Craig Morgan Signs With BBR Music Group After New Single’s Viral Success
Craig Morgan's received a lot of help from his friends lately, with the likes of Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani, Kelly Clarkson, Luke Combs, Carson Daly, Ellen DeGeneres, the Today Show cast and several others successfully pushing for his new single "The Father, My Son and the Holy Ghost" to top the iTunes chart. The fruits of Morgan's success now include the country singer, television show host and proud Army veteran's return to BBR Music Group.
Morgan and BBR officially announced his partnership with Broken Bow Records, the group's original label, on Monday (Sept. 16). The country singer was previously part of the Broken Bow family from 2002 to 2008, releasing such career-defining songs as "International Harvester," "Redneck Yacht Club" and “That’s What I Love About Sunday" during that time.
“Craig Morgan and BBR made history together with "Almost Home," notching the first Top 10 for both,” recalls Jon Loba, executive vice president of BBR Music Group, in a press release. “Our hearts are overflowing with joy that he has chosen to work with us once again."
"The Father, My Son and the Holy Ghost" is Morgan's first new song in three years. It's a faith-based tribute to his teenage son Jerry, who drowned in a boating accident in July of 2016.
“I am truly humbled by the response to the song so far, and to my friend Blake Shelton for what he has done to honor Jerry,” says Morgan. “It’s incredible to reunite with the team at Broken Bow to share this song with radio, and my hope is it will be a help to those who need it most.”
