Album: A Sense of Pride
Release date: September 14, 2019
Gary Morris is putting the final touches on his upcoming album which will be called A Sense of Pride after the song of the same name. The project is produced by Michael Bonagura of Bailey & the Boys.
“This record, for the record, is my personality, my own belief system. There’s some fine arts stuff in it, but it’s almost completely about the intimate details,” Morris said. “’I’m In Church’ is a song is about… well, I am an avid hunter and fly fisherman and the song’s about nature and being close to God. And another song is called ‘Paint Me a River,’ It’s a 99 percent acoustic record, there’s a steel guitar on one track, maybe a little bit more added; but the rest is guitar and bass and mandolin. It’s a fun record.” Morris wrote all the songs on this new project.
Morris has recorded twelve albums which spawned 16 Top 10 and five No.1 hit singles, including “Why Lady Why,” “The Love She Found in Me,” “Baby Bye Bye,” “100% Chance of Rain,” “Leave Me Lonely.” In 1984, his original rendition of “Wind Beneath My Wings” won both the Country Music Association and the Academy of Country Music Song of the Year Award. In 1982, he was also named Billboard’s “Male Artist of the Year.” “Wind Beneath My Wings,” quickly a classic, has since been recorded by a couple of hundred other folks
