Ready to serve his country once again.

Craig Morgan spent 17 years in the Army and Army Reserve, serving the 101st and 82nd Airborne Divisions as an E-6 Staff Sergeant and Fire Support Specialist. Since then, he’s remained an avid supporter of all of our service members.

And now, he’s stepping up to serve alongside them once again.

Last night during an appearance at the Grand Ole Opry, Morgan was once again sworn into the U.S. Army Reserve, where he’ll be assigned to Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, Alabama as a Staff Sergeant and Warrant Officer candidate.

Morgan will continue to tour release new music while also serving our country.

Speaking on the opportunity to re-enlist, Craig said while he loves being a country artist, his greatest honor is serving with our men and women in uniform:

“I’m excited to once again serve my country and be all I can be in hopes of encouraging others to be a part of something greater than ourselves.

I love being an artist but I consider it a true privilege and honor to work with what I believe are the greatest of Americans, my fellow soldiers. God Bless America. Go Army.”

His swearing in was performed on the stage of the Opry by General Andrew Poppas, Commander of the U.S. Army Forces Command:

“No matter who you are or where you’re from, service in the United States Army is a unique, life-changing honor. Every Soldier who enters the Army has the opportunity to become the best version of themselves, and Staff Sgt. Morgan is no exception.

I look forward to seeing what he accomplishes and how he impacts other Soldiers around the Army.”

When he’s not serving in the Army, Craig will be on the road this fall for his God, Family, Country Tour, which kicks off September 30 in Englewood, New Jersey.

Congratulations Craig, and thank you for your service – both past and future.
