Lorrie Morgan Celebrates 25 Year Anniversary of ‘Watch Me’

Announces 2017 Tour Dates with Pam Tillis, Joe Diffie, Mark Chesnutt & Jesse Keith Whitley

Lorrie Morgan is one of the best-selling female artists in country music history, who 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 #15 on the Billboard country albums chart, and includes the singles “Watch Me” (#2) “What Part of No” (#1), “I Guess You Had to Be There” (#14), and “Half Enough” (#8).

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).”

About Lorrie Morgan
Sultry country songstress Lorrie Morgan has sold over eight million records including fourteen top ten hits, twelve recorded albums and four Female Vocalist of the Year awards. She was the first female artist to ever have three consecutive albums RIAA-Certified Platinum®. She made her mark with what have now become timeless country standards, “Five Minutes,” “Except For Monday,” “Something In Red,” “Watch Me” and “What Part Of No,” and established her place as a country star—a modern woman making country music history. Loretta Lynn Morgan was born to make music. At 13, she made her first and everlasting impression on the country music world when she played at The Grand Ole Opry, making her one of the youngest to have made her debut at the Mother Church of Country Music. Three short years later after her dad, country music star George Morgan’s passing, Lorrie launched her own career touring with her father’s band. 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 to ever become a member.
