbuster radio-friendly singles as “Five Minutes,” “Something in Red” and “A Picture Of Me (Without You).”
Throughout her career, Morgan has sold more than 8 million records including 14 Top 10 hits. She has recorded a dozen albums and earned four Female Vocalist of the Year awards. She made history of her own when she became a lifetime member of the Grand Ole Opry at the age of 24 – one of the youngest performers to ever become a member.
Morgan released “Letting Go … Slow,” her first new solo album in five years, in 2016. It is a collection that showcases a rainbow of emotions, from darkest heartache to bright, shiny humor.
