Country star Craig Morgan’s military prowess prepared him for ‘Beyond the Age’

CBS Television’s “Beyond the Age” follows nine celebrities through the jungles of Panama. While many people aren’t necessarily equipped for the experience, for country star Craig Morgan it was a form of stress relief.

Before hitting the music scene, Morgan spent 17 years with the United States Army. It turns out, during the service of our country, he spent time in Panama.

“I was there in 1989 to oust Manuel Antonio Noriega, part of Operation Just Cause,” Morgan explained. “When you think about the area, I had a special skill. I already knew a lot of the things that happened to us in the woods.”

While taking celebrities from the lap of luxury to the woods doesn’t seem ideal, Morgan was surprised by how some of her fellow contestants were up to the challenge. “I was pleasantly surprised by their enthusiasm,” Morgan explained. “They’re in an environment they’re not comfortable in and yet they all moved on. It was unbelievable.”

Now that Morgan is back home in Tennessee, he won’t be around for long. He is performing at the great Grand Ole Opry tonight as part of the annual “Salute the Troops” show.

“This is extremely special because it is an opportunity for us as the Grand Ole Opry to pay tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice.”

As we all enter Memorial Day weekend, Morgan wants us all to remember what a weekend is all about. “When you go out to the lake and you’re eating your grilled hotdog and drinking beer, those are wonderful things, but never forget that we celebrate the freedoms we have because of the men and women who served And especially paid the supreme sacrifice.”

The national Memorial Day concert airs Sunday, May 29 at 8 p.m. on PBS.
