About Misty Morgan

The country duo of songwriter/saxophonist/keyboardist Jack Blanchard and his wife, keyboardist Misty Morgan, placed 15 singles on the country charts between 1969 and 1975. The two were born (three years apart) in the same hospital in Buffalo, NY, and both moved to Ohio during childhood, but met on the club circuit in Hollywood, FL, where Morgan worked as a pianist and singer while Blanchard was performing as a pianist and comedian. They were soon married, but did not team up professionally for five years. In 1969, they made their recording debut as a team -- Blanchard had begun a solo career in 1959 -- with the Top 60 single "Big Black Bird." The next year they released "Tennesee Bird Walk," and it not only reached the top of the country charts, but also crossed over and did respectably well on the pop charts. Following the success of "Humphrey the Camel," which also crossed over to the pop charts, the duo had a Top 30 hit with "You've Got Your Troubles (I've Got Mine)." Blanchard and Morgan moved to Mega in 1971 and scored such hits as "There Must Be More to Life (Than Growing Old)" and "The Legendary Chicken Fairy." In 1973, the two moved to Epic and had their last major hit, "Just One More Song," before moving on to subsequent record companies. The duo eventually decided to do it themselves and, in the new millennium, enjoyed success on the Indie World Country charts as singles off of their self-released Back From the Dead albums hit number one. ~ Sandra Brennan
