He has traveled overseas to dangerous places to perform for our troops. He’s entertained countless fans in every corner of the globe and has shared the stage with Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, Trace Adkins and consistently sells out headlining dates. In addition to singing, Morgan is also a TV star, with his show “Craig Morgan: All Access Outdoors,” on the Outdoor Channel. It’s a 30 minute reality show that offers fans a look at Morgan’s extreme lifestyle at home as well as a roller coaster ride that is the music business.
