Morgan recruited several of his famous friends — Trace Adkins,Luke Combs,Gary LeVox, Jelly Roll, Blake Shelton, and Lainey Wilson — for the six-song project, which features new versions of some of Morgan’s biggest hits, as well as two brand-new songs.

“Making this record has been so much fun because I got to get in the studio with some of my friends and also re-create some of my catalog in a way that feels like brand-new music,” shares Morgan.

The six track album is chalk full of hitmakers and some of the best voices in country! Opening Enlisted is the working-class anthem, “Raise The Bar,” one of the EP’s two brand-new songs, which Craig sings with friend and neighbor, Luke Combs. And bookending the six-song project is “That Ain’t Gonna Be Me” with Trace Adkins, a song that spells out the importance Morgan places on his convictions.

Lainey Wilson also shared her excitement on being featured on one of Craig's biggest hits. Lainey Wilson lends her stellar talents to a reimagined take on “International Harvester.” “It’s an absolute honor to be a part of this record,” said Wilson “I remember the first time I ever heard ‘International Harvester’ and the feeling I got knowing that there was music being written that felt like it was made just for me. I come from a family of farmers, so it’s really a full circle moment to be on this track alongside my good friend Craig.”

Jelly Roll and Craig have collaborated on his track Almost Home many times live, including on the Opry stage. So we are so excited that we are finally getting a recorded version.

“This song is full circle for me. It’s about situations you are sometimes in that you just mentally want to be somewhere else — ‘Almost Home’ — it’s something that I listened to in jail. Me and my cellmates could really relate to it. When I got out, I spent what little money I had and went to see Craig Morgan at the Grand Ole Opry and cried when he sang it," Jelly shared in a press statement.

Also included in the collection is “Redneck Yacht Club,” a collaboration with longtime friend Blake Shelton, who made a cameo in the original song’s official music video in 2005.Shelton shares: “Craig and I have been friends for many years. I’m a fan of his music and admire him as a human. After all of these years, I still don’t understand why he still feels the need to wear that toupee, but I’m thrilled he asked me to sing with him on ‘Redneck Yacht Club.’”

Last week, Morgan kicked off his popular “God, Family, Country Tour 2023,” in partnership with Operation Finally Home.Morgan and special guests The Reeves Brothers will play thirteen theater and auditorium dates through the end of October.
