Opry.com’s Guide To What’s New In Country.
Two really does seem to be better than one when it comes to the Pam Tillis and Lorrie Morgan collaborative album that was released July 23. Tillis and Morgan have combined to form a duo called Grits and Glamour. Dos Divas is the duo’s first album, but the two have been singing together on the Grits and Glamour tour since 2009.
As far as the album title goes, “We’ve been called divas a time or two,” Morgan explains. “Now, I’m sure they meant it in the best sense of the word,” Tillis added.
Having been raised in the country music spotlight, the two have certainly earned their “country diva” status. They are both members of the Grand Ole Opry and daughters of Country Music Hall of Famers. Pam is the daughter of fellow Opry member Mel Tillis, and Lorrie is the daughter of late Opry legend George Morgan.
“Although we’ve practically grown up together, running in the same circles and backstage at the Opry as children, it truly is a newfound friendship,” said Tillis.
“We’ve known one another for years, but over the last few years we’ve grown from ‘someone you know’ to having a real ‘got your back’ kind of friendship,” said Morgan.
Dos Divas features fourteen tracks, consisting of six duets and four solos from each artist. Among the duets is a take on an old Mel Tillis song that was performed together by Tillis and Morgan’s fathers on a television show. The song, “I’m Tired,” brings a flair of traditional country music to the album while also paying tribute to the country music veterans they just so happened to call “Dad.”
The album ranges in moods almost as much as two women on tour together might. Songs like “What Was I Thinkin’” and “I Know What You Did Last Night” are lighthearted and playful, while “Another Chance To” and “Even the Stars” lean on the more serious, compelling side.
It’s not every day two country music queens join forces, so Dos Divas is quite the force to be reckoned with.
