Craig Morgan has added another project to his already busy schedule. The “That’s What I Love About Sunday” singer has announced that he and his family are involved in a new reality series called “Morgan Family Strong.”
The new show will air on UP TV and will center around Craig and his family. The series will follow Craig and his close-knit family (wife Karen, daughter Alexandra, and sons Kyle and Wyatt) at home and on tour as they come together around the heartbreak of losing their son and brother, Jerry, in a tragic accident, by launching the family’s passion project – Morgan Farms.
“Craig and his family are so genuine, real and authentic that we immediately fell in love with them and knew that their story was a perfect fit for UP and our viewers,” said Timothy Kuryak, UP’s SVP unscripted development and production. “They are such a fun and loving family, yet in the face of a terrible tragedy, they have turned to one another and grown stronger.”
The first season will see Craig and his family manage home life and life on the road as they work on opening The Gallery at Morgan Farms. Craig decided to open the Gallery in his hometown of Dickson, Tenn., after losing his 19-year-old son, Jerry, in a boating accident.
“That was a tough time for us, we still struggle every day,” Craig told One Country at the opening of the gallery. “One of the things that we did, and I knew we needed to do, was to focus on something collectively as a family and that something was this business. For me, the woodwork was kind of my therapy.
“I’d go sit in my shop and cry and I’d end up making a bunch of junk that I wanted to sell at a really high price,” Morgan joked.
The show will also focus on Craig’s songwriting as he pens songs for his album and takes the stage of the Grand Ole Opry. We’ll also follow the family on vacation to the Alaskan wilderness and much more.
“Morgan Family Strong” will premiere Thursday, March 1 at 9:30 pm ET.
