There is no one like him. Craig Morgan's resume is one of the most varied and impressive on earth – TV host, outdoorsman, soldier, sheriff's deputy, EMT, adventurer, motocross racer, farmer, family man, and country music star.
All parts of his life come together on his television show, "Craig Morgan's All Access Outdoors," on Outdoor Channel. Having earned multiple nods at the Golden Moose Awards, the show is true to its name as Morgan throws open the doors on his life – both on stage and in the field. Whether he’s entertaining screaming fans at sold-out shows, motocross racing or bowhunting big game, his life is high-octane and his schedule is unrelenting. The hit reality show gives viewers an all access, backstage pass to Morgan’s travels as he and his crew pursue big thrills and big laughs across the globe in a quest for the ultimate adventure. Each week, he is joined by fellow country music artists, as well as some of his warrior buddies, and motocross celebrity friends.
"I’ve got a renewed energy and I do believe this next chapter in my life is going to be the best yet," says Morgan as he gears up for the seventh season of his award-winning show
Craig was born in tiny Kingston Springs, Tennessee, the son of a bass-playing father whose work gave him behind-the-scenes views of classic country stars like Vern Gosdin, George Jones and Tammy Wynette, among many others. At ten, he sang the national anthem during a school field trip to Nashville in front of a crowd that included Minnie Pearl--who told him, "Son, someday you're gonna be a famous singer."
An avid and lifelong outdoorsman, he began his career as an 18-year-old EMT. He then served ten years in the U.S. Army, where he traveled much of the world and took up performing and songwriting, winning military contests in both. He moved to Nashville after leaving the armed forces, and was employed as a contractor, a sheriff's deputy and a Wal-Mart assistant dairy manager as he pursued music. He was singing demos when he was signed to his first label deal, thereby launching his hit-filled career.
Craig performs frequently for military audiences, both here and abroad (he has earned the U.S.O Merit Award), and is a frequent guest at the Grand Ole Opry. In fact, the two came together when he was invited to join the hallowed institution in 2008 during an appearance at Ft. Bragg, one of the places he'd been stationed during his military career.
On the music front, his career continues to thrive as evidenced by his latest album, A Whole Lot More To Me, featuring the singles “I’ll Be Home Soon” and “When I’m Gone.”
"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," he says, summing up the album. "I want people to hear this record and go, 'Wow, there is a whole lot more to these country folks.'"
