Overview

It's the blues world's loss that Lorrie Morgan is a country singer, because MY HEART proves what has been obvious all along: This gal could be one heck of a blues singer, if she so desired. After a detour into pop on her SECRET LOVE album last year, Morgan returns to the hard country and heartbreaking ballads she's known for and delivers a strictly powerhouse performance from the first cut to the last. Few contemporary singers probe the ways of the heart better than Morgan, and on MY HEART she gets in there again, but with a difference. This time she's confessing to some painful personal failings in relationships (and she's had a few, let it be noted), which makes for the most intimate take yet on her inner dialogues. The heartache and regret let Morgan show off her bluesy side, too. Her seductive, husky tone gives a line like "All I've let slip through my hands/I've left scratches on" (on "Never Been Good at Letting Go") the sort of deep, raw-nerve reading that hammers home her remorse. It's so poignant, you get the chills -- again and again.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Charlotte Dillon
My Heart, a 1999 album recorded by Lorrie Morgan, earned a Grammy award nomination, but not as much attention as expected. It would have probably done a lot better with more backing from Morgan's label at the time and the release of a few more singles from its track list. Though not well celebrated, it is still a good album filled with all new material. Morgan had some special help on this offering, including the vocal talents of gifted singer Jo Dee Messina on the tune "The Things That We Do." There is also a duet, "Maybe Not Tonight," with popular country singer Sammy Kershaw. This album is filled mostly with ballads, such as "I Did," "Where Does That Leave Me," "Strong Enough to Cry," and "Between Midnight and Tomorrow." There are a few songs added in to pick up the pace and invite a little toe-tapping, like the title track and "The Only Thing That Looks Good on Me Is You."
