A native Tennessean, Cindy Morgan began her journey in a musical family. Her mother, a songwriter and gospel singer who played the piano, and her dad, a Volkswagen mechanic by day and songwriter/guitarist by night, provided Cindy with rich soil to grow in as a musician -- especially as a songwriter. Signing her first record deal with Word Records after high school, the prolific songstress gained instant success with a string of best-selling singer-songwriter pop records, garnering twenty-one number one singles, Dove and Grammy nods, and tours alongside some of the biggest names in gospel music. But it wasn't arena platforms that motivated Cindy's musical ambitions. Personally connecting to listeners through honest songwriting is the heart of her musical attention.
Having had a wide array of songs cut by a diverse roster of artists -- including India Arie, Mandisa, David Archuletta, Natalie Grant, Rachael Lampa, Sandi Patty and Michael W. Smith -- it is Cindy's own legendary artist discography -- featuring songs like "How Could I Ask For More," "I Will Be Free," "Praise the King" and "Listen," a number one single written with her late father Cova Morgan -- that endears her to audiences nationwide.
A two-time GRAMMY® nominee and one of Nashville's most influential singer/songwriters, Cindy Morgan has garnered 12 Dove Awards, 21 #1 hits, and has penned songs for such artists as Amy Grant, India.Arie, Rascal Flatts, Natalie Grant, Michael W. Smith and Francesca Battistelli, among many others. Half of the acclaimed pop duo St. Lola in the Fields with longtime writing partner Jeremy Bose, their songs have been featured in numerous films and television shows. In addition, Morgan co-created the Hymns for Hunger initiative with Dove-nominated singer/songwriter Andrew Greer. The annual tour helps raise awareness and resources for local and international hunger relief organizations.
Yeah! Cindy has a new CD!| Posted March 30, 2010
I love Cindy and have been listening to her for a very long time. Many of her songs bring me back to some very personal memories. Times in my life of deep places... I love her "realness" and she is very down to earth. I don't know about you, but I often feel in sinc with her. Perhaps I am not the only one? She has a new CD out. Hymns. "Some glad morning"... I intend to get it. Check it out!
