Cory Morrow

Happiness has always come naturally to Cory Morrow. With his rollicking, soulful, feel-good Texas country, he has made thousands jump on tabletops, shimmy, scream, and suspend worries for almost two decades, like a honky-tonk pied piperand he shows no signs of stopping. But these days, Morrow is also devoted to something more.Ive always been able to find happiness and help others find happiness, he says. But theres a difference between happiness and joy. Now, I feel like theres a deeper sense of joy thats not circumstantial.That deep joy courses throughout The Good Fight, released June 16, 2015. The 15-song collection was recorded at East Austins 12th Street Sound and polished at the Zone Recording Studio in nearby Dripping Springs, Texas. Reflecting on the process from his home in Austin, Morrow says, I want it to be right. Looking back on other albums, I feel like Ive settled on certain things. And this time, I really dont want to settle.Listening to The Good Fight, its immediately clear that this is a record brimming with guts, truth, and growthnot compromises.Morrow sings hard, proving his smooth, fiery drawl has only gotten better with age. The music revels in a life full of love and purpose, drawing on gritty rock, thumping gospel, and Morrows signature juke-joint country. Many of the songs address faith and relationships, both human and holy, with urgency, gratitude, and wonder. I think there has always been a thread of spirituality in everything Ive doneIve always been searching for something more, he says. But in the last five or six years, Ive started to actually find it. And in the last three or four years, Ive begun to come into really deep contact with itto walk in it.As a songwriter, Morrow has retained his token wit and self-deprecating humor, two traits that play well with the albums loftier themes. His circle of collaborators continues to expand: Nashville aces Brian Keane and Mando Saenz, along with Texas troubadours such as Carter Beckworth, joined an existing cast of favorites that includes the sagacious Owen Temple.Written with Keane, I Dont Mind captures the bliss of submitting your will to that of a higher power with piano-fueled, tent-revival panache. I love the way that it speaks and the truth that it speaks, Morrow says of the song.Another track that Morrow tackles with a gospel-worthy aplomb, Dreams was penned with friend Matt Davis, who runs beloved Tomball, Texas venue Main Street Crossing. I think were all dreaming to do more, he says. I find my dreams changing. Theyre getting bigger in that theyre focusing less on me and more on what I can do for others. And that can be a really scary concept for me, because Ive spent most of my life doing for myselfand that was pretty easy. And pretty fun, he says, laughing.When asked what doing for others looks like for him, Morrow doesnt hesitate: Serving. Its little things all the time. He mentions his band, and the urge to care for them as people and friends. He brings up his wife, Sherry, and his dedication to her, as well as their shared commitment to supporting organizations such as the Salvation Army in new, concrete ways. Its looking around my community and just seeing where theres loss or grief or suffering. Is there any way I can be there for somebody? he says. Even if its for me to just be in the room, quiet and available.His newfound dedication to seeking out hurt and need around him emanates throughout the album. In and Out of Light explores the ideal balance between consistency and change, and serves as a call to see the downtrodden we so often choose to overlook. He sounds a similar cry on the soaring Let Us Love, a chest-pounding anthem pleading for open hearts, and Hiding Anything, in which he encourages listeners to fall into arms that you cant see.Old Soul is signature Morrow, gleefully mixing profound and silly to create a song thats introspective, enlightening, and playful. Im an old soul, searching for a new way to rock and roll, he sings
