Country Artists We’ve Lost in 2012: Danny Morrison
Songwriter Danny Morrison died in February after a heart attack sent the 67-year-old to the hospital. His resume of hits is lengthy, including ‘Blaze of Glory’ by Kenny Rogers and ‘Is it Cold in Here’ by Joe Diffie. Additionally, he wrote cuts for Alabama, Lee Greenwood, George Jones, Reba McEntire and Johnny Paycheck. “Danny was a very unique and creative individual,” his friend Tom Long tells Music Row. “He had an inspiring wit, a huge heart, and a love for music and especially songwriters. He carved his own notch in Music Row history.” Morrison is survived by his wife, Sherri West.
