With each release, Lorrie Morgan has consistently proven that she is one of the reigning queens of country music, and SHAKIN' THINGS UP is no exception. Her strong yet feminine voice realizes its full potential on this collection of sexy, and sometimes quirky, songs. Utilizing great country songwriters and first-call Nashville session players, co-producers James Stroud and Morgan have constructed a diverse set of songs which blend contemporary sounds with traditional country.
Each song in this collection has its own character which distinctly separates it from the others. Morgan displays her ability to handle many different styles, from old-fashioned country to blues and gorgeous ballads, with strength and confidence. "Shakin' Things Up," "You'd Think He'd Know Me Better," and a folksy rendition of the pop classic "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow" stand out as great performances.
