Big Kenny Alphin is joining forces with Sheryl Crow, Kathy Mattea and Emmylou Harris to launch a new campaign, Music Saves Mountains, to halt mountaintop removal coal mining in Tennessee and across Appalachia. The musicians are urging people to contact Tennessee Governor Phil Bredesen and encourage him to support the Tennessee Scenic Vistas Protection Act which would prohibit mountaintop coal mining within 100 feet of streams and rivers. The act would also protect mountains over 2,000 feet high in Tennessee. “This campaign was founded out of the respect musicians — and especially people from Appalachia — have for our beloved mountains,” Alphin said.

Now, Morgan has teamed with the US military on a special audio message for Easter. By utilizing his latest single, “God Must Really Love Me,” several members of the military will be sending Easter greetings to their families and friends at home. The song, with its positive message of thanks, will serve as an audio backdrop for the Easter greetings. Morgan was honored with the 2006 USO Merit Award for his work with the military, joining the likes of Steven Spielberg, Elizabeth Taylor, and Bob Hope as a recipient.
