Lorrie Morgan – real name Loretta Lynn Morgan is an iconic American country music singer who is also the mother of Morgan Anatasia Gaddis, another famous American singer. Lorrie began her career in the music industry in 19898 when she signed a deal with RCA Records Nashville. Since then She has released many great songs and her journey has inspired many young artists, including her own daughter.
In this article, I want to talk more about Lorrie Morgan. About her career, personal life, and achievements. She has been a shining star in my life, and I want to share her talent and contributions to the world through this article.
Lorrie Morgan’s Musical Career
First and foremost, I want to talk about her phenomenal musical career. Her talent actually goes all the way to her parent, George Morgan who was a country music singer. George Morgan was a famous country music singer back in the ’60s. He has released 13 albums and more than 25 singles during his entire career. His proof of achievement is being a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame.
Perhaps due to the influence of her father, Lorrie Morgan learned and loved country music. She was only 13 when she made her first performance on the Grand Ole Opry, a place where his father used to be a member of. In fact, it was her father who brought her there.
After Lorrie signed a deal with RCA Records Nashville in 1988, she has been unstoppable since then. Her best single is probably the “Trainwreck of Emotion”, which managed to top the US country top chart.
You can find Lorrie’s songs on the Billboard, I count there are more than forty songs there, including “Five Minutes,” “What Part of No,” and “I Didn’t Know My Own Strength.”. I personally love these songs; I still listen to them all the time whenever I have time.
Her last solo album is titled “Letting Go…Slow,” which was released in 2016. She also released a duets album with Tillis titled “Come See Me and Come Lonely” only 1 year later. To this day, Lorrie Morgan is still on tour and performing regularly on the Grand Ole Opry.
Lorrie Morgan’s Personal Life
Compared to most artists, Lorrie’s personal life has always been quite hectic and full of drama. Lorrie even stated during her appearance on Larry King Live that drama is something that keeps her going, something that tells her that she’s still alive. When I heard her saying that, I thought she was just being dramatic, but after learning more about her personal life, I think she was telling the truth.
Lorrie married her first husband, Ron Gaddis, in 1979. Ron was part of George Jones’ road band. But the marriage only lasted two years before they get divorced. From the marriage, they had a daughter named Morgan Anastasia Gaddis.
Lorrie married her second husband, Keith Whitley, who was also a country singer. Unfortunately, due to alcohol poisoning, Keith died in 1989. From the marriage, they had one son named Jesse Keith Whitley. She then married to a former bus drive for Clint back, Brad Thompson, in 1991. Again, the marriage only lasted two years.
Three years later, Lorrie married again to her fourth husband, Jon Randall, in 1996, and you guessed it, he is also a country singer. Her marriage was attacked by the allegation of her being in the back of a limousine with Bill Clinton, which she has denied. That was probably the reason why they decided to get a divorce in 1999.
Lorrie married her fifth husband, Sammy Kershaw, in 2001. The marriage lasted six years before she filed for a divorce due to irreconcilable differences in 2007. She married her now sixth husband Randy White in 2010.
Lorrie Morgan’s Net Worth
It’s difficult to know exactly how much her net worth is. Lorrie is a successful singer for sure, I mean her records were sold more than 6 million copies worldwide. But she also filed chapter 7 bankruptcy in 2008, with debts between $1 to 10 million. She blamed her bankruptcy on her negligence and accountants.
That being said, it is estimated that her net worth is around $6 million. This estimation is reported by various reliable sources. For more information you can visit her official website.
