Five Husbands Later, Lorrie Morgan Finally Found The Love Of Her Life

Lorrie Morgan once recalled in her interview with The Tennessean how the little Morgan Anastasia looked at Whitley and said, “Would you adopt me?” and Whitley just started crying and said to her, “Honey, I would love to adopt you.”

However, what was supposed to be a happy family crumbled down when Whitley tragically died from alcohol poisoning three years after their marriage. Lorrie Morgan wrote about how Whitley battled with alcoholism in her 1997 autobiography Forever Yours, Faithfully: My Love Story. She shared that she’d sometimes tie their legs together just to keep her husband from sneaking out to get a drink.

Lorrie Morgan continued keeping the legacy and memory of her late husband alive. In 2019, Lorrie Morgan and her family honored Keith Whitley. They hosted a concert at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, featuring Trisha Yearwood, Garth Brooks, Darryl Worley, and so much more. The concert was held during the 30th anniversary of Whitley’s death.
