The trip also marked Morgan’s third USO tour with the Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Paul J. Selva, having last traveled with him on a weeklong, six-country USO tour in March 2017. And it was Morgan’s fifteenth U.S. military entertainment tour overseas.

Morgan first volunteered with the USO in 2002 and is a USO Merit Award recipient who has entertained more than 37,000 service members and military families in 12 countries. Among the countries Morgan has visited with the USO are Greece, the United Kingdom, Portugal, Diego Garcia, Qatar and Italy.

Prior to his breakout in country music with 2002’s “Almost Home” and 2004’s “That’s What I Love About Sunday,” the singer-songwriter spent more than 10.5 years of service in the U.S. Army and an additional 6.5 years in the U.S. Army Reserves.

His Gallery at Morgan Farms, a family-owned and operated farm-to-home business in his hometown of Dickson, Tenn. launched in 2017. The store features a variety of artisan items handmade by Morgan and his family, and shoppers can also order his custom blended Old Tattoo Cabernet Sauvignon, in partnership with Lot18.com.

His tour resumes stateside on May 4 in Champaign, Ill.
