craig morgan

Craig Morgan gives a lot to his fans and his community, but he’s about to give even more when he hosts the FREE Craig Morgan…And A Whole Lot More concert to celebrate the release of his upcoming album, A Whole Lot More To Me. Presented by Kidde Fire Safety, LINE-X and NRA Country, the concert will be held Wednesday, June 8 at Nashville’s Wildhorse Saloon.

Country music fans in town for the CMT Awards and CMA Music Festival will be treated to a free, full-band concert from Morgan along with performances from special guests Lindsay Ell, Jillian Cardarelli, Adam Sanders and Hailey Whitters. Third Day front man Mac Powell, who duets with the country star on “Hearts I Leave Behind” from Morgan’s upcoming CD, will also appear along with other surprise guests!

“What better way to celebrate the release of my new CD and give back to the fans than a free concert with a whole bunch of my friends,” says Morgan.

Craig Morgan…and a Whole Lot More at Nashville’s Wildhorse Saloon will start at 6pm and continue to midnight. The show is free and open to the public and autographed copies of Morgan’s new CD, A Whole Lot More To Me, will be available for purchase at the show.

Late last month, the Black River Entertainment recording artist announced the June 3 release of his seventh studio album, A Whole Lot More To Me. The project, co-produced by Craig and Byron Gallimore (Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Lee Ann Womack), includes “When I’m Gone,” “I’ll Be Home Soon” and the Mac Powell duet, “Hearts I Leave Behind.” Craig co-wrote nearly half of the album’s tracks with some of Music City’s hottest writers like Josh Osborne, Kevin Denney, Jim McBride and Phil O’Donnell.

Craig Morgan Readies New Album for June 3rd Release

craig morgan

Craig Morgan’s revealing new studio album, aptly titled, A Whole Lot More to Me, is set for release on Black River Entertainment on June 3rd but eager fans can pre-order the new music now!

After almost a year of intense focus in the studio, country music entertainer, military veteran and award-winning TV host CRAIG MORGAN is proud of the new collection, which he co-produced with Byron Gallimore (Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Lee Ann Womack).

Building on the proven hits “This Ole Boy,” “Wake Up Lovin’ You,” “Bonfire,” “International Harvester” and the six week #1, “That’s What I Love About Sunday,” the Black River Entertainment recording artist’s music continues to evolve to new heights, working with GRAMMY® award winning producer Byron Gallimore for the first time, further defining the distinctly authentic Craig Morgan sound.

“I’ll Be Home Soon,” is an epic love song and one of many radio-ready hits on Morgan’s highly anticipated project. He’s written nearly half of the album’s dozen tracks, and makes all of them his own. “I’m That Country” exudes Southern charm; “Remind Me Why I’m Crazy” showcases Morgan the crooner; “I Can’t Wait to Stay” exults the joys of a small-town life; and “A Whole Lot More to Me” is a musical autobiography. The collection’s “When I’m Gone,” has already met critical acclaim with Music Row calling it a “powerhouse performance of a pile-driving song.” Each highlights his artistic renaissance.

Another standout on the project is “Hearts I Leave Behind,” which features Morgan’s gritty and poignant vocals with the soulful Christian rock band Third Day’s lead singer, Mac Powell.

The hard-touring artist has already been testing out the songs on the road, to stellar results. “When I’m Gone” becomes a call to action; “Country Side of Heaven” is an audience sing-along; and “Nowhere Without You,” written by Michael McDonald, stands as an epic power ballad.

“I’ve got a renewed energy with this record,” Morgan says emphatically. “In fact, I’m at the pinnacle of my career — producing, singing and touring. And this album epitomizes that. It’s all about living to the fullest, and when people hear it, I know they’ll relate it to their own lives.”
