About the event

In a career spanning more than 15 years, Morgan has released six studio albums and a live recording from his hometown of Flint, Michigan. Additionally, he has toured relentlessly, averaging over 125 shows annually. Rolling Stone has described him as a “Waylon Jennings acolyte…modern day outlaw [with a] hard hitting blue-collar brand of music,” while NPR hailed, “Staying close to the sound and subject matter of classic outlaw artists like Waylon Jennings, Merle Haggard and David Allan Coe, Morgan is poised to lead this hand-worn brand of country to the next generation.”

Since Hard Times and White Lines, dubbed by American Songwriter as his “finest set yet,” came out in 2018 , Whitey Morgan has stayed active on the road and has recently begun teasing new music, produced by world renowned producer Shooter Jennings. In a surprise move to many of Morgan’s fans, he has announced his debut at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville on May 17th. With this debut, Morgan is not only cementing his place in country music’s pantheon but is also embracing a pivotal moment that signifies his evolution from a hard-touring artist to a recognized torchbearer for outlaw country’s enduring legacy.
