Country music hit-maker, author and patriot Craig Morgan was joined by fellow Grand Ole Opry member and multi-platinum entertainer Trace Adkins to perform “That Ain’t Gonna Be Me” on Fox & Friends on November 16. Watch the riveting live moment as the two took the historic stage at the Grand Ole Opry HERE. The collaboration, which shot to the top of the iTunes Country Charts following the performance, can be found on Morgan’s recently released Enlisted EP.
“For me, it’s about God and family and country,” Morgan says of the stately anthem. “I am so blessed, and I recognize the enormous blessings of the freedoms we celebrate in this nation.”
In late July of this year, Morgan answered the call from the Army Reserve on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry and re-enlisted. Morgan previously served with the Army’s 101st and 82nd Airborne Divisions and was making a commitment to attain 20 years of service.
Just as the Army has called on Morgan, the Tennessee native has recruited some of his talented friends to contribute to his latest project, available now. Appropriately titled Enlisted (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.
