2008 Dove Award Songwriter Of The Year Cindy Morgan’s New Album Available Online Today

NEWS SOURCE: Barefoot Mama Records

Cindy Morgan With her first venture into producing her own record, Cindy Morgan seems to have found her niche. ChristianMusicToday calls her brand new album ‘Beautiful Bird’, “hands down, the best album of Cindy Morgan's career, offering her strongest, most consistent batch of songs while continuing to demonstrate an ear for solid pop craftsmanship.”

Beautiful Bird returns Morgan to her Appalachian roots, and is a mix of all the musical styles Morgan has been a fan of. “It is a mix of Pop, Appalachia, Country, and Symphonic."

"In her own words Morgan says," I can’t choose the cello over the doboro so I wanted to make a record where they could live together. I am also a great admirer and pursuer of the art of writing a great country song. A lot of the lyrics are from that approach."

Morgan explains her choice to self-produce “I have produced my own demos for years and spent the better part of my adult life in a studio but until now, hadn’t felt completely ready for such a task. I have been so fortunate to work with so many great producers over the years. For the last couple of years, there has been a little voice in my head telling me to step out and stand on my own two creative feet. So that is what I decided to do. I headed up the production of this record but certainly not without a lot of help on the technical side of things from my engineer and co-producer Stephen Leiweke” . (Jars Of Clay, Margaret Becker, Kids In The Way)

Morgan is releasing ‘Beautiful Bird’ exclusively in digital format through her website ( and iTunes as well as other hand picked online outlets. “The wonderful thing about doing a record like this is that you throw the rule book out the window… it really leaves the creative spirit free to let each song and the record as a whole be what it is without boundaries that often squash the creative process.”
