Craig Morgan's resume is one of the most varied and impressive on earth -- soldier, sheriff's deputy, EMT, adventurer, TV host, motocross racer, outdoorsman, farmer, family man. And then there is the career that ties it all together.
"Music is like a center for all those things," says the man known as one of country's best singers and songwriters since "Almost Home" put him on the map in 2002. "It's the outlet for me to express everything I am. When I'm riding my dirt bike, you may not know about my music, and when I'm in a military environment, it's not the center point. But my music career allows me to talk about and be a part of all of those other energies in my life. When I'm on stage, I get to express all of it."
So it's no surprise that his new Black River Entertainment CD The Journey (Livin' Hits), which includes eight of his top hits and four powerful new tracks, is as much autobiography as musical statement.
Craig performs frequently for military audiences, both here and abroad (he has earned the U.S.O Merit Award), and is a frequent guest at the Grand Ole Opry. In fact, the two came together when he was invited to join the hallowed institution in 2008 during an appearance at Ft. Bragg, one of the places he'd been stationed during his military career.
Craig's widely varied but seamlessly integrated background adds believability no matter what subject matter he sings about--and it connects him with his audience in a way few others can claim.
All parts of his life come together on his television show, "Craig Morgan's All Access Outdoors," which is in its fourth season on the Outdoor Channel.
Over the course of the three-day Taste of Country Music Festival, over a dozen of the top performers stopped backstage to chat with ToC and talk about ... stuff. Thomas Rhett revealed why he won't gamble with Darius Rucker. Thompson Square talked "Bus Rules."
As Craig Morgan's 'Wake Up Lovin' You' climbs its way up the country charts, the singer wants to reward fans for making it a hit. Enter here to win an autographed guitar and a copy of his new 'The Journey: (Livin' Hits)' album.
