Lorrie Morgan is an American country music singer.

Born Loretta Lynn Morgan on June 27, 1959, Lorrie Morgan grew up the daughter of Grand Ole Opry star George Morgan. She spent many nights backstage at the Opry and made her debut there at 13. Her father died when she was 16, and she was singing professionally a year later. By 21, she was opening shows for George Jones. She performed at Opryland USA, sang demo sessions for country publishing giant Acuff-Rose and became a member of the Opry in 1985.

Although Morgan charted her first single, "Two People in Love", in 1979, her career took off with the 1989 release of "Dear Me", a Top 10 hit that coincided with the death of her husband Keith Whitley. Over the following decade, Morgan released three No. 1 singles - "Five Minutes," "What Part of No" and "I Didn't Know My Own Strength." Her other hits include "Out of Your Shoes," "Watch Me," "Something in Red" and "Except for Monday."

Morgan was married to singer-songwriter Jon Randall from 1996-99, and they charted the hit duet By My Side. Although Morgan exited BNA Records in 2000, she returned to the company's sister label RCA in 2001 with I Finally Found Someone, an album of duets with Sammy Kershaw. She and Kershaw married later that year, and they own and operate a hot chicken restaurant on the outskirts of Nashville.

Morgan's 12th album, Show Me How, was released in early 2003 on the Image Entertainment label.
