Craig Morgan shared his first new music in more than three years with the release of “The Father, My Son and the Holy Ghost” in August.
The new tune, which Craig penned and produced, honors his late son, Jerry Greer, who passed away after a boating accident in July 2016 at the age of 19.
After Blake Shelton spearheaded a successful viral campaign to get the new tune to No. 1 on the all-genre iTunes Songs chart on Sept. 12, “The Father, My Son & the Holy Ghost” will be released to country radio as an official single on Oct. 7 with major-label support from Broken Bow Records, Craig’s label home for six years in the 2000s.
“I am truly humbled by the response to the song so far and to my friend Blake Shelton for what he has done to honor Jerry,” says Craig. “It’s incredible to reunite with the team at Broken Bow to share this song with radio and my hope is, it will be a help to those who need it most.”
Craig was signed to BBR Music Group from 2002 to 2008 where he delivered signature songs, including “Almost Home,” “International Harvester,” “Redneck Yacht Club,” “Tough” and “That’s What I Love About Sunday.”
