Craig Morgan Celebrates 10th Opry Anniversary
Craig Morgan celebrated his 10th Anniversary as a Grand Ole Opry member with an appearance on the Opry on Oct. 16 at the Grand Ole Opry House performing some of his biggest hits including “Redneck Yacht Club,” “That’s What I Love About Sunday,” and a new song “Whiskey,” among others.
Morgan was inducted into the Opry family on Oct. 25, 2008 by Opry member John Conlee. Morgan was invited by Conlee to become an Opry member during a special concert for U.S. troops at Fort Bragg in Fayetteville, North Carolina on Sept. 18, 2008. That evening was a homecoming of sorts for the singer, who was stationed at Ft. Bragg from 1990 to 1992 during his ten-year active duty tenure in the US Army’s 82nd Airborne Division.
