Lorrie Morgan was barely a teenager when she made her first major appearance in 1975 singing “Paper Roses” with her dad, country star George Morgan on the Grand Ole Opry. Since that fateful night, Lorrie has never looked back. Her whirlwind life and career has engrained in her a confident sense of self that shines through on her latest recordings like the late afternoon sun glows through the stained-glass windows of the Ryman Auditorium.
When her father passed away in 1975 Lorrie didn’t miss a beat in carrying on his legacy. She took to the road with her dad’s band and toured the country, keeping his memory alive and winning countless fans along the way. The music industry soon recognized that Lorrie’s star was on the rise and in 1984 she made history when at age twenty-five she was the youngest person ever to become a member of the Grand Ole Opry.
It wasn’t long before she was offered a recording contract with RCA and later with sister label BNA, and a string of hits began. Timeless country standards like “Five Minutes,” “Something in Red,” and “Watch Me.”
Lorrie has sold over 6 million records worldwide but she has a lot left to do. In addition to her new recording projects, she maintains a rigorous touring schedule is currently at work on several new business endeavors. She’s living up to her reputation as one of country music’s premiere singers, and she’ll be entertaining us all for a long time to come.
Justin Martin continues to be a top finisher at national and world championship archery events. The idea behind “The Season” came from the conjunction of his love of hunting with his years of production experience.
“Too many people see the pro hunters on TV today and don’t really relate to them because the guy watching TV doesn’t get to hunt every day, all day or get to go to some of the remote locations that these guys do. I want to use my platform as an accomplished archer to show the guys and girls watching my show that I have a real job, real life and real responsibilities—just like they do. Along the way, we will get to hunt some really cool places and have a lot of fun all while taking care of business and family at home,” said Martin.
You can watch The Season with Justin Martin on Outdoor Channel from July to the end of December on Saturdays 8:30 pm ET, Tuesdays Noon ET, and Mondays at 2:30 am ET.
