Nashville, TN — September 16, 2019 — Country music entertainer, TV host and Army veteran Craig Morgan is reuniting with BBR Music Group’s flagship label Broken Bow Records, his record label home for more than six years, on his first new music since 2016, the faith-filled tribute to his son Jerry — “The Father, My Son, And The Holy Ghost.” The emotional track, which has over xxx views and counting, made national news last week, hitting No. 1 on iTunes All Genres Top Songs chart in addition to the Top Country Songs chart. Longtime friend and fellow Opry member, Blake Shelton, kickstarted the ascent, launching an unprecedented twitter campaign in support of the song he says he would “gladly give up (his) spot on country radio for.” The viral push, led by Blake, gained support from several other artists and celebrities including Blanco Brown, Kelly Clarkson, Luke Combs, Carson Daly, Ellen DeGeneres, Charles Esten, Larry The Cable Guy, Angie Harmon, Gwen Stefani, Cole Swindell, The Today Show and more. The song is being sent to country radio today.
Craig was signed to BBR Music Group from 2002 to 2008 where he delivered signature songs including “Almost Home,” “International Harvester,” “Redneck Yacht Club,” “Tough” and the 4-week Billboard Hot Country Songs chart topper, “That’s What I Love About Sunday.”
“Craig Morgan and BBR made history together with ‘Almost Home’, notching the first Top 10 for both,” says Jon Loba, EVP BBR Music Group. “He is once again making his mark in music with the heartfelt song ‘The Father, My Son, and The Holy Ghost’ inspired by his late son Jerry. Our hearts are overflowing with joy that he has chosen to work with us once again as we welcome him home to the BBR/BMG family.”
“I am truly humbled by the response to the song so far and to my friend Blake Shelton for what he has done to honor Jerry,” says Craig. “It’s incredible to reunite with the team at Broken Bow to share this song with radio and my hope is, it will be a help to those who need it most.”
