Whitey Morgan is at the top of his game, lording over the honky-tonk, outlaw country soundscape. His full and booming baritone voice has a commanding presence. Heavy pedal steel beats with hints of fiddles complement and amplifies his rich sound that calls attention and triggers explosion energy. Whitey Morgan and the 78s started out playing gigs in bars and clubs around Detroit and Flint. Early in their careers, they released their self-produced EP and their debut album. Their 2008 release "Honky Tonks and Cheap Motels" showcased a cover of Bruce Springsteen's "I'm on Fire." These efforts bore them fruit that signaled their career as ripe for the picking. They scooped up three Detroit Music Awards in 2009, which established their reputation as one of Motor City's newest homegrown stars. Since then, the band has seen their singles and albums climb, take positions, and peak at the Billboard charts. "Sonic Ranch" is considered as their most successful album to date, peaking at No. 30 on the Country Albums chart and took a grip on the No. 10 on the Heatseekers chart.
