Whitey Morgan and the 78’s (from the album Hard Times and White Lines available on Whitey Morgan Music)
Highways and honky-tonks are the backdrop for the songs of Whitey Morgan and the 78’s on their recent release, Hard Times and White Lines. Diary pages not for the feint of heart line the halls of Hard Times and White Linesas Whitey Morgan and the 78’s harness the horsepower of life on the road; beats that stomp for attention, guitars putting power in their chords. Hard Times and White Linesplays stories that work for a living. Whitey Morgan and the 78’s putting their own blue-collar lifestyle into the tales as they gauge the distance between where they are and hope to be in “Hard to Get High”, understand the plight of a night shift laborer with “What Am I Supposed to Do”, and learn to let go in “Tired of Rain”.
Comfortable with both self-penned cuts and interpretations of tunes from ZZ Top (“Just Got Paid”) and Dale Watson (“Carryin’ On”), Whitey Morgan offers a third of the tracks on the album as originals. Co-writing with a number of artists, White Morgan offers several songs co-written with Travis Meadows, Hard Times and White Linespresenting a goodbye tune from the pair with “Around Here” as well as a traveling troubadour anthem in “Bourbon and the Blues”. Paralleling album with lifestyle, Whitey Morgan and the 78’s polish the songs on Hard Times and White Lineswith a rough cloth, opening the album with the first cut descending into “Honky Tonk Hell” and as the album exits on a Country ramble claim with “Wild and Reckless”.
