Featuring Collaborations With Trace Adkins, Luke Combs, Gary LeVox, Jelly Roll, Blake Shelton And Lainey Wilson
In late July of this year, country music hitmaker, author and patriot Craig Morgan answered the call from the Army Reserve on the stage of the iconic Grand Ole Opry in Nashville and re-enlisted – watch the video here. The longtime Opry member, who will celebrate his 15th year as a member next week, previously served with the US Army’s 101st and 82nd Airborne Divisions, was making a commitment to attain 20 years of service.
Just as the Army has called on Morgan, the Tennessee native has called on some of his talented friends to contribute to his latest project, available now. Appropriately titled Enlisted (released via Broken Bow Records), the six-track release offers new takes on four of his biggest hits along with two new tracks, and includes appearances by an all-star group of performers including Trace Adkins, Luke Combs, Gary LeVox, Jelly Roll, Blake Shelton, and Lainey Wilson.
Enlisted is available to stream/download worldwide here.

Opening the EP is the working-class anthem, “Raise The Bar”, one of the EP’s two brand-new songs, which Craig sings with friend and neighbour, Luke Combs. MusicRow Magazine raves, “[Combs] is as rousing and raucous as peerless country singer Morgan is on ‘Raise the Bar’ … lots and lots of fun”.
To celebrate the new release and his 15 years of membership in the Opry, Morgan will take to the iconic stage on October 25th to perform songs from the project, along with Adkins and members of the United States Army Field Band, Six-String Soldiers. He’ll also play the final two weekends of his popular “God, Family, Country Tour 2023,” in partnership with Operation Finally Home.
Morgan’s 2023 headlining tour follows last Autumn’s release of his personal memoir, God, Family, Country, which he wrote with Jim DeFelice, #1 New York Times bestselling co-author of American Sniper. The book chronicles Morgan’s road to success, from his humble childhood in Tennessee to his years as an elite military operative to his country music stardom. Country music fans and thrill seekers alike will love this intimate look at his remarkable life. Learn more HERE.
Morgan previously served seventeen years in the Army and Army Reserve with the 101st and 82nd Airborne Divisions as an E-6 Staff Sergeant and Fire Support Specialist and including Airborne, Air Assault Jumpmaster and Rappel Master among his certifications. He is now returning to serve his country in a new way – as a soldier in the Army Reserve. The newly sworn in Staff Sergeant and Warrant Officer candidate will continue touring and releasing new music in his civilian career while simultaneously serving his country in the Army Reserve.
