Whenever I get one of these press releases about an artist I really like, and the first thing I look for is something like the word ‘Wal-Mart”. Of course my first thought is ‘hey, we got a Wal-Mart!” Unfortunately, my Wal-Mart is not one that Craig Morgan will be visiting next week. If your Wal-Mart is, you are going to want to be there to get Craig to autograph his great new album, “This Ole’ Boy.” Now here’s the press release about Craig’s new album, and his live and televised performances coming up next week.
Country music entertainer and award-winning TV host Craig Morgan is putting the finishing touches on a busy week of live performances, autograph sessions and national TV appearances in support of his upcoming CD, This Ole Boy.
Prior to his new record releasing on Feb 28, 2012, Morgan will start the week on Monday with a live Facebook chat with CMT. That same night he’ll entertain his hometown crowd with a rare appearance in Dickson, Tennessee. Morgan will sign copies of his soon-to-be-released album and perform an acoustic set previewing tracks from the new record for the Middle Tennessee crowd. Fans from Dickson to Duluth and Dublin to Dubai can stream Morgan’s live performance via STAGEIT. A limited number of tickets to the live webcast can be purchased HERE.
