Grits and Glamour: Pam Tillis and Lorrie Morgan
For more than thirty years, Pam Tillis and Lorrie Morgan followed similar, but separate careers. Raised in the south, both of them were daughters of country music stars and grew up watching their fathers perform on the Grand Ole Opry. They each appeared on the Opry as a child and continued on to have their own illustrious music careers. Pam Tillis is the winner of three Country Music Association awards, two Grammy awards, and an International Bluegrass Music Association award. Since 1990, she has charted more than 30 singles on the Billboard country charts, including “Maybe It Was Memphis” and “Mi Vida Loca.” Lorrie Morgan was only 13 when she made her first major appearance in 1975, singing “Paper Roses” with her dad. She is the youngest person ever to become a member of Opry, and has 14 Top-10 songs, including “Watch Me” and “Five Minutes.” On stage together, they provide harmonies for one another and charm the audience with stories about their songs. Just don’t ask who is “grits” and who is ”glamour”!
