Watch Craig Morgan Sing ‘When I’m Gone’ With His Famous Friends
For a new video, Morgan asked some of his friends to send him clips of themselves singing the song, and they’ve all been sewn together into one star-studded sing-a-long. Country fans will be able to spot Dustin Lynch, Charlie Daniels, Thompson Square, Tracy Lawrence and more artists, as well as comedian Bill Engvall, MMA wrestler Randy Couture, NFL star Chris Kelsay and more.
There’s no special editing tricks and no fancy transitions — just simple, selfie-style videos, taken while Morgan’s famous friends were driving (we don’t recommend trying that at home!), hanging out at their houses and going about their everyday lives. What makes the clip even more fun is that you can actually hear the other artists and celebs singing along to the tune and adding their own flair. Press play above to watch the mash-up.
“When I’m Gone” was written by Justin Ebach and Steven Dale Jones, and Morgan says that, from the moment he heard it, “I knew I had to record it because it’s so exactly me.”
“It’s no secret I’ve got an adventurous side. I’ve been a rodeo clown, I’ve raced sled dogs in the Arctic, and I’ve broken more bones than I can count,” he explains. “But more than anything else, I want to be remembered as the guy who lived his life to the fullest with and for my family and friends. That’s what I want my legacy to be.”
“When I’m Gone” is available for download on iTunes.
