Craig Morgan Makes Steady Gains At Country Radio

Craig Morgan’s faith-filled tribute to his son Jerry, “The Father, My Son, And The Holy Ghost” nabs 23 new radio stations out of the box making it the 4th most added song at country radio this week. Morgan’s first new music since 2016 is finding early support in key markets such as Atlanta, Boston, Miami, Pittsburgh, Tampa and national airplay on Music Choice and Sirius XM.

The news comes on the heels of reuniting with BBR Music Group’s flagship label Broken Bow Records, his record label home for more than six years. The emotional track which Music Row proclaims as a “breathtaking reminder of just how moving great country singing and songwriting can be,” made national news last month, hitting No. 1 on iTunes All Genres Top Songs chart in addition to the Top Country Songs chart with the support of longtime friend and fellow Opry member, Blake Shelton. Shelton launched an unprecedented twitter campaign in support of the song he says he would “gladly give up (his) spot on country radio for.” The viral push gained support from several other artists and celebrities including Blanco Brown, Kelly Clarkson, Luke Combs, Carson Daly, Ellen DeGeneres, Charles Esten, Larry The Cable Guy, Angie Harmon, Gwen Stefani, Cole Swindell, The Today Show and more.
