Country music entertainer and award-winning TV host Craig Morgan took a break from his busy schedule readying for the launch of his new album to visit a local school today. While at Dickson Middle School, an hour west of Nashville, Morgan donated 15 Dean acoustic guitars to the music program and talked with Mr. Elston’s 8th grade class about the importance of music. While there, the class got a brief guitar lesson from Morgan and even wrote a quick song together.
“Music has always been such an important part of my life,” says Morgan. “I’m happy to give back so that others can share in that experience.”
Craig Morgan is gearing up to launch a brand new album, THIS OLE BOY, in stores next Tuesday, February 28th. The lead single is currently in the 20s on the country charts.
