Craig Morgan is set to make his eleventh overseas tour to entertain U.S. troops serving abroad. A former solider, Craig will travel with Armed Forces Entertainment and Stars For Stripes to perform a series of acoustic shows in Southwest Asia this spring.
“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,” Craig said. “I always jump at the chance to get over there and do my part.”
Craig made his first overseas visit in 2003. In addition to performing for troops abroad, Craig supports spouses and dependents who are stateside through Folds of Honor and Jack Daniel’s Toast To The Troops. He is a recipient of the 2006 USO Merit Award and earlier this year, received the Humanitarian of the Year designation at the 2013 Golden Moose Awards.
Fans will be able to catch Craig on ACM Presents: An All-Star Salute To The Troops which airs May 20 at 9/8c on CBS. His current single, “Wake Up Lovin’ You,” is at No. 16 and climbing on the country charts. The song is featured on Craig’s latest album, The Journey (Livin’ Hits).
