Lorrie Morgan's first live musical experience was singing "Paper Roses" on the Grand Ole Opry stage when she was barely thirteen years old. She received a standing ovation; Morgan would continue to sing all her life. In 1979 she had some success with a rendition of "I'm Completely Satisfied," a song by her late father, George Morgan. Her vocal harmonies were added in a fashion similar to what Natalie Cole did in 1991 with her father's hit "Unforgettable." The late 1980s found Morgan maturing musically and reaching critical acclaim as well as yielding chart topping hits such as "Five Minutes," from the 1989 gold album, Leave The Light On. Her elastic vocal textures seem to reveal a classic country training that could only come from endless hours listening to and singing along with her father's record collection. With respect for the past and a passion for musical innovation, Morgan's music is tuneful and timeless.

Joy to the World: Live at Soundstage
Runtime: 53 minWorking with producers Dann Huff and Byron Gallimore, engineer Allen Sides and Grammy-winning arranger David Campbell, Faith Hill has crafted a one-of-a-kind Christmas record with Joy to the World, freshly conceived yet anchored in tradition. It is a loving tribute to both the spirit and the music of Christmas, one that pays homage to the classics.
Recorded over a two-year period, the album features reworked classics along with the only original song on the track and her single, "A Baby Changes Everything." The arrangements are diverse. From the big band orchestration of songs like "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town, "Winter Wonderland" and "Holly Jolly Christmas," to the a cappella "The Little Drummer Boy" and the Appalachian feel of "Away In A Manger." The CD opens with "Joy To The World," and, says Hill, "From the very first note you hear, I wanted it to be joyous. I wanted to give you (the listener) the impression of what the song meant before a word was ever uttered."
Over the course of the past two years Faith has spent much of her time on the road. 2006’s Soul2Soul II Tour and Soul2Soul Tour 2007, which she did with
her husband Tim McGraw, was and still is the highest grossing country tour of all
time. It was selected as Pollstar Magazine’s "Major Tour of 2006" over industry powerhouses Madonna and the Rolling Stones. With the wrap up of the tour in 2007, they have the highest grossing multi-year North American tour in country music history.
That tour became one of the many highlights of a career that includes five Grammy Awards and countless other awards, the sale of more than 30 million albums, and hit singles including "Wild One," "It Matters To Me," "This Kiss," "Breathe," "The Way You Love Me" "Cry" and "Mississippi Girl." And perhaps most impressive of all the accomplishments, Faith Hill is the only female artist to celebrate three consecutive album debuts atop both Billboard’s Top 200 Album Chart and Country Chart. With a voice that is soulful and powerful, there is simply no question that Faith is one of the music industry’s top vocalists.
As one of this generation’s most credible and visible talents, Faith Hill has based her career on dedication, passion and commitment.
