The 6-Song Track List For Craig Morgan’s EP
The EP opens with the anthemic “Raise The Bar,” a blue-collar tribute featuring none other than Craig’s friend and neighbor, Luke Combs. It’s a powerful way to kick off the project, setting the tone for what’s to come.
One of the highlights of Enlisted is the sad track “Almost Home,” where Craig teams up with Jelly Roll. What makes this collaboration even more special is that the two artists previously performed this song together at the Grand Ole Opry, adding a layer of emotional depth to the recording. Jelly Roll’s personal connection to the lyrics makes it a heartfelt rendition that’s sure to resonate with listeners.
Country music enthusiasts will also be thrilled to hear the reimagined version of “Redneck Yacht Club” featuring none other than Blake Shelton, who humorously remarked, “Craig and I have been friends for many years. I’m a fan of his music and admire him as a human. After all of these years, I still don’t understand why he still feels the need to wear that toupee, but I’m thrilled he asked me to sing with him on ‘Redneck Yacht Club.'”
The track “That’s What I Love About Sunday” will be featuring Rascal Flatts’ lead singer Gary LeVox who will be singing some of the sentimental parts of the song.
Lainey Wilson joins Craig on “International Harvester,” making it a true full-circle moment for her. She shared, “It’s an absolute honor to be a part of this record. I remember the first time I ever heard ‘International Harvester’ and the feeling I got knowing that there was music being written that felt like it was made just for me. I come from a family of farmers, so it’s really a full circle moment to be on this track alongside my good friend Craig.”
The EP also closes on a powerful note with “That Ain’t Gonna Be Me,” featuring the deep voice of Trace Adkins.
