Morgan pens memoir

Wednesday, March 16, 2022 – Craig Morgan will release his memoir, "God, Family, Country Soldier, Singer, Husband, Dad—There's a Whole Lot More to Me," on Sept. 27 via Blackstone Publishing.

Morgan shares all aspects from his life, including how he worked alongside the CIA as a soldier in Panama or fought sex traffickers as an undercover agent in Thailand.

Morgan writes of how an on-stage appearance with his father's band at age 10 may have planted the seeds for country music, but first he trained as a paratrooper in the army. He served 17 years in the Army and Army Reserves. But then he left the active military to pursue music.

He achieved his first success with the ballad "Almost Home." Other hits soon followed, from party songs like "Redneck Yacht Club" to the soul-rending "The Father, My Son, and the Holy Ghost," which resulted from the anguish of his son Jerry's passing.

Morgan also will read the audiobook of the memoir.

He will put his survival skills learned in the military to work in the new TV series, "Beyond The Edge," premiering March 16 on CBS. Morgan will compete for Operation Finally Home, which provides custom-built, mortgage-free homes to wounded veterans and their families.

For his first album of original material in four years as and his second for Black River, he makes it abundantly clear in the liner notes that he is a devout Christian and the tone of the album reflects ...
CD review - This Ole Boy Craig Morgan likes to keep things simple. Once dubbed "country music's champion of the Everyman" he is best known best known for songs that espouse the core values of the genre: Faith ( That's What I Love About Sunday), good times, ( Redneck Yacht Club) and helping others ( Almost Home ). We get much of the same on "This Ole Boy," his first new music in three years and debut with Black River Entertainment. Disappointingly, the patriotism, religion and love ...
