Craig Morgan has been one heck of a busy guy lately. After releasing his first album in what he admits is “quite a while,” he says that he is genuinely shocked by how well “This Ole Boy” has performed on the charts. The always entertaining Craig called us this morning for a surprisingly serious interview on his career, his newest single “Corn Star,” supporting the military, meeting Conan O’Brien, and why he may be taking a break from singing.

See what pop song Craig told us he will be recording for his next album, a special birthday message for Blake Shelton, and what he’s thinking of taking on permanently besides singing in our exclusive interview with Craig:

Craig Morgan to Appear on Hotel Impossible

2401_craig-morgan-1

Craig Morgan is set to appear on the Travel Channel’s new series “Hotel Impossible” on Monday, June 11, at 10 PM EST.  In the upcoming episode, Morgan will join hotel guru Anthony Melchiorri as he travels to the Music Valley section on Nashville to the historic Fiddler’s Inn.  Located across the street from the Grand Ole Opry, The Fiddler’s Inn is a 202-room independent hotel that has its original personality.

Upon Melchiorri’s arrival, he is shocked to see a lack of personality in the historic Inn.  The Inn lacks a place for guest to mingle together and has a gift shop filled with bland Nashville souvenirs.  Melchiorri says that for the hotel to survive, it must be redecorated, rebranded, and reconnected with its country music roots.  Melchiorri plans a food truck competition hosted by the hotel, which will be judged by Craig Morgan.  Morgan will also give an acoustic performance of songs off his newly released album, “This Ole Boy.”

Be sure to catch Craig Morgan on “Hotel Impossible” on the Travel Channel at 10 PM EST on Monday, June 11!
