An Austin legend, by way of Lubbock and his native Houston, Cory Morrow has been a consistent fixture on the Texas Country scene – establishing himself as a pioneer of the growth of the Lone Star State’s brand of Country music in the past decade. Now married and actively touring with a new band, with a renewed outlook on his life and career, Cory is set to release the latest volume of Red Dirt poetry in his musical tapestry.
In seventeen years, Cory Morrow has released nine full-length albums and an EP in Spring 2010, selling over 200,000 records, and has entertained audiences across the United States. His latest full-length album, Brand New Me, will be released August 31, 2010, on APEX Nashville/Write On Records. The album is produced by Lloyd Maines, and was recorded at Cedar Creek Studios in Austin. Its sound is anchored by the solid musicianship of Cory’s band – drummer Clint Litton, bassist Steve Cargill, keyboardist Jeff Bryant, and legendary lead guitarist John Carroll. Maines (steel guitar) and Brendon Anthony (fiddle) also added their own musical styling to the album. Fresh off the success of the single, “Ramblin’ Man” (#1 on both the Texas Music Chart and Texas Regional Radio Report), from the Ramblin’ Man EP – a reflection on his musical past – Brand New Me showcases the “brand new” artist that is Cory Morrow.
Cory and APEX Nashville have spent the first half of 2010 reconnecting him with Texas Country radio, and blazing the path for this new release. The album release will be followed by an extensive tour throughout Texas and its surrounding states. The album will be available in numerous retail markets, at shows, through digital download sites, and at online storefronts. There will also be special CD packages that will only be available at CD release shows.
