Craig Morgan And Sarah Darling To Perform At The St. Jude Country Music Marathon and 1/2 Marathon. Craig Morgan and Sarah Darling will be a part of the 14th annual St. Jude Country Music Marathon & ½ Marathon presented by Nissan. Continuing the tradition of combining great country music with Nashville’s premier running event, Morgan and Darling will end the weekend of festivities with a post-race concert at the Nashville Municipal Auditorium at 7:00 p.m. CST on Saturday, April 27. The musically themed road race attracts more than 30,000 runners, walkers and 6,000 junior racers through ING KiDS ROCK Nashville, who will take on the 26.2 and 13.1-mile courses while passing many of Nashville’s best live bands along the route. Complimentary concert tickets are provided to all registered runners and volunteers. Runners may purchase additional tickets for $35. “As a Nashville area native, I’m proud to represent Country Music and St. Jude and give all the runners a chance to let loose after the big race. Save up some energy for the end of the night because we’re gonna make sure you leave Music City with a lot of great memories!”, said Craig Morgan. St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, one of the world’s premier centers for the research and treatment of childhood cancer and other deadly diseases, is the official benefiting charity of the St. Jude Country Music Marathon & ½ Marathon. Again this year, participants registered for the race are encouraged to also sign up as St. Jude Heroes and Run For a Reason®. St. Jude Heroes, a special group who raise incremental funds for the hospital by securing donations from family, friends and co-workers, are instrumental in supporting the $1.8 million per day it takes to run the hospital. Thanks to the generosity of donors, no family ever pays St. Jude for anything. St. Jude covers the cost of treatment, travel, lodging and food for each patient and a family member.
Craig Morgan Appears On His Second Episode Of “Hotel Impossible.” Craig Morgan will be on Travel Channel’s “Hotel Impossible” series for the second time! The show will air on Monday, January 14. In the upcoming episode, Morgan joins hotel “fixer” Anthony Melchiorri as he heads north to Glacier Bear Lodge in Yakutat, Alaska to fix a hotel dominated by commercial and sport fishermen. With fewer than 700 people in a town of 10,000 square miles, the sleepy community has some incredible features to offer those who are interested in getting closer to nature. Unfortunately, the lodge is out of date, not very accommodating and literally rotting away. Melchiorri enlists the help of Country star and expert outdoorsman Morgan to show him the finer points of big time fishing and why sportsman from all over the world would flock to this beautiful and wildlife abundant destination. Morgan joined Melchiorri on “Hotel Impossible” last summer in an episode that featured Nashville. Morgan’s new album This Ole Boy, featuring his latest single “More Trucks Than Cars” is available everywhere music is sold.
