Craig Morgan to Make 11th Trip Overseas for Armed Forces
Craig Morgan may have left behind his career in the US Army to focus on his country music career, but he still is dedicated to the US troops serving all over the world.
The singer-songwriter will make his 11th trip to entertain the troops serving overseas this spring, heading to Southwest Asia with Armed Forces Entertainment and Stars and Stripes.
“As a former soldier myself, it is so important to me to have another opportunity to support our troops and do whatever I can to help keep morale high,” he notes. “I always jump at the chance to get over there and do my part.”
The married father of four made his first overseas troops to entertain the troops in 2003. In addition to performing for the service men and women, Morgan also helps support the spouses and dependents who remain stateside, through his work with Folds of Honor and Jack Daniel's Toast to Troops.
For his ongoing efforts, Morgan has been awarded the 2006 USO Merit Award, as well as the Humanitarian of the Year designation at the 2013 Golden Moose Awards.
Morgan, whose latest album, 'The Journey (Livin' Hits)' was released last year, appeared at the ACM Presents: An All-Star Salute to the Troops event, which will air on CBS on Tuesday, May 20 at 9PM ET.
In addition to heading overseas, Morgan has a calendar full of concerts over the next few months, including shows in California, Arizona and North Carolina later this month. See a complete list of his upcoming concerts here.
