After the CMT Awards closed their show last night (June 8), Craig Morgan and a few of his friends—including Eric Paslay, Kane Brown and Mac Powell—headed down the street to Wildhorse Saloon to celebrate the release of Craig’s new album, A Whole Lot More to Me.
Craig delighted the packed house with many of his standards, including “International Harvester,” “This Old Boy” and “Almost Home,” a tune that Kane Brown joined him onstage to sing. Singer/songwriter Eric Paslay joined Craig to harmonize on “Country Side of Heaven,” a song from the new album that Eric co-wrote, while Mac Powell lent his vocals to “Hearts I Leave Behind,” a song from the new record that features Mac.
Craig, who spent 10 years on active duty in the U.S. Army, treated servicemen and veterans in attendance to free beer, handing out bottles from the stage, before he crooned a cover of Gavin DeGraw’s “Soldier.”
Check out a video of “Soldier” below.
