Whitey Morgan Sets 2024 Tour, Grand Ole Opry Debut


Where has Whitey Morgan been? He’s still been out on the road quite a bit, but instead of logging 280 days a year on the road like he did in his younger days, he’s spending a bit more time now perfecting his BBQ game and tending the homestead in Northern California.

But fans of the staunch country music Outlaw will have ample opportunities to see him in 2024 as Whitey and the 78’s will be hitting the road hard and heavy this spring and summer, including opening some big shows for close friends Cody Jinks, Jamey Johnson, and Whiskey Myers. Whitey also has plenty of headliner shows of his own, and a few extra special events.

Last week, Whitey announced that he will officially be making his Grand Ole Opry debut. Though Opry debuts are a little easier to come by these days thanks to the management of Dan Rogers, it feels like an especially validating moment for Whitey Morgan who has paid more dues than most, and always kept the Outlaw and independent spirit throughout his career.

“Very honored to have been asked to make my Opry Debut on May 17,” Whitey Morgan says. “It’s arguably the most important stage in country music, so grab a ticket and make it a little rowdy with me.”

Well before guys like Cody Jinks and Whiskey Myers were minting Gold and Platinum albums, Whitey Morgan was one of the original underground country artists, picking up the mantle from the oldtimers like Billy Joe Shaver and Billy Don Burns, and bringing the music to a new generation.

What a lot of folks want to know is when new music might be coming from the Flint, Michigan native. Whitey has never been prolific in his recorded output, but has been posting photos of himself in the studio lately, so stay tuned. Meanwhile, get out and see a show if you can.
