Country music star Craig Morgan surprised a sold-out audience at the Grand Ole Opry by enlisting and being sworn into the U.S. Army Reserve during a live show on Saturday, July 29.
“I’m excited to once again serve my country and be all I can be in hopes of encouraging others to be a part of something greater than ourselves,” said Morgan. “I love being an artist, but I consider it a true privilege and honor to work with what I believe are the greatest of Americans, my fellow Soldiers. God Bless America. Go Army.”
The Army veteran previously served 17 years in the Army and Army Reserve with the 101st and 82nd Airborne Divisions as a Staff Sergeant and Fire Support Specialist. He is now returning to serve his country as a Soldier in the Army Reserve.
The newly sworn-in Staff Sergeant and potential Warrant Officer candidate will continue touring and releasing new music in his civilian career while simultaneously serving in the Army Reserve.
A recipient of the U.S. Army’s Outstanding Civilian Service Medal and the USO Merit Award, as well as a member of the U.S. Field Artillery Hall of Fame, Morgan will be assigned to Redstone Arsenal in Alabama.
