Whatever Happened To Gary Morris?
He had one of the most beautiful and soaring voices in all of Country Music.
Gary Morris first came to my attention in the early 1980's. Raised in the Lone Star state of Texas, Gary released an album in 1983, 'Why Lady Why', and several years before Bette Midler would have a Pop hit with 'Wind beneath My Wings', Gary had a huge hit with it on the Country Music chart.
While many called Gary's style 'country-politan', I just thought....wow, what a voice this guy has! That album, 'Why Lady Why', included several hit singles, including the title cut.
Perhaps not surprisingly, Gary took that beautiful voice to Broadway, starring in a production of 'Les Miserables' as jean Valjean. It was one of multiple productions that Gary starred and sang in.
At the age of 65, Gary continues to sing, perform and work in the music business and we're all happy about that! And one more time, to highlight that beautiful voice, listen and watch as Gray performs the Gospel standard 'Amazing Grace'.
