Craig Morgan is gearing up to make yet another visit overseas as part of the Stars for Stripes tour where he will entertain the US troops fighting for our country. The tour, which is being called Not Alone, will take place from Jan. 27 through Feb. 3 and will consist of visits in both Iraq and Kuwait.
Morgan embarked on his first overseas visit in 2003. This upcoming tour will mark the singer's ninth visit overseas to entertain the troops since the tragedy of 9/11.
"In addition to showing our support for the service men and women deployed, I find a growing sense of pride in the good our country does while on these visits,” says Morgan. “We are not just fighting a war and helping people gain democracy and human rights in their own country, but our military is over there building hospitals and schools ... modern structures and plumbing that didn't exist before 9/11."
Morgan and his full band will perform five concerts at five camps throughout his visit, and he will also offer special acoustic sets at various remote bases for troops who seldom receive celebrity entertainment. He is also offering support to returning troops as a spokesperson for Not Alone, an organization that empowers and assists soldiers and their families who are dealing with the after-effects of combat as they transition back to life at home.
Morgan wrote the song 'Not Alone' in support of the organization, and it will also be included on his upcoming sixth studio album.
