Craig Morgan is Ready to be a “Corn Star” at Country Radio

MG_9550_rt_3

Following up a hit single like “This Ole Boy” may seem like a daunting task, but Craig Morgan is ready to hit radio with a snappy punch by releasing his new single “Corn Star.” Written tongue-in-cheek by Shane Minor and Jeffrey Steele, the up-tempo track is bound for summer anthem status.

The song describes a true country girl with ” a bag of seed on her suntan shoulder, cut off jeans and a tight tank top with a big red mower on it…She’s a CORN STAR.”  The clever lyrics have made it an immediate fan favorite. Morgan isn’t looking for a Hollywood girl, but a true country girl to be his “Corn Star.”

The song is the second release from Morgan’s new album, “This Ole Boy,” following in the footsteps of the Top-15 single with the same name. The album is his first in three years and marks his debut release on Black River Entertainment.

Outside of the music world, Craig Morgan just announced the third season  of his TV show “Craig Morgan: All Access Outdoors.” Starting July 1, 2012, viewers can catch Craig every Sunday night at 11pm (EST) on the Outdoor Channel.
