Not alone, Craig Morgan plays for U.S. troops

Tuesday, January 18, 2011 – Craig Morgan will make his ninth visit to entertain U.S. troops stationed overseas as part of the Stars For Stripes tour. Morgan will embark on the "Not Alone" tour, performing for service members stationed in Iraq and Kuwait, from Jan. 27 through Feb. 3 with his full band.

"In addition to showing our support for the service men and women deployed, I find a growing sense of pride in the good our country does while on these visits," said Morgan. "We are not just fighting a war and helping people gain democracy and human rights in their own country, but our military is over there building hospitals and schools...modern structures and plumbing that didn't exist before 9/11."

In 2003 Morgan made his first overseas visit to entertain U.S. troops.

Morgan will do five concerts at different locations and special acoustic sets at various remote FOBs (Forward Operating Base) for troops who seldom receive celebrity entertainment.

Morgan is offering support to returning troops as a spokesperson for Not Alone, an organization that empowers and assists soldiers and their families who are dealing with the after-effects of combat as they transition back to life at home. Morgan wrote the song Not Alone in support of the organization, and it will also be included on his upcoming sixth studio album.

But he's still a Grand Ole Opry member and signed with a new label in 2019. What's intriguing about this collection »»»
