Local musician to open concert
Big things come for those who take the chance.
Ask Ken Morrow, he'll tell you. After his first performance in front of crowd in June 2010, Morrow has plunged headlong into the world of the outlaw country troubadour. Next Friday at 7 p.m. he'll have come a long way from a Chattanooga stage where he first debuted when he opens up for Big & Rich at Fort Sill's Polo Field.
"The only thing bigger than playing the Polo Field on April 25 would be to play the Polo Field on 4th of July," Morrow said. "Me and my son Cooper drove by the stage last year and he made a comment, 'Dad, could you imagine playing on that stage?'"
"I responded by saying, 'I've been to a lot of concerts there son, I don't think I'll ever make it that far,"' he said.
Morrow said his mother bought him his first guitar when he was 15 and by the time he was 16, he'd written his first song. After becoming a bull rider and suffering tough injuries, a return to music also brought a new pathway. One that continues to exceed his desires.
"I never dreamed that I would be playing the venues that I play now," Morrow said.
