American country music artist Craig Morgan has been booked as the entertainment headliner for this year’s Scarecrow Festival in Washington C.H.

A multi-faceted entertainer, Morgan has made a name for himself as a country music icon, television host, celebrated outdoorsman and patriotic Army veteran. The Black River Entertainment artist regularly thrills massive crowds with signature hits, including “Bonfire,” “Almost Home,” “Redneck Yacht Club,” “International Harvester,” “This Ole Boy,” “Wake Up Loving You,” and the six-week number one hit, “That’s What I Love About Sunday.”

Morgan’s new album, “A Whole Lot More To Me,” featuring singles, “I’ll Be Home Soon” and “When I’m Gone,” was released June 3 by Black River Entertainment. He received one of country music’s highest honors when he was inducted as a member of the Grand Ole Opry in 2008.

Morgan will perform the second night of the Scarecrow Festival: Saturday, Sept. 16 at 8 p.m. The 2017 festival will run from Sept. 15-17, according to event organizers.

“We’re very excited to bring Craig Morgan as the headline entertainment this year,” said Mekia Rhoades, chairperson of the Scarecrow Festival committee. “Plans are well underway for all of the entertainment at this year’s festival and will be announced at a later date.”

In addition to a prolific country music career, Morgan hosts the award-winning TV show, “Craig Morgan: All Access Outdoors,” now in its seventh season on Outdoor Channel. Prior to becoming a country music star and television sensation, Morgan spent 17 years serving our country in the Army and Army Reserves. He is an avid supporter of America’s military personnel and a recipient of the 2006 USO Merit Award.

“I think Craig Morgan will be an awesome show for the community,” said Jolinda Van Dyke, executive director of Fayette County Travel & Tourism.
