Whitey Morgan and the 78’s

Whitey Morgan is an American Honky Tonk artist from Flint, Michigan. His 2015 album Sonic Ranch reached #30 in Billboards US Country Charts, as well as #10 in their Heatseaker Charts.

In Flint, the factories are closed, jobs are scarce and the people are bitter. Whitey sings songs these people can relate to. In much the same way his grandfather and mentor did over 3 decades ago, to a whole generation of southern transplants who came up US-23 to Flint looking for the good life. In the spirit of William Morgan, Waylon, Merle and Paycheck; Whitey’s melodies help people forget their problems for a few hours and serve as the guideline for drinking sorrows away.

Emerging from the Detroit area music scene, Whitey relentlessly tours the country spreading his sound and attitude everywhere he goes. He play’s honky tonk tunes in any club in any town without apology—he and his band mates drive their point home just like their families drove the cars they built on the line home from work. With a purpose.

Ripping 200+ shows a year, you can count on Whitey Morgan to deliver and then some. “If I could, I’d play everyday all day. Maybe at some point, I’ll be so lucky to have such an option.” If you asked his feverishly loyal audience, they’d firm agree with him. “My fans are nothing short of amazing. They come back time and time again and each time they bring more & more people. That’s as good as it gets in my book.”

“This may be country music, but it’s dirtier and more dangerous than your average Tennessee two-step” Rolling Stone

“If you’re looking for a straightforward, real country album, then look no further than Whitey Morgan’s “Sonic Ranch”. It will be well worth your time.” This is Country Music
