Craig Morgan has a heart of gold and a love of adventure. Combine the two and you get one of the most fun fundraisers in country music—the 8th Annual Craig Morgan Charity Event benefiting the Dickson County Craig Morgan Foundation, which assists foster children in Dickson County and Middle Tennessee.
The combination motocross exhibition, group trail ride and superstar concert took place Sunday, July 20, and in addition to Craig, fellow country stars Tracy Lawrence and Chuck Wicks and motocross athletes Fred Andrews, Randy Hawkins and Kevin Windham were on hand for the festivities.
Craig, Chuck and Tracy performed an acoustic show at the Dickson War Memorial lawn near Craig’s home in Dickson County, Tenn., where a live auction was also held that included a 2010 Kia Soul donated by Universal Kia and a FLY racing helmet hand-painted by Joshua Gray.
The event raised a whopping $60,000 and has become part of a trilogy of fundraising efforts that includes a 5K race held in March and a sporting clay event coming up in October.
And if that weren’t enough, Craig has a new single—“We’ll Come Back Around.” Be listening for it!
