New music is here from Craig Morgan! The 58-year-old just dropped “How You Make a Man.” The song, written by Michael August, Megan Conner, and Skip Black, is the debut single from his forthcoming God, Family, Country (Deluxe Edition) album, scheduled to be released on November 11.
“This song makes a powerful statement about how you have to go through things, and sometimes experience difficult things in life, to become a better human,” Morgan says.
Morgan will share details of his life and career in his new memoir, God, Family, Country. The book, which will be released on September 27. covers Morgan’s early years, his time in the military, his music career, and the tragic loss of his son Jerry in a drowning accident in 2016.
“We would start talking about certain things that have happened in my life, and especially after the loss of our son, after Jerry died,” Morgan explains to People, “I’d meet people and they’d say, ‘I don’t understand how you have the attitude you have, after having lost your son.’
“I realized that I had such a love for God that I was able to do something with that,” he continues. “And I realized that, with so many people telling me, maybe God was trying to tell me something.”
Morgan will embark on his God, Family Country Tour on October 19 in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The Grand Ole Opry member will perform in 11 cities, wrapping up on November 11 with a special Veterans Day show, for his first headlining concert at the Ryman Auditorium,
“I feel like this tour has been a lifetime in the making,” Morgan says. “Musically and personally, God, family and country are the most important things to me and I’m excited to share this in my upcoming memoir and in my tour as me and the band play some fan favorite songs, some album cuts and some new songs you’ve not even heard yet.”
Ray Fulcher will serve as the opening act for all shows. Find all of Morgan’s music and tour dates by visiting his website.
