An avid supporter of the U.S. Armed Forces, country star Craig Morgan spent 17 years serving our country in the Army and Army Reserves. Since 2002, Craig has been boosting military morale by regularly teaming up with the USO for tours that have entertained more that 37,000 service members and their families across 12 countries.
Craig recently completed his eighth USO Tour, a weeklong trip that made stops in Hawaii, Guam, Diego Garcia, Qatar, Italy and Afghanistan, as well as aboard the USS George H. W. Bush. Joining Craig on the tour were Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Paul J. Selva, UFC fighter Dominick Cruz, chef Robert Irvine, Olympic swimmer Katie Meili and entertainer Jim Karol.
“Having served, I know how important it is to feel the support from everyone back home, so I’m always up for the chance to spend time with our soldiers serving abroad,” Craig tells Nash Country Daily. “On this last USO Tour, we visited troops in six countries, and it’s always an honor getting to thank our troops in person for their service and sacrifice for our country.”
Craig will be playing a string of upcoming concert dates, and be sure to check out the eighth season of Craig’s award-winning television series, Craig Morgan: All Access Outdoors, on the Outdoor Channel this summer.
