NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Thursday, Dec. 5, 2013) –
Grand Ole Opry member and country music super star Craig Morgan
recently returned to the Opry stage to perform and celebrate his fifth
year, and counting, as a member of country music’s most honored family.
Vice President and General Manager Pete Fisher presented the Opry
member with a commemorative print marking the five-year mark and said,
“Opry members are the heart and soul of the Grand Ole Opry. 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.”
accepting the print, Craig 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.
