Craig Morgan Enlists Famous Friends to Help With ‘When I’m Gone’ Selfie Video
Craig Morgan asked nearly two dozen country stars and athletes to sing his new song "When I'm Gone" selfie style, and they delivered. Watch as singers like Dustin Lynch, Charlie Daniels, Thompson Square, Tracy Lawrence and Gary LeVox push record on their phones and belt out the moving lyrics to Morgan's newest hit.
The mashup lightens an important message, but doesn't blunt the song's impact. Artists like Neal McCoy and Colt Ford seem to truly fall into the lyrics. Mixed Martial Arts fighters Randy Couture and Tim Sylvia also turn up, as does comedian Bill Engval and former NFL player Chris Kelsay. Troy Gentry, Billy Dean and songwriter Shane Minor also appear. Morgan's voice is heard over top of all the other singers.
Morgan's upcoming seventh studio album will be released in 2016. He's written about half of the 12 songs. Byron Gallimore produced the project, which is Morgan's second studio album of all new material on Black River Entertainment.
"I’ve got a renewed energy with this record," Morgan shares. "In fact, I'm at the pinnacle of my career — producing, singing and touring. And this song epitomizes that. It's about living to the fullest, and when people hear it, I know they'll relate it to their own lives."
