More Than $73,000 Raised For Foster Children Over Two-Day Event


Nashville, TN…(August 15, 2012)…Country Music superstar and award winning television host Craig Morgan
is thrilled with the results of his 6th annual Charity Motocross Ride,
Concert and Sporting Clay Shoot.  The two-day’s events and auction
raised more than $73,000, bringing the four-year total to $250,000.

Proceeds from the weekend will benefit the Craig Morgan Charity Fund, a
component fund of The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee.   The
Craig Morgan Charity Fund continues to raise funds to benefit foster
children in Dickson County and throughout Middle Tennessee.  The
ultimate charitable goal for Craig is to establish Billy’s Place, a
welcoming home for temporarily displaced children.

“Year-after-year I am blown away by the support for this event from our
celebrity friends and the Dickson and Middle Tennessee communities,”
says Morgan.  “I am so proud of the amount of money raised to help the
children and families in this area and am already looking forward to our
7th annual event next summer.”

Motocross stars Destry Abbott, Fred Andrews, Cowboy Kenny Bartram, Randy
Hawkins, Kevin Windham, and country star Bucky Covington thrilled
spectators with the exhibition and trail ride in Vanleer, Tennessee.
Later that evening, country music star Darryl Worley and HLN “Morning
Express” host and “Brand New Day” singer Robin Meade along with the
evening’s emcee, GAC host and TV personality Nan Kelley, performed for a
packed house alongside Morgan to support the Craig Morgan Charity Fund.
 The evening’s silent auction was a huge success as a hunting trip with
Morgan went for over $6,000.00!

On day two of the festivities, “The Ultimate Shooter” Tim Bradley showed
of his skills a part of the popular Celebrity Sporting Clays Event.

As Morgan wraps this year’s charity weekend and begins planning for next
year, he is also excited about his new single “More Trucks Than Cars”
which was released this week by Black River Entertainment.  Written by
Morgan with Phil O’Donnell and Craig Wiseman, the song is featured on
his current album THIS OLE BOY, available now everywhere music is sold.

Morgan can also be seen in the third season of his Outdoor Channel
series, “Craig Morgan All Access Outdoors,” with episodes airing Sunday
night throughout the year.

One of country music’s best-loved artists, Craig Morgan has made a name
for himself with massive radio airplay of his signature hits:
 “Bonfire,” “Almost Home,” “Redneck Yacht Club,” “That’s What I Love
About Sunday,” “International Harvester” and his latest hit, the title
track to his new record This Ole Boy. The new album, his first release
on Black River Entertainment, boasted a Top 5 debut on Billboard’s Top
Country Albums chart when it released on February 28, 2012. Craig
received one of country music’s highest honors when he was inducted as a
member of the Grand Ole Opry in 2008. Prior to becoming a country music
and TV sensation, Craig Morgan spent over 10 years of active duty in
the Army and an additional nine years in the Army Reserves.  He is an
avid supporter of America’s military personnel and a recipient of the
2006 USO Merit Award. In addition to a prolific country music career, he
hosts the award-winning show “Craig Morgan: All Access Outdoors,”
currently in its third season on Outdoor Channel. For more information

The idea for Billy’s Place was born while Craig Morgan was serving as an
Assistant Sheriff’s Deputy in Dickson, TN and named for his wife
Karen’s father. The organization will support foster children in Dickson
County and throughout Middle Tennessee. Craig’s continuing charitable
mission is to eventually build and maintain a home called Billy’s Place
for temporarily displaced children in Dickson County Tennessee and to
provide lasting funding for the home. His long-term goal is to start
additional Billy’s Place homes around the country. The annual Craig
Morgan Charity Weekend, encompassing a motocross ride, concert and
sporting clays shoot, raised $250,000 the last four years in support of
Billy’s Place and other children’s welfare organizations.
