Country music entertainer, military veteran, award-winning TV host and philanthropist Craig Morgan hosted his ninth annual charity event over the weekend, with proceeds benefiting the Dickson County Craig Morgan Foundation. The festivities kicked off Saturday (October 17) with a golf tournament at Greystone Gold Course, with Halfway to Hazard’s David Tolliver and former Buffalo Bills defensive end Chris Kelsay hitting the green with Morgan. Singers Casi Joy, Janelle Arthur, Adam Sanders and Halfway to Hazard played the family-friendly festival before Craig played a 70-minute full-band set for the crowd at Dickson’s War Memorial Lawn. During his set, Craig recognized the Child Advocacy Center’s Kris Blount with a $5,000 donation to support their work, serving at risk, abused and neglected children and their families.
All proceeds from Craig Morgan’s golf tournament and festival benefit the Dickson County Craig Morgan Foundation, supporting foster children in Dickson County and throughout Middle Tennessee. The organization’s primary goal is to assist foster children in Dickson County and throughout Middle Tennessee and the charity is working to establish Billy’s Place in Dickson County, Tennessee for temporarily displaced children in Tennessee’s 23rd District.
The Black River Entertainment recording artist recently released brand new music, “When I’m Gone,” to country radio. The single is available at iTunes and all other digital retailers and receiving rave reviews from veteran industry critics, with Taste Of Country declaring: “Craig Morgan’s end of life song is a country locomotive…it’s a powerful statement that isn’t capable of passing softly.”
