Friday, June 25, 2021: 7:30 pm at Granbury Live
This week we are traveling through the Texas Hill Country to the beautiful city of Granbury to see country singer Sonny Morgan Friday night.
Billed as The Most Intimate Venue in Texas, Granbury Live is located in the historic downtown Granbury Square. We hope to interview Morgan and perhaps a fan or two. If possible, we will be shooting footage for a future segment of “Songwriters Across Texas” television series.
Sonny Morgan was born and raised in Dallas Texas. From the early days of Sonny’s childhood, he was a music lover. From the time he was able, he sang in his church’s choir and played the trumpet all the way through high school. His other passion was the Automobile business.
Throughout the years he became extremely successful selling vehicles to clients such as Willie Nelson, Charlie Pride, Tom Landry and many others.
Just a few years ago, one of Sonny’s celebrity clients, George Strait challenged him to pursue his passion of singing. After meeting Ray Benson, Ray had Sonny on stage with Asleep at the Wheel at one of their performances for a duet. That’s all it took for performing on stage to get in Sonny’s blood.
Since that day with Asleep at the Wheel, Sonny has performed at numerous venues as well as his passion, to go sing to seniors who don’t have the opportunity to come to his shows.
Sonny has recorded two albums in Nashville and has had several songs on the Texas Country charts, including number one and number two song on the World Country Chart.
Sonny, his wife Karin and their rescued Greyhounds live in Granbury.
I didn’t know he lived here. You will like the venue, I’ve been there a few times. Enjoy Granbury. If you want a good steak, 1890 restaurant on the square is good. Farina’s Winery and restaurant is also good Italian. Ketzlers for German. Sorry, no good BBQ.

Thanks for the tips. We are about to embark on the drive there very soon. I have future posts scheduled out while we are traveling. A doctor friend of mine brought me pickles from Granbury from the “pickle guy.” Do you know who or where that might be? Thanks.
We have lived here since 2012 and haven’t heard of him. The restaurants are on the square. Enjoy your visit and the show.
