The greater need

Greater Need is the fifth studio album, released in 1996, by American country music artist Lorrie Morgan. It included three singles, all of which entered the Billboard country singles charts: "By My Side" (a duet with then-husband Jon Randall), "I Just Might Be" and "Good as I Was to You."


Allmusic rated the album three stars out of five, with its review by Thom Owens saying that some tracks were "filler" but that "Morgan's performance is consistently stunning."
