Although she spent most of her life singing, Lorrie didn't become a star until the early '90s, when she scored a string of Top 10 country hits. Born Loretta Lynn Morgan in 1959, she is the youngest daughter of George Morgan, one of country's great stars of the '40s and '50s. Lorrie made her professional debut at age 13 on the Opry, where her rendition of Paper Roses received a standing ovation. When her father died in 1975, she took over his band and began leading the group through various club gigs.
In 1979 she scored her first major successes with Two People In Love and Tell, Me I'm Only Dreaming, and charted I'm Completely Satisfied With You, a duet recording made earlier with her late father.
In 1988, Lorrie had a Top 20 hit with Trainwreck of Emotion, but it was Dear Me that finally established her as a major star. In 1990, she achieved her first #1 with Five Minutes and from that point onwards, she registered a regular stream of hit recordings that includes A Til A Tear Becomes A Rose (a duet made with Keith Whitley), Except For Monday, and Picture Of Me Without You. In 1992, she followed with What Part Of Me and Watch Me both reaching #1.
Her second album, "Something In Red" was released in 1991. It went platinum and spawned the number one single, What Part of No. In 1993, she gained a Top 10 hit with Half Enough and a minor replacement for her version of Crying Time, which came from the movie The Beverly Hillbillies. Lorrie returned in 1999 with "My Heart" and in the spring of 2001, she released Maybe Not Tonight, a duet featuring Sammy Kershaw.
