Whitey Morgan's image is a double-edged marketing solution: He's a brawny, tattooed guy clad in denim, leather and black, with a hirsute visage that suggests he's just rolled off the set of Sons of Anarchy. Coupled with his race-baiting or race-teasing name, it's a look that appeals to those looking for a honky-tonk savior but perhaps intimidates those looking for something a bit less specific. But Morgan's music is mostly harmless if heartbroken tales of drinking and singing through the hurt. He's often hilarious, too, a self-aware storyteller who plays his weaknesses as punch lines and delivers his beliefs like credos. And his band offers strong and steady support for the big fellow up front, adding finesse to his plainsong country tenor. —Grayson Haver Currin
