For Craig Morgan, The Country Music Journey wasn't one that started early in life. Born in Kingston Springs, Tennessee, Morgan began his work career at age 18 as an EMT. From there, he served our wonderful country for Ten years, further showing his dedication to his country. After serving in the United States Army, Morgan took on odd jobs that included: Wal Mart, County Sheriff, Construction Worker and whatever it took to put food on the table. In 2000, Morgan got a job singing demos for other record labels and publications. It was then that Morgan hit it big, releasing his first album, the self titled "Craig Morgan."

Since then, Morgan has released a number of hits, including "Redneck Yact Club", "International Harvester", and "That's what I love about Sunday." His most recent album has produced singles "Love Remembers" and "Bonfire."

Now in his fourties, Craig Morgan has become a fan favorite. Like many artists though, it didn't start that way. A rough road finally got smoother when Morgan gave his demo tape to a horse training friend, who boarded a record company employee's horse.

"I dropped off a tape to a friend of mine who trains horses who gave it to
someone from the record label who boarded his horse there. He listened to my
tape and called me."

Thank goodness for that horse trainer. Thank Goodness.

(Currently Craig Morgan is on the International Harvester Tour, that gets back underway in the upcoming week. You can follow Morgan on twitter, by clicking here. To view more interesting facts about Craig Morgan as well, check out this website.)
