Craig Morgan at the Island Resort & Casino
HARRIS –Country music superstar Craig Morgan is making his way to the Upper Peninsula on March 10 and 11 at the Island Resort and Casino Showroom at 8 p.m.
Morgan, who is known for his hits “That’s What I Love About Sunday,” “Redneck Yacht Club,” and “International Harvester” has performed all around the country and was inducted as a member of the Grand Ole Opry in 2008.
Craig Morgan Greer was born in Kingston Springs, Tenn. on July 17, 1964. He became an emergency medical technician at age 18, and served on active duty for nine and a half years in the U.S. Army as a member of the 101st and 82nd Airborne Divisions and remained in the reserves for another six and a half years.
After doing work singing demos for other songwriters and publishing companies, the demos led to Morgan releasing his first album with Atlantic Records, the self-titled “Craig Morgan” in 2000.
Along with his many musical achievements, Morgan is a passionate champion of the military, a philanthropist and a celebrated motivational speaker.
Morgan’s currrent studio album titled “A Whole Lot More To Me” is sure to further his reputation as one of the genre’s most commanding vocalists. According to Morgan’s website, the lead track on the album that holds the same name of the CD, is described as “A smoldering, jazz-influenced love song with an everyman attitude, it shines a light on a different side of the artist, and country fans in general — one that likes a fine Cabernet as much as a cold beer, and indulges in sushi by candlelight as regularly as barbecue by the bonfire.”
“As a country singer, we sometimes get stereotyped as nothing but trucks and tailgates, but that doesn’t mean that’s all there is to us,” Morgan said on his website, summing up the album. “I want people to hear this record and go, ‘Wow, there is a whole lot more to these country folks.'”
