After teaming up in 2016 to surprise a military family with a mortgage-free home, country music entertainer, award-winning TV host and Army veteran CRAIG MORGAN has been named 2017 Operation FINALLY HOME Ambassador. Operation FINALLY HOME, a national non-profit that provides mortgage-free homes to veterans and their families, will partner with Craig this year to provide homes from select dates during his 2017 tour.

Last night, Houston’s House of Blues hosted the kickoff of Operation FINALLY HOME Welcomes “American Stories Tour” with Craig Morgan and very special guests. Craig was joined onstage by THIRD DAY front man Mac Powell, songwriter/producer Phil O’Donnell (“Give It All We Got Tonight,” “Back When I Knew It All”), Sergeant First Class, Army/Retired and photographer Josh Ferguson and daughter Alexandra Beaird for the packed show. During the unscripted set, Morgan gave an impromptu performance of “Like An Old Tattoo,” a song he had just written with O’Donnell to honor Operation FINALLY HOME and to share his own memories of the true meaning of home. The chart-topping singer announced from the stage that he will reprise his intimate, immersive “American Stories” concert experience this fall with a series of dates from September through November. The shows celebrate American values through both music and storytelling. Guests and tour dates will be announced in the coming months.

Declared “a mature record that, while not afraid to have a little fun, values poignancy over pop country,” (Rolling Stone Country) Morgan’s newest album A Whole Lot More To Me is available now and the eighth season of his award-winning TV series Craig Morgan: All Access Outdoors will debut on Outdoor Channel this summer.
