Craig Morgan Has His Head Shaved for Charity
Craig Morgan is used to living with a buzz cut, but it has been years since the former Army Ranger was told to trim up. Last weekend, the 'Redneck Yacht Club' singer had a fan take a pair of clippers to his one time curly brown locks. Former NFL player Robb Nelson paid $1,200 for the right to give Morgan a high-and-tight do.
The money benefited Billy's Place, a home for temporarily displaced children in Morgan's hometown of Dickson, Tenn., just outside of Nashville. The two-day event also included Morgan's fifth annual charity motorcross ride, a concert and sporting clay shoot. A custom dirt bike was part of the auction, pulling in over $12,000 for the charity.
Billy's Place was started when Morgan was serving as Assistant Sheriff's Deputy in Dickson. The mission of the Craig Morgan Charity Fund is to build and maintain the home and to provide lasting funding to the home. His goal is to build additional Billy's Place homes across the country. The singer has raised over $50,000 towards this purpose in he last two years alone.
Musically, Morgan is working on a new album, which will feature the song 'This Ole' Boy.' He signed to Black River Music Entertainment earlier this year, after two years with Sony Music.
