BNA RECORDS/NASHVILLE artist CRAIG MORGAN has been invited to become the newest member of the GRAND OLE OPRY. The moment happened last night (9/19) during a special concert for the troops at Ft. BRAGG in FAYETTEVILLE, NC. The occasion was a homecoming for CRAIG, who was stationed at Ft. BRAGG from 1990-1992 during his ten-year tenure in the US ARMY’s 82nd AIRBORNE DIVISION.
MORGAN will be formally inducted into the OPRY on SATURDAY., OCT 25th. Last night OPRY member JOHN CONLEE walked on stage to surprise MORGAN while he was performing the classic that CONLEE made popular in 1978, “Rose Colored Glasses.
CONLEE said, “CRAIG, where are your rose colored glasses?" to which MORGAN shared he must have left them at home. Then CONLEE asked him if he knew where he was going to be on OCT. 25th and he replied “I don’t know.” “Well, I happen to know that you're going be on the OPRY,” said CONLEE. “How would you like to be the next member of the GRAND OLE OPRY?"."
