Craig Morgan Recovering From Shoulder Surgery

Craig Morgan is known as much for his adventurous antics off stage as his energetic performances on stage, but it seems his actions have finally caught up with him.

The 49-year-old was scheduled for a routine shoulder surgery earlier this week to repair torn tendons, but unfortunately, the operation ended up being much more extensive than doctors originally anticipated. After several hours in surgery, Morgan had six screws placed in his shoulder to repair bone fractures.

The Tennessee native has had to cancel several of his upcoming appearances in light of his unplanned lengthy recovery time, including concerts in Chattanooga, Tenn. and Twenty-Nine Palms, Calif., as well as his appearance on the CBS TV show, ‘The Talk,’ and an upcoming performance at the Grand Ole Opry.

But the Army veteran will continue most of his recovery on the road, albeit in a sling for a few weeks. His next scheduled appearance is on May 23 in Hunstville, Tenn. Keep track of any concert updates here.

Morgan is anticipated to be on the mend in time to meet with his fans for his annual fan club party, which occurs during Nashville’s CMA Music Fest. The Wake Up Racing You Fan Club Party, which is set for June 4 at Music City Indoor Karting in Nashville. Tickets, which are $25, include breakfast, an acoustic concert, meet and greet and spectator tickets for the race. Tickets are available for purchase here.

Morgan is also one of the featured acts for the upcoming 2014 Taste of Country Music Festival, which takes place from June 13-15 at Hunter Mountain in New York.

The Boot extends our well wishes to Morgan for a speedy recovery!
