Grand Ole Opry member and Country music singer Craig Morgan recently returned to the Opry stage to perform and to celebrate five years as an Opry member.

Opry Vice President and General Manager Pete Fisher presented Morgan with a print commemorating the five-year mark. “Opry members are the heart and soul of the Grand Ole Opry,” said Fisher. “They are the reason we have been around for 88 years and are the world’s longest running live radio show. During this Thanksgiving week, we thought it be appropriate to thank Craig Morgan for five incredible years as a member and you are going to be around for several decades more I think. We’ll be doing this a lot more so let’s thank Craig Morgan for five years.”

Morgan shared, “I wore them out when I first started as a singer. For me there’s no greater honor that can be bestowed on a country singer aside from being a member of this great foundation. I’m so proud and honored to be here tonight.”

Craig was inducted as an Opry member in October 2008 by Opry member, John Conlee.
