Biography

Whitey Morgan and the 78’s are a Honky Tonk band from Flint, Michigan. They haven’t re-invented the wheel. They just picked it up and started it rolling all over again.

In Flint, most of the factories are closed, jobs are scarce and the people are bitter. Whitey sings songs these people can relate to. In much the same way his grandfather and mentor did over 3 decades ago, to ... Read more in Amazon's Whitey Morgan and the 78's Store

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Outlaw's always been the rough-around-the-edges, tuff guy uncle at the country music family picnic. Denim and leather, not Stetson and Nudie. Hair by Pennzoil, not Pomade. But, in the right hands---Haggard, Paycheck, Junior, Willie and Waylon and now Whitey Morgan---Outlaw is more than beards and bandanas, ink and attitude, it's goddamn folk music. It's about doing the best you can, about getting by and about cold beer and colder women---everything that keeps the honky tonks full on a Saturday night. It's about standing up when it'd just be easier to fall down.

Review

If sorrow, anguish and hard times are the foundation upon which country music was originally built, a case could be made that Flint, Michigan should be the new Nashville. --AOL Spinner

Their hardheaded honky-tonk twang is pure outlaw, channeling a rebellious spirit that s as true to their name-checked predecessors (Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, Hank Williams) as it is to the MC5. --Cleveland Scene

You may just find that these barely-known kids coming out of Michigan have made your favorite album of the year. They re stumbling their drunk asses onto my Essential Listening list. --Ninebullets

As far as outlaw country goes, Whitey Morgan is the real f*cking deal. Whisky-soaked, weed-smoked, firepit-stoked. The redo of Johnny Cash's 'Bad News' seals the deal. --Detroit Metro Times

A living embodiment of WWWD (What Would Waylon Do? --The Independent Weekly

This CD is what country radio should be playing today. This band apparently learned from the best. There are echoes of Waylon, both Hanks, Johnny, both Georges and everything that was good about country music years ago. With that said, they still manage to be contemporary. If you like Zac Brown and Jamey Johnson, you'll love Whitey Morgan and the 78's. They are the real deal.

Folks, this is the best pure honky tonk CD I have heard in a long time.
If you like Dale Watson, Lucky Tubb, Lucky Tomblin, Johnny Bush, you can't go wrong with this one.

This guy is a badass pure and simple. The whole album is great which is hard to find lately it seems. The sound is almost a throwback to the outlaw days of country music - Whitey Morgan nails it! Don't wonder about this one - do yourself a favor and just buy it.

What a great follow up to Honky Tonks and Cheap Motels, this is a five star album from a man showing Nashville where they are going wrong. It delivers in all areas great songs great instrumentation could be a contender for album of the year.Nashville record executives should be made to sit and listen to this over and over because this is how it is DONE a great album from start to finish BUY IT

I've been listening to these guys for years now. Great throwback outlaw, gritty country. The kind of music that makes ya feel something, makes ya remember something, or just makes you feel good. Buick City is one of those songs to crank up in your truck when you're rolling down the road. This band knows how to make great country music!!

Whitey Morgan, can be said to be a modern day savior of REAL Country music. This is the read deal, smart but heartfelt lyrics, great country delivery and a tight band that doesn't get in the way. You long for the days of Haggard & Jones, Jennings and Cash... but want a new sound in your ear... this is the man for you.
