Craig Morgan Announces Eleventh Overseas Tour for Troops
Morgan, a former soldier, will travel with Armed Forces Entertainment and Stars for Stripes to perform a series of acoustic shows in Southwest Asia this spring. He has a storied history with the Armed Forces, serving the U.S. with more than ten years of active duty in the Army, as well as another nine years of duty in the Army Reserves.
“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,” says Morgan. “I always jump at the chance to get over there and do my part.”
The 'Wake Up Lovin' You' singer made his first visit to entertain our soldiers in 2003, and this upcoming tour will mark his eleventh since 9/11. In addition to playing music for troops, Morgan also supports spouses and their families remaining stateside through Folds of Honor and Jack Daniel’s Toast To The Troops.
He's been recognized for his service with the 2006 USO Merit Award and the Humanitarian of the Year designation at the 2013 Golden Moose Awards. Fans can see Morgan and lots of other country stars play on 'ACM Presents: An All-Star Salute To The Troops' on May 20.
