New album available to pre-order now at

Nashville, TN…(August 15, 2013)… Craig Morgan continues
to put his fans first in sharing his excitement over the new single
“Wake Up Lovin’ You” by releasing the brand new music video directly to
them via YouTube
yesterday.  The angst-ridden clip for the song is made all the more
intense due to a swollen eye the singer received after being stung by a
bee. Director Kristin Barlowe and Morgan quickly changed their shoot
strategy to mask the sting and, ironically, the injury adds to the raw
emotion of the song.

“Wake Up Lovin’ You” can be found on his upcoming CD, THE JOURNEY (LIVIN’ HITS), set for release on September 3. Fans may now PRE-ORDER limited edition packages exclusively from

July by revealing information about the project during a live Facebook
digital fan press conference.  Fans joining him on his page were the

participate in a live Q&A with Craig.

“I’m so excited about the new music,” shares Craig. “You can listen to
this record and join me on the journey from where I’ve been to where I’m
headed. I think we’ve put together a really great album with new music
that looks ahead to the future as well as some of the fan-favorite songs
that speak to who I am at my core and what my fans love in my live
