Lorrie Morgan At Grand Ole Opry
Grand Ole Opry member Lorrie Morgan was born in June of 1958, the daughter of country singer George Morgan. She made her debut appearance on the Grand Ole Opry when she was just thirteen years old with her performance of the song “Paper Roses.” After her father’s death when she was sixteen, she took over his band until 1977, when she joined the Little Roy Wiggins band. Also in the late 70s, she became the featured vocalist on Nashville’s WSM-TV on a show hosted by Ralph Emery. By 1984, she scored her first minor hit and, the same year, became the youngest singer ever to join the Grand Ole Opry ranks.
