Lorrie Morgan's Enchanted Christmas

Enjoy country legend Lorrie Morgan as she performs her Enchanted Christmas show in the fabulous Marion Cultural and Civic Center. 

Tickets available Friday October 19, 2018, at 

www.MarionCCC.com

A portion of the proceeds will benefit St. Jude’s. 

Lorrie Morgan has sold over eight million 
records including fourteen top ten hits, twelve recorded albums and four Female Vocalist of the Year awards. She was the first female artist to ever have three consecutive albums RIAA-Certified Platinum®. She made her mark with what have now become timeless 
country standards, “Five Minutes,” “Except For Monday,” “Something In Red,” “Watch Me”
and “What Part Of No,” and established her place as a country star—a modern woman making country music history. Loretta Lynn Morgan was born to make music. At 13, she made her first and everlasting impression on the country music world when she played at 
The Grand Ole Opry, making her one of the youngest to have made her debut at the Mother Church of Country Music. Three short years later after her dad, country music star George 
Morgan’s passing, Lorrie launched her own career touring with her father’s band. She made history of her own when she became a lifetime member of the Grand Ole Opry at the age of 
24 — one of the youngest to ever become a member.
