The new year is here and country artists are gearing up for big things.
One artist, Craig Morgan, has been around for a decade now.
Craig has been out on the road that entire time. He’s been releasing some huge hits to radio. He’s also been the host of a successful television show that’s still going on today.
2012 looks to be another busy year for Craig Morgan.
Craig Morgan 2012
First up for Craig in 2012 is to keep on climbing with his current single. The song is hot on the charts and already in the top 30, which is great considering it was released under a new independent label.
Also on tap for 2012 is a new album, tour and more television.
Craig Morgan isn’t slowing down now and it looks like he’s working as hard as ever.
This Ole Boy Song
This Ole Boy is already in the top 30 on the country singles charts. The song is fun, catchy and sure to continue climbing up the charts.
Craig has released numerous songs over the last ten years. There have been some love ballads, some fun songs. I think This Ole Boy fits in as a mixture of fun and romantic. The song is about a guy that’s enjoying the simple life of love and the country life.
Guys are pretty simple. There aren’t too many layers with us. We want to have a good woman to love. We want to have a truck and a few toys for messing around outside. That’s about it. We’re good ole boys with simple dreams and passion for enjoying life.
That’s what this song is about and I think it’s the simplicity of the message that allows it to connect with so many country fans.
There is also the fact that This Ole Boy has a great melody. I sing along with this record each time it comes on the radio and I’m starting to hear it more and more as the weeks pass.
Craig did a great job finding this record.
This Ole Boy Album
This Ole Boy, the album, will be released in late in February 2012.
The album takes its name from the title track and lead single. By the time the album hits shelves the single should be up around the top ten. From there I’d expect a second single to be released. I’m sure the record will have about ten other great songs fans will be sure to love.
It’s been four years since Craig had a set of new music out to his fans. Since that time he’s released a couple singles, been busy out on the road and has even come to fame on The Outdoor Channel with his TV show.
It will be nice to have some new music from this great country talent.
Tour Dates and Fairs
There are a few dates on Craig Morgan’s tour schedule for 2012. There are dates all the way through May right now. It appears like Craig will be making the rounds at the usual places including Nashville and a few private dates.
This is the typical schedule for most stars like Craig in the springtime. It’s a little warm up before hitting the circuit out to the fairs and festivals in the summertime. I’m sure Craig is one of the artists that always looks forward to getting in front of the big crowds at those country fests.
There is nothing better for fans either. You can settle in for a few days and see nothing but the best country music artists.
Are you seeing Craig this year?
All Access Outdoors: Craig Morgan
One of Craig’s biggest accomplishments of the last couple years has been his show on The Outdoor Channel. The show, All Access Outdoors: Craig Morgan, has been a huge hit with television viewers.
The show has been on for a few seasons. The cameras follow Craig through his daily life out on the road, in the studio and out in the woods. Lots of country artists love hunting and fishing so it makes sense to send a camera out there with them to capture a few behind the scenes moments.
Being a hunter myself, I love seeing one of my favorite country stars out there enjoying the same activities.
Bonus: The Videos
This is where I usually post the latest video from the artist.
But I had to do something else for Craig’s latest video This Ole Boy. I was watching the video and realized that the setting looked very familiar. I’m still not sure if the setting is the same or not.
Here are the videos for Craig’s This Ole Boy and Kevin Fowler’s That Girl.
Check them both out and let me know if you think they were filmed at the same location.
