Chris Young Enjoys ‘Humbling’ Experience With Craig Morgan
Craig Morgan dedicates time every year to entertain American troops. As a veteran himself, after serving more than ten years in the U.S. Army, the singer is as passionate about supporting the military as he is his music career. On his most recent trip to the Middle East, he was joined by fellow country star Chris Young, along with a host of cameras to capture their experience for a GAC television special.
For Chris, it was the experience of a lifetime. "It was just one of the most amazing and humbling things I have ever had the opportunity to do," the singer tells GAC. "I'm 24 years old, and there are a lot of people my age who are just coming over here for the first time and in a much different capacity."
Held at the American Embassy in Iraq, the concert was monumental in that it marked the first time Iraqi citizens were able to enjoy a live performance by American artists. Chris and Craig were also joined on their trip by a pair of servicemen who suffered debilitating injuries while serving overseas.
Catch more of Craig, Chris and GAC host Nan Kelley on GAC's 'Stars For Stripes: Wounded Warriors Return,' premiering Dec. 11 at 9:30 PM ET on GAC.
