Craig Morgan inducted into US Field Artillery Hall of Fame

Morgan is one of 11 inducted

Country music entertainer and 17-year Army and Army Reserves veteran Craig Morgan was inducted into the US Field Artillery Hall of Fame last night (Wed, May 18th), recognizing a wide array of Field Artillery men and women who have contributed greatly to the branch. The United States Field Artillery Association [USFAA] class of 2022 included 33 past honorees of the USFAA Music Tattoo and four living Medal of Honor Awardees who served in the Field Artillery. In addition to those 37 individuals, eleven additional inductees were chosen for this new distinction. The ceremony took place at Fort Sill, Oklahoma, where Morgan was previously stationed during his military service.

The US Field Artillery Hall of Fame will be housed on Fort Sill, serving as an inspiration to many generations of Soldiers and Marines in the future.

The Grand Ole Opry member remains an avid supporter of America’s military personnel and has made 16 overseas trips to perform for our troops. He is a recipient of the USO Merit Award. In 2018 was awarded the Army’s Outstanding Civilian Service Medal, one of the highest awards the Department of the Army can bestow upon a civilian, in recognition of his significant dedication to our military men and women around the world.

This year, Morgan put his survival skills learned in the military to work in the new TV series, Beyond The Edge at CBS and Paramount+. Nine celebrities lived in the dangerous jungles of Panama, where they faced off in epic adventures and endured the most brutal conditions to raise money for their chosen charities. Morgan competed for Operation Finally Home, which provides mortgage-free homes and home modifications to wounded, ill and injured military veterans, first responders, and their families in honor of their service and sacrifice to our country and community.

This fall, Morgan will release his gripping new memoir — God, Family, Country — in partnership with Blackstone Publishing. He details all aspects from his inspiring life, revealing never-before-heard stories including how he worked alongside the CIA as a soldier in Panama, fought sex traffickers as an undercover agent in Thailand, forged his own path to country music stardom, and lives his life by the deepest values: God, family, country.

In October, he’ll launch his headlining Operation Finally Home Welcomes God, Family, Country Tour 2022 with Craig Morgan this fall, including a very special Veterans Day Show on November 11th at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium.

A multi-faceted entertainer, Morgan has made a name for himself as a country music icon, TV personality, celebrated outdoorsman and patriotic Army veteran. One of country music’s best-loved artists, Morgan has charted 25 songs on Billboard and thrills massive crowds with signature hits including “Bonfire,” “Almost Home,” “Redneck Yacht Club,” “International Harvester,” “This Ole Boy,” “Soldier,” “Wake Up Loving You,” “That’s What I Love About Sunday” and his faith-filled tribute to his son Jerry, “The Father, My Son and The Holy Ghost.”
