Singer/songwriter Craig Morgan was an army brat before he opted for a career in music. Born and raised in Nashville, Morgan was already a country music fan with dreams of playing guitar and making it big.
But before his musical dreams could become reality, Morgan spent time serving in the U.S. Army, where he had a very respectable career and achieved high honors during peace and wartime. It was also during this time that Morgan whetted his guitar-playing styles to perform for troops whenever he could. Such passion led to a deal with Atlantic after he left the service, and his self-titled debut was released on the label in May 2000. His next three albums, 2002's I Love It, 2005's My Kind of Livin', and 2006's Little Bit of Life, all appeared on Broken Bow Records. Morgan's 2008 album, That's Why, was his last for a major label; it had two Top Ten Country Airplay hits in "Love Remembers" and "Bonfire." After that record, he departed for Black River Entertainment, resurfacing on the indie label in 2012 with This Ole Boy. A re-recorded selection of greatest hits called The Journey (Livin' Hits) arrived in 2013, and then in 2016 he released the full-length A Whole Lot More to Me. ~ MacKenzie Wilson, Rovi
