Morgan White was born in the southern coalfields of West Virginia to her parents, Howard Edward Shrum, Jr. and Teresa Shrum. By the age of two, Morgan began to exhibit a musical talent which would become her life-long passion. With a baby bottle in one hand and a microphone in the other, she performed at the local nursing home where her mother would stand her in a chair and she would sing classic, gospel songs.
Growing up a short drive from the childhood home of country music legend, Loretta Lynn, Morgan has grown into a modern-day coal miner’s daughter proving once again, that the Appalachian Mountains hold many other treasures than coal. Morgan’s early musical influences included such legends as Reba McEntire, Dolly Parton, Martina McBride, Shania Twain and LeAnn Rimes.
After years dreaming of success in Nashville, Morgan took a leap of faith and teamed up with producer /songwriter Jeremy Burchett to develop her first album titled “I’m Gone”. This album produced two number one singles; including the self titled track I’m Gone which remained at the top of the charts for twelve weeks straight on Hot Country Radio located in the Carolina’s.
In the fall of 2009, with the support of her husband, family, and friends Morgan headed south to Nashville, Tennessee to begin her pursuit of a recording contract. A year later, she was contacted by a well-known industry engineer who told her that her efforts were paying off. Morgan soon met with Elbert West, a multi-talented, Nashville-based, producer/singer/songwriter and was signed to MooTown Records in Nov. of 2009 where she remained for the next year and a half.
After taking a brief hiatus, Morgan joined up with singer/songwriter/producer, Beau Fuller, owner of Next Big Thing Entertainment. Fuller, who has enjoyed much success in his own right in the country music industry, continues to be an up-and-moving professional in the Nashville area. The pair are currently writing and recording Morgan's sophomore album in Nashville to be released soon.
Morgan has performed at venues throughout West Virginia and recently was selected by WQBE to open up their Keith Urban pre show at the Charleston Civic Center, she also performed at the official Keith Urban after party opening up for Brian Nutter. Morgan has grown tremendously as a singer/songwriter and looks forward to establishing herself as a talented artist alongside her many fellow country music idols and legends.
