County music legends Pam Tillis and Lorrie Morgan brought their “Grits and Glamour” Tour to Reynolds Hall in the Smith Center for the Performing Arts on Saturday night, and contributing photographer Tom Donoghue was onsite for his photo gallery.
Tillis and Morgan are both daughters of County Music Hall of Fame inductees — Mel Tillis and George Morgan, respectively. Tillis, in a glittery gold dress and light-brown boots, and Morgan, in a glittery silver top and blue jeans, kept the staging simple with a vase of red roses atop a small table, themselves perched atop two stools and accompanied by a violinist and a guitarist.
Tillis is known for her hits “Maybe It Was Memphis,” “Mi Vida Loca (My Crazy Life)” (her lone No. 1 song), “Shake the Sugar Tree,” “Let That Pony Run” and “When You Walk in the Room,” among others, and Morgan’s hits include her three No. 1 smashes “Five Minutes,” “What Part of No” and “I Didn’t Know My Own Strength” (not to be confused with the Whitney Houston song from 2009).
Morgan’s birth name is Loretta Lynn Morgan, and she has been married six times. NFL legend and former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman is among her ex-boyfriends. Tillis and Morgan released their duet “I Know What You Did Last Night” on July 23.
