When he is not performing, Craig Morgan loves grilling for his wife and four kids at home in Dickson, Tenn., where the grilling aficionado fires it up about 3 times a week.
In '07 Craig was awarded the USO Merit Award for his dedication to the troops and still performs for them every chance he gets.
