About Lorrie Morgan
She’s been described as “one of the most eloquently emotive vocalists of modern times.” Lorrie Morgan’s career got off to an amazing start with three consecutive platinum albums. Her music showcases a range of emotions, from heartache to bright, shiny humor.
You’ll feel the heartache on her records “A Picture Of Me Without You” and “I Guess You Had To Be There.” But you’ll see another side of Lorrie on songs like “Watch Me, “What Part Of No,” and “I Didn’t Know My Own Strength.” And you get a sense of fun with her songs “Except For Monday” and “Go Away.” Then there’s her heartfelt song “Something In Red.”
Lorrie Morgan grew up in Music City and is the daughter of Country Music Hall of Fame member George Morgan. Lorrie’s debut on the Grand Ole Opry came at age 13, where she sang “Paper Roses.” And at 24 years old, Lorrie Morgan was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry.
The Miller Theater
The Miller Theater originally opened in 1940. It was founded by Frank J. Miller and his company Augusta Amusements. It was designed by a Jacksonville architect and would seat over 1600 patrons. This would be the second-largest theater in Georgia, with Atlanta’s Fox Theatre being the largest.
Throughout the years, the Miller Theater was a premier entertainment destination with hundreds of movies, musical acts, and other memorable events that were a part of its rich history. The Miller Theater would remain open for over 40 years, before closing in 1984.
The theater remained closed and in disrepair until 2005 when Peter Knox IV bought the theater in hopes of preserving the historical building. After some updates, in 2008, Knox offered the theater to the Symphony Orchestra Augusta, and they accepted.
Finally, in June 2016, a campaign was launched to help completely renovate the historic theater. The project spanned more than 7 years but proved many believed in the importance of preserving history.
