Craig Morgan reveals His Origins

Posted on 16 November 2012 by Bill West

 

Craig Morgan

“I tell people all the time ‘I’m not a redneck, I’m not a hillbilly and I’m not a cowboy.  And I don’t pretend to be,” says Craig Morgan in Origins: Craig Morgan premiering Wednesday, November 14, 10:00 p.m./EST on GAC.  “What I am is a country boy.”

 

Morgan is a native Tennessean who’s raised his family on a five acre spread in Dickson, TN., west of Nashville.  Those who know him best – his wife, his father, his manager, even his Army commander – help tell Morgan’s story of two successful careers, one as a chart-topping country star and one as a respected military man. In fact, he’s the first to admit that he nearly chose to make the Army his career.  “When I was in the Army, I caught myself playing guitar and writing songs.  I’d come home on a four-day weekend and go to Nashville and do a writer’s night but I was still in the Army fulltime,” Morgan says.  “I had a family so I didn’t want to jump out of the Army and go to something that wasn’t going to happen.”

 

Fortunately for him, it did happen; he signed a major label record deal while still in the Reserves and since then he’s charted 14 Top 10 hits and became a member of the Grand Ole Opry while continuing to enjoy family life, and hobbies like hunting and riding dirt bikes competitively.  “When I’m hunting, it’s the only thing I do in my life where my brain is not running 90 miles an hour.”

 

Morgan also continues to give back to the military, travelling to Afghanistan and Iraq and spending time with soldiers whenever possible.  “They are doing something for people that are making sacrifices most humans cannot comprehend,” he says of his ongoing volunteer work with military outreach.

 

Viewers will also be treated to acoustic performances of some of Morgan’s biggest hits including “More Trucks Than Cars,” “Love Loves a Long Night,” “Redneck Yacht Club” and “This Ole Boy,” performed at Dickson’s Grand Ole Hatchery, a club where he’d try out his songs long before getting a record deal.

Craig Morgan Single Added To That’s Why Album

Posted on 27 June 2009 by Bill West


Craig Morgan

Craig Morgan

NASHVILLE, TN – Craig Morgan has been heating up concert stages across the country this summer with his high-energy, hit-packed shows, electrifying capacity-level crowds with his unique dynamic of presenting the high energy of an arena rock show, yet maintaining a sense of intimacy with his audience. Craig’s signature hits always bring the crowds to their feet, but lately a new song has been a fan favorite at his shows. “Bonfire” is a newly-written song Craig decided to test out in concert a couple of months ago, and the response to the song was intense and instantaneous. Craig soon added the song to his regular set list, and ultimately decided to give the fans what they want….he went into the studio and recorded the song.

Craig’s record label, BNA, had the same reaction to the song that the fans did, and rather than wait for a new album, decided to add “Bonfire” to Craig’s That’s Why CD. BNA reissued the album this month, with another Morgan-penned new tune, “This Ain’t Nothin’,” also added to the record. The album also includes the Top 10 hit, “Love Remembers.”

“Bonfire” hit radio last month, and is proving to be one of the fastest rising songs of Craig’s career.

“I love writing and singing about the simplest pleasures of life’s little things, and the fans always react to that. I think that’s why ‘Bonfire’ has struck such a chord with everybody,” says Craig of his latest hit. “Whether you’re camping, at the beach or just cooking out, bonfires lots of times are the highlights of a summer party. We’re just bringing a little bit of that party to life in this song!”
