Morgan goes to the dogs (in race)

Thursday, February 28, 2013 – Craig Morgan will travel to Sweden in April to participate in the sixth annual Fjallraven Polar, a 200-mile dog sled excursion above the Arctic Circle.

The 5-day adventure, hosted by Swedish outdoor brand, Fjallraven, will take place April 9-13. Morgan will be among 20 people from 10 countries who will participate in this year's expedition.

"We are committed to inspiring people to get outdoors and enjoy nature whether it be a short hike or a full on expedition like the Polar. We are excited to have Craig on board this year," said John Walbrecht, Fjallraven President. "An avid outdoorsman and U.S. military veteran, Craig will help demonstrate that almost anyone can enjoy the adventure of a lifetime - as long as they have the right support and equipment."

"Everyone would agree I have been a daredevil all my life. I love to travel to new places and will try just about anything, so when Fjallraven invited me to join them for the Polar, I said 'yes' without giving it a second thought" said Morgan.

The trip will journey from the vast Norwegian shores of the Arctic Ocean (Signaldalen, Norway) to the mountaintops of Sweden (Jukkasjarvi, Swedish Lapland) pulled by huskies. With the help of Fjallraven experts, Morgan will learn how to drive and care for his own team of dogs and to pitch a tent and survive in the snow and sub-zero temperatures.

Morgan will visit the Sami people, the indigenous people of Sweden. He's growing a full beard to protect his face during the expedition.

Morgan stars in his own TV show, Craig Morgan All Access Outdoors on the Outdoor Channel. In the show's upcoming fourth season, he will chronicle his adventures on the 200-mile Fjallraven Polar excursion. More Trucks Than Cars, the latest song from his current CD, "This Ole Boy," is on the country radio charts.

God, Family, Country CD review - God, Family, Country
Craig Morgan clearly loves his country and his country music - he now has 20 years of recording cred. It's been a career for the Tennessean that's gone a bit up/down/sideways. Morgan's biggest hits of "That's What I Love About Sunday (a re-recording appears on this collection) and "Redneck Yacht Club" are well in the rear view. But he's still a Grand Ole Opry member and signed with a new label in 2019. What's intriguing about this collection »»»
