Country music icon, army veteran, father, outdoorsman—Craig Morgan shares all aspects of his life, revealing stories even his most avid fans don’t know. Written with Jim DeFelice, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller American Sniper In 1989, as US news outlets declared an end to Operation Just Cause, Craig Morgan was part of an elite group of military operatives jumping into the jungle along the Panamanian border on a covert operation. Fans know the country music star from his hit songs and acclaimed albums, but there’s a lot more to him—a soldier who worked with the CIA in Panama, an undercover agent who fought sex traffickers in Thailand, and a dedicated family man who lives the values he sings. Craig details these many facets of his life and more in God, Family, Country. An on-stage appearance with his father’s band at age ten may have planted the seeds for life as a country star, but first he trained as a paratrooper in the army. After earning numerous distinctions, his path to sergeant major was all but assured. Then came a momentous decision: he left the active military to pursue music. With unwavering support from his wife and a pack of part-time jobs, he toughed out the lean years and achieved his first big success with the poignant ballad “Almost Home.” Other hits soon followed, from party songs like “Redneck Yacht Club” to the soul-rending “The Father, My Son, and the Holy Ghost.” Born from the anguish of his son Jerry’s passing, the song’s tribute has consoled and inspired millions across the world. Duty to country has been a constant throughout his life and globe-spanning career. In 2006, as “That’s What I Love about Sunday” topped country radio charts, Craig was riding in a convoy of Humvees in Iraq. An avid outdoorsman, a former sheriff’s deputy who’s still a member of the auxiliary, and always a husband and father first, Craig Morgan will inspire you with his life lived by the deepest values: God, family, country.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“I met the man, Craig Morgan, in Utah and loved his music. The next time I saw him was in Panama as a fellow teammate on CBS’s Beyond the Edge. It’s there that I saw an American hero in action. After reading God, Family, Country, I know why he’s the confident, driven, humble, loyal, brave warrior that he is.” Mike Singletary, NFL Hall of Fame linebacker and former head coach
“God, Family, Country is more than a memoir. Craig has truly proven to be a lion who has more than nine lives. If you can only read one book this year, this should be it.” Robert Irvine, celebrity chef and talk show host
“Not since Unbroken has a book captured my attention like this. I truly could not put it down. Craig’s honesty and humility makes one realize that God, Family, and Country completely sums up his life. It is a must-read and it made me even prouder to call him friend.” Bill Engvall, actor, stand-up comedian, and member of the Blue Collar Comedy group
