DEADWOOD, S.D. (03/03/16) – Craig Morgan's resume is one of the most varied and impressive on earth--soldier, sheriff's deputy, EMT, adventurer, TV host, motocross racer, outdoorsman, farmer and family man. And the man who can do it all will bring his massive amounts of country hits to the Deadwood Mountain Grand stage on Thursday, July 14 at 8pm.
"Music is like a center for all those things," says the man known as one of country's best singers and songwriters since "Almost Home" put him on the map in 2002. "It's the outlet for me to express everything I am. When I'm riding my dirt bike, you may not know about my music, and when I'm in a military environment, it's not the center point. But my music career allows me to talk about and be a part of all of those other energies in my life. When I'm on stage, I get to express all of it." An avid and lifelong outdoorsman, he began his career as an 18-year-old EMT. He then served ten years in the U.S. Army, where he traveled much of the world and took up performing and songwriting, winning military contests in both. He moved to Nashville after leaving the armed forces, and was employed as a contractor, a sheriff's deputy and a Wal-Mart assistant dairy manager as he pursued music. He was singing demos when he was signed to his first label deal, thereby launching his hit-filled career. “This guy is good,” said Deadwood Mountain Grand Resort Manager Susan Kightlinger. “Plus he’s a great guy, the crowd loves him and he puts on one of the best shows you’ll see live” Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, March 18.
