Craig Morgan has reunited with his longtime record label to bring his deeply personal new song, “The Father, My Son, And The Holy Ghost,” to country radio.
BBR Music Group’s flagship label Broken Bow Records is where Morgan was signed to from 2002-2008. During this time, he released career-defining hits such as “That’s What I Love About Sunday,” “Redneck Yacht Club” and “Almost Home.”
He and the label have reached a new deal to bring “The Father, My Son, And The Holy Ghost” to radio beginning today. The song, which was written and produced solely by Morgan, is a faith-filled tribute to his late son, Jerry, who tragically lost his life in a tubing accident in 2016.
The news comes after Morgan’s longtime friend and fellow Grand Ole Opry member, Blake Shelton, brought attention to his new song by leading an online campaign to take it to the top of the charts. Other celebrities, including Kelly Clarkson, Ellen DeGeneres and Gwen Stefani, got in on the action as well and ultimately helped bring “The Father, My Son, And The Holy Ghost” to No. 1 on iTunes All Genres Top Songs chart and the Top Country Songs chart.
“I am truly humbled by the response to the song so far and to my friend Blake Shelton for what he has done to honor Jerry,” Morgan shares. “It’s incredible to reunite with the team at Broken Bow to share this song with radio and my hope is, it will be a help to those who need it most.”
“The Father, My Son, And The Holy Ghost” is available to purchase and stream.
