Cory Morrow takes the Huffines Performance Hall stage for an intimate acoustic concert on Saturday, March 19. Cory Morrow didn’t become a Texas legend by being quiet. From the beer soaked, dance hall days of his early career, to today’s more sober and spiritual leg of the journey, one thing about Morrow has never changed – as goes Cory’s life, goes Cory’s songs - and that’s never been more evident than on his newest studio release Whiskey & Pride.
The record is an aggressive blend of early Morrow sound with a current day perspective. Vintage feel from an evolving heart and mind. The title track, Whiskey & Pride features the age-old struggle of love versus ego and cleverly straddles the line of sermon and self-deprecation. The twist comes in the form of a mirror behind a bar that reveals the true identity of the accuser. The track, which is also the first single release, features the Texas Country-style instrumentation prevalent in Morrow’s early days, including steel guitar phenom and producer of Whiskey & Pride, Lloyd Maines.
If the new record, and this phase of Morrow’s career, had to be summed up in one word – the word would be “real”. As evidenced by his latest recordings, live shows, and online communication with fans, he’s not pandering, he’s simply doing what he knows. Pulling back the curtains, letting us in, and letting the chips fall where they may.
Whiskey & Pride is much more than a collection of songs. It’s another mile-marker in the journey of Cory Morrow.
Theater doors open: 7:30 p.m.
Concert begins at 8 p.m.
