Singer and songwriter, Cory Morrow, didn’t become a Texas legend overnight. He started playing the guitar as a teen. He dropped out of Texas Tech University in the early 90s to pursue music full time. Morrow has been playing live shows and releasing records for twenty-two years. We recently chatted with the hitmaker about his latest endeavors.
Q: What was the inspiration behind your new album, Whiskey and Pride?
A: Every record that I have ever done is basically a biography of a specific time in my life. If you listen to this album, you can get a synopsis of what has been happening with me over the last couple of years. Writing is therapeutic for me. I have five kids. I have found my way to faith and I am living my life in that direction. We still play songs about strippers and beer, haha. But now, we also incorporate songs in our shows that have a more spiritual meaning. Whisky and Pride is a reflection of that.
Q: When people listen to this record, what do you want them to take away from it?
A: I am very happy with the way Whiskey and Pride turned out. We recorded it The Zone Recording Studio in Dripping Springs, Texas. I like the way my voice sounds. The words are meaningful. The whole album moves me. I hope when people listen, they feel the same way. The songs are both similar and different from what we have done in the past. Right now, my favorite track is “Top Of My Heart”. It is about learning how to fully love someone. But, like any artist, my favorite song on a new album changes all the time. There are also a few cover songs for fans to enjoy.
Q: There are so many Cory Morrow Band fans out there. What can they expect next?
A: We are crazy busy right now. Excited to get Whiskey and Pride out there for people to hear. Before the end of this year we are going to record a live concert at the Polunsky Unit prison in Livingston, Texas. In May 2019, we are trying to get together a family friendly festival in San Marcos, which is close to where we live. Then, in June, we are hosting with Mitch Royer a Holy Land Tour in Israel. It will be a once in a lifetime, memorable experience. Fans can check out our website for more information on that.
