Whitey Morgan Brings Outlaw Country to Beachland Ballroom


Whitey Morgan has been bringing his style, or reviving a long forgotten one, since his debut album Honky Tonks and Cheap Motels. The sound may not be what you will hear on the radio lately, but for Morgan it is what he was drawn to and believes in. His music is what blue-collar America had derived from and what his grandfather William Morgan influenced on him when he taught him how to play guitar. Though Morgan is from Flint, Michigan, his music is the closest you will come to the classic Nashville sound of Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings.

Morgan and his band the 78’s are normally on the road for at least 200 shows a year, but had been taking some time off to write and record new songs for an upcoming album and allow him to spend time with his new son. They kicked off their 24-city summer tour on June 8 in Wisconsin, which will also take them through the Midwest, interior West, the Carolinas and Deep South and into Texas.

Morgan will be performing along with Colter Wall and Ward Davis on Friday July 21 at the Beachland Ballroom in Cleveland. Tickets are $20 each and a 4-pack is $60. A VIP package is also available, which includes a Meet & Greet with Morgan and other goodies. Tickets are available Here.
