Craig Morgan used to polish his twangy chops and heartfelt singing by entertaining his fellow troops during his time in the U.S. Army. No stranger to military life (his father was also in the Army), Morgan grew up with two main goals: he wanted to join the service and serve his country like his father, and he wanted to be a country music star. He got both. In 2000, Morgan's self-titled debut was released and did well, but the Atlantic label wasn't quite a good fit. He left for Broken Bow and in 2003 released I Love It, which housed the hit singles "Almost Home" and "Every Friday Afternoon." My Kind of Livin' was released in 2005, quickly followed by Little Bit of Life a year later. In 2008, the singer's Greatest Hits Collection hit the shelves in time for Christmas.
