Publisher's Summary

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 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.

Faith Family Freedom

This is amazing story of life and life lessons and over coming the greatest loss a parent can experience the loss of a child.

The story telling truly takes you that place wherever it was and the emotions tied to each story. You can here the emotions from Craig’s voice truly touching.

Thank you for your service. I am a proud supporter of our veterans and first responders as my dad was a WWII veteran.

I love this man!

I so enjoyed this. Craig's love of God, family, and country is so refreshing. His unashamed want and love to serve his country is so honorable. But, that voice ( when he sings) and the songs have made me a life time fan from the very beginning. Maybe, it's not the best narration that I have ever heard, but it is from his heart and think he's a wonderful human being.

Great book!

I enjoyed listening to the audio version of this book. I always find it interesting to learn about someone’s life. However I did find it confusing when Craig read the inserts for other people, such as his wife. It was hard to decider when their insert was finished and he resumed his own story, since it was all done in his voice. Otherwise it was a great book that kept me enchanted the whole time.

Great memoir!!

I have listened to a variety of memoirs and this is one of my favorites. Craig is very honest and open. The story of what he went through with the loss of his son, was gut wrenching, but beautifully told. The reason I bought this memoir was I had listened to his song "God, My Son and the Holy Ghost" which was beautifully written and performed. My ultimate takeaway was this man was a wonderful father who loves his country and family and the vulnerability he showed by writing this memoir is a true testament to his character. A life well lived, a brave soldier and and even braver family man. Just want to say thanks for sharing your story and the wonderful songs, that obviously come from your heart. Proud to say your an American, especially in the craziness of the way things are in our country.
