After almost a year of intense focus in the studio, country music entertainer, military veteran and award-winning TV host CRAIG MORGAN is proud of the new collection, which he co-produced with Byron Gallimore (Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Lee Ann Womack).

Building on the proven hits "This Ole Boy," "Wake Up Lovin' You," "Bonfire," "International Harvester" and the six week #1, "That's What I Love About Sunday," the Black River Entertainment recording artist's music continues to evolve to new heights, working with GRAMMY® award winning producer Byron Gallimore for the first time, further defining the distinctly authentic Craig Morgan sound.

“I’ll Be Home Soon,” is an epic love song and one of many radio-ready hits on Morgan's highly anticipated project. He's written nearly half of the album's dozen tracks, and makes all of them his own. "I'm That Country" exudes Southern charm; "Remind Me Why I'm Crazy" showcases Morgan the crooner; "I Can't Wait to Stay" exults the joys of a small-town life; and "A Whole Lot More to Me" is a musical autobiography. The collection’s “When I’m Gone,” has already met critical acclaim with Music Row calling it a “powerhouse performance of a pile-driving song.” Each highlights his artistic renaissance. 

When I’m Gone” (RADIO EDIT; Black River Entertainment) was sent to country radio September 2, 2015 produced by Byron Gallimore & Craig Morgan. The single peaked at #48 on Bilboard Country Airplay



When I’m Gone” opens with driving production that isn’t too loud, sporting a drum beat, claps, and is that a hint of a banjo? The production sticks to the sound that Craig is known for, not traditional, but still very much modern country. This song celebrates life. The narrator
wants everyone to say that he lived life to the fullest, that he never backed down from anything, that he faced his fears, and lived exactly the way he wanted to, after he’s passed on. It’s an energetic song. You’d expect a stripped down ballad when you look at the story/theme of the song, but instead, Morgan gives a fresh, different spin on it. There’s no sadness here. No subdued atmosphere. When you’re listening to this song, you’re struck with the realization that this song really fits Craig Morgan well, as he lives his life fully and at high speed most of the time. Craig isn’t one to sit back and let time and life pass him by, and he certainly isn’t one who plays it safe…read more For The Country Record (Single Review)

Another standout on the project is “Hearts I Leave Behind,” which features Morgan’s gritty and poignant vocals with the soulful Christian rock band Third Day’s lead singer, Mac Powell.
The hard-touring artist has already been testing out the songs on the road, to stellar results. "When I'm Gone" becomes a call to action; "Country Side of Heaven" is an audience sing-along; and "Nowhere Without You," written by Michael McDonald, stands as an epic power ballad.

"I’ve got a renewed energy with this record," Morgan says emphatically. "In fact, I'm at the pinnacle of my career — producing, singing and touring. And this album epitomizes that. It's all about living to the fullest, and when people hear it, I know they'll relate it to their own lives."
