Biography

Lathan Garrett Moore, 27 years old, from Harrisburg, Illinois has been singing since the age of four. Growing up in a small coal mining community where his father worked the mines for 35 years gave Lathan an appreciation for hard work and perseverance. After graduating from Harrisburg High School in 2001, Lathan joined a country Gospel Quartet called "Eastern Sky" to sing baritone and toured for two years throughout the Mid-east and Ohio Valley. Lathan also was a member of the Reliance Quartet from Paducah, Kentucky, where he sang lead.
Lathan was very active in the theatre and performing arts and played the lead roles in "Phantom of the Opera", "Beauty and the Beast", "My Fair Lady", "Annie", "The Grinch", "Annie Get Your Gun" and "A Funny Thing Happened On the Way to the Forum". Shortly after opening for the Gaither Vocal Band, Lathan moved to Plainview, TX for school at Wayland Baptist University. While in Texas Lathan continued to develop his interest in country music. After completing a year of college, Lathan returned to Harrisburg, Illinois to work in the mines in order to save enough money to move to Nashville, Tennessee so he could pursue his career as a country music singer.

In 2004, Lathan entered the Southern Illinois Regional Colgate Country Showdown in Carmi, Illinois and finished in 2nd place. As a result, he was contacted by Chelsea Studios in Nashville, Tennessee to do some recording and for six months, traveled back and forth recording song demos. In 2004, Lathan finally had saved enough money to make the move from Illinois to Nashville and began performing in local venues and at private corporate events. Lathan plays the guitar, trumpet, trombone, and tuba and is currently developing his songwriting craft. Lathan has recently signed a recording contract with Blue Steel Records and finished his debut album.

Lyrics

I'd Rather Be Lucky Than Good

Written By: Lathan Moore

I’D RATHER BE LUCKY THAN GOOD

went fishin with my buddies out on the lake
bobby lent me a pole billy threw me some bait
skeeters were the only bites they got the whole time
I was reelin em in with every toss of the line

Chorus
some got it, some ain't
some can, some can't
ain't earned it, don't deserve it
but knock on wood
I'd rather be lucky than good

my buddies like to brag about the ones that got away
bass cat or trout i ain't heard a word all day
I was throwin big ones back they couldn't catch there breath
so I sat down and popped a top and laughed myself to death

some got it, some ain't
some can, some can't
ain't earned it, don't deserve it
but knock on wood
I'd rather be lucky than good

we dropped off for a cold one at the dew drop in
the waitress was an angel with a body for sin
every man in the bar was fallin at her feet
good fortune was smilin, she was smilin at me

Lathan Moore / Terry Clayton / Kevin Mason / Roger West

Forever Man

Written By: Lathan Moore

FOREVER MAN
(Brent Baxter, Lathan Moore, Kevin Mason)
VERSE:
Hopeless headlines in the paper
It’s a different heartache every day
Seems there’s not much you can count on
Just count on things to change
But I’ll always stay the same
CHORUS:
I’m your Forever Man
A rock where you can stand
In a world of shifting sand
I will be here
Sure as the morning sun
I’m gonna prove my love
Over and over again
I’m your Forever Man
VERSE:
Maybe you feel unworthy
Or your past makes you ashamed
And you’re scared that if I knew you
I’d turn my back and walk away
But touch my scars, trust my grace
CHORUS: [REPEAT]
TAG: Sure as the morning sun
I’m gonna prove my love
Over and over again
I’m your Forever Man
Hopeless headlines in the paper
A different heartache every day
