AllMusic Review by

Real life lovers singing duets together in country music is nothing new, but this 12-track collection does offer something fresh -- a wide-ranging group of songs from traditional country to a bit of mellow rock to tender ballads. Lorrie Morgan's voice is raspy and pleasant and Sammy Kershaw's is distinctively country, and when they come together for their six duets, they sound smooth and melodious. The more notable duets are up-tempo songs and not the standard romantic fare -- "He Drinks Tequila" describes what a trailer park queen and her hard-working husband do on weekends, and "3 Seconds" is how long you have to explain your wrongdoing in a relationship -- are playful and fun. Both artists have three solos each, including a song Morgan wrote in just five minutes when she was only 18, the insightful "I Must Be Gettin' Older," and a song with a rock edge that Kershaw wrote in 15 minutes, titled "Sugar." I Finally Found Someone is a half-decent album, especially for a first-time full-length pairing.
