Happiness has always come naturally to Cory Morrow. With his rollicking, soulful, feel-good Texas country, he has made thousands jump on tabletops, shimmy, scream, and suspend worries for almost two decades, like a honky-tonk pied piper––and he shows no signs of stopping. That deep joy courses throughout his most recent album The Good Fight, released in 2015. Listening to the album, it’s immediately clear that this is a record brimming with guts, truth, and growth––not compromises. Morrow sings hard, proving his smooth, fiery drawl has only gotten better with age. The music revels in a life full of love and purpose, drawing on gritty rock, thumping gospel, and Morrow’s signature juke-joint country. Many of the songs address faith and relationships, both human and holy, with urgency, gratitude, and wonder. As a songwriter, Morrow has retained his token wit and self-deprecating humor, two traits that play well with the album’s loftier themes. Since the release of The Good Fight, Morrow continues to connect with his fans — drawing standing-room-only crowds, filling dance floors and delighting music lovers with more than 150 high-energy performances a year — on tours that take his music across Texas and the United States.
