Morgan’s vocal style, combining country sincerity and pop sophistication, really took off in 1989 with the emotion-filled hit “Dear Me.” She won a CMA Award in 1990 for her work with her late husband, Keith Whitley, the great country traditionalist who had died the year before.

#throwbackthursday KC and The Sunshine Band Score First #1 as Writer & Producer of George McCrae's Landmark Hit "Rock Your Baby" in July 1974
MIAMI, Fla. (July 31, 2014) – Nixon resigns, The Oakland A's win the World Series, Mia Farrow graces the cover of the debut issue of People and the Harry Wayne “KC” Casey-penned and produced “Rock Your Baby” holds the #1 spot in an unheard of 51 countries. It’s 1974. Featured in the ‘From the Vaults’ section of Rolling Stone, “Rock Your Baby” was recorded by George McCrae and is considered a landmark recording of early disco. The international hit beat out The Righteous Brothers, Elton John, Gladys Knight & The Pips, Steely Dan and Olivia Newton John, among others, for the top spot and served as inspiration for John Lennon’s single "Whatever Gets You Thru the Night” and ABBA’s hit "Dancing Queen."
1974 and “Rock Your Baby” was just the beginning for KC and The Sunshine Band. In their over 40-year career, the iconic group went on to top the charts with seven #1 singles and three triple-platinum albums, win three Grammys, became the first act since The Beatles to score four #1 pop singles in one 12-month period and, somewhere along the way, helped to define a movement and an era.

One of the last remaining vestiges of live-to-tape, spontaneous variety programming on television today; the prevailing attitude is “the cameras are always rollin’... and we don’t care.” The fact that plates are dropped or broken during a performance, a rack of knives and forks are dumped on the floor or that some of the lights go out while they are filming only adds to the show’s mystique and contributes greatly to its success.
