NEW ALBUM "GOD, FAMILY, COUNTRY" OUT NOW!
Craig Morgan’s highly anticipated new album, God, Family, Country, is out TODAY, just in time for the Memorial Day weekend. Among the ten tracks on the album is a moving cover of Gavin DeGraw’s smash hit, “Soldier,” and the summer-y “Sippin’ On The Simple Life,” which Craig co-wrote with active duty Army Airborne Rangers Justin Wright and Andrew Yacovone.
To celebrate the album’s release, Craig will make several media stops throughout the week and continuing into the weekend, starting with iHeartMedia’s “The Bobby Bones Show” this past Thursday and the popular podcast, Jesus Calling. On the morning of release day he’ll interview on “Coffee, Country & Cody” (Circle), “Fox & Friends” (Fox News) and “The Daily Briefing with Dana Perino” (Fox News) before his live stream set, Fox Nation Presents: Craig Morgan at 7 p.m. CT. Additionally, on Saturday, May 23rd, fans can catch Craig on “CMT’s Hot 20” at 9/8 a.m. CT. Later that day, he will be featured on a special edition of “Circle Sessions” on the Circle All Access Facebook page and YouTube channel at 6:30 p.m. CT.
Craig’s busy release week continues this Saturday, May 23rd, as he takes the stage at the Grand Ole Opry to perform during a Memorial Day Weekend Salute The Troops Special. Craig, alongside Steven Curtis Chapman and Kellie Pickler will step on the stage at 8 PM ET / 7 PM CT. The show will be broadcast live on Circle and Gray TV stations, DISH Studio Channel 102, Sling TV and other TV affiliates in addition to a companion live stream on Circle All Access Facebook and YouTube channels.
To kick off Memorial Day, Craig will share a special performance of “Soldier” during “TODAY with Hoda & Jenna” in the 10 a.m. hour on NBC. And listen throughout the holiday weekend for Big D & Bubba’s God, Family, Country listening party with Craig Morgan and the USO, also airing Sunday on Armed Forces Network.
Released on Broken Bow Records, God, Family, Country is Craig’s first album in nearly four years, and combines five new songs with remastered versions of past hits mixed with future signatures, including his faith-filled tribute to his son Jerry, “The Father, My Son, and The Holy Ghost,” which topped the iTunes all-genre sales chart last September.
Though just release, God, Family, Country is receiving lots of praise from some of music’s high profile players: “That’s the point of God, Family, Country — to find a positive way forward through hardship. It’s a message embedded in the album’s five new songs, including the domestic spat in ‘Going Out Like This’ and the boots-on-the-ground commitment in a cover of Gavin DeGraw’s ‘Soldier.’ But it’s also clear that the themes always have been present in Morgan’s music.”, says Billboard. CMT has praised Craig himself saying that, “Few country artists put as much emotion into their music as Craig Morgan. The Army veteran and Grand Ole Opry star has always been able to blend fun-loving songs with sensitive ballads — and that still holds true in God, Family, Country.”
