Morgan Cryar

Morgan Cryar

Morgan Cryar is a contemporary Christian music vocalist, songwriter, and producer, hailing from Louisiana. He is especially noted for his creative lyric-writing.

Cryar's debut, Keep No Secrets, was released in 1984, and its singles "Holy Fire" and "Carried Away" received moderate airplay on Christian radio; but it was his 1986 album, Fuel on the Fire, featuring the chart-topping contemporary Christian single (also nominated for a Dove Award for best video), "Pray in the U.S.A.," that began his road to success. Collaborating with producer Roy Salmond and composers Ty Tabor and Doug Pinnick (later of Kings X fame) and well-regarded CCM session player, John Andrew Schreiner, Fuel on the Fire contains some "foot-tapping ditties" and "tuneful ballads" that make up Mr. Cryar's vocal performance. In the 1980s, Cryar toured with big names in the CCM industry, such as Petra and DeGarmo and Key, promoting Fuel on the Fire and his 1989 follow up Like A River to receptive high school and college-age audiences.
