Craig Morgan (born Craig Morgan Greer, July 17, 1964) is an American country music artist from Kingston Springs, Tennessee. A veteran of the United States Army, Morgan began his musical career in 2000 on Atlantic Records, releasing his self-titled debut album for that label before the closure of its Nashville division in 2000.

He signed to the independent Broken Bow Records and released three studio albums, 2003’s “I Love It,” 2005’s “My Kind of Livin'” and 2006’s “Little Bit of Life.” He also released a greatest hits album in 2007 on Broken Bow before leaving the label. “My Kind of Livin'” is his best-selling and highest-charting album, having peaked at #7 on Top Country Albums and having been certified gold by the RIAA. In 2008, he signed to BNA Records and released “That's Why,” which was re-issued in 2009 with three different tracks.

Morgan's five studio albums have accounted for 17 singles on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart. His highest-peaking single, “That's What I Love About Sunday,” and only #1 hit of his career, was the first #1 for the Broken Bow label, and the #1 country music single of 2005 on the Billboard Year-End charts.

Six more of his singles have reached Top 10 on the country singles charts as well, “Almost Home,” “Redneck Yacht Club” (certified gold by the RIAA), “Little Bit of Life,” “International Harvester,” “Love Remembers” and “Bonfire.” He signed with Black River Music Group in 2011 and released “This Ole Boy” in 2012.
