|Teaming with producer/songwriter/guitarist Keith Gattis (Dwight Yoakam and Waylon Payne), Nothing Left To Hide blends West Coast country and rock sounds with Texas storytelling, resulting in a tight mix of ballads and stompers with lyrical depth.|
Morrow penned several songs for Nothing Left to Hide that mirror the changes he was going through, including "Heart of Fire" (a life-affirming anthem with a galloping beat); the first single, "Beat of Your Heart" ( romantic lyrics with drum-driven organ swells); "A Whole Lot" (with its big arena sound); and the closer, "Carnival Ride" (a modern dirge).
"Really, this record is an extension of my growth as a songwriter, performer and--more important--as a person. I've grown a lot from the time that I put out my last studio record. I've found that going with my gut and listening to my heart is the most important thing," says Morrow. "I wanted Keith to produce this record from the get-go, and he was instrumental in cultivating my music, molding it and shaping it into new directions. He allowed other influences to break through without stripping away the roots or core of what I do best."
