I am wondering why country singer Craig Morgan has not been on CMT, and why we do not hear more about him. His song Almost Home should have made it to song of the year.

The song, which climbed to No. 6 on the charts, has racked up several trophies for Morgan and co-writer Kerry Kurt Phillips, including Music Row magazine's prestigious Song of the Year Award. Morgan recently was honored with the Songwriter Achievement Award from The Nashville Songwriters Association International. "I like to paint vivid pictures that walk you through the emotions involved with everyday experiences," says Morgan, a native of Nashville, Tenn. That's What I Love About Sunday, a song from his upcoming album, My Kind of Livin', is doing well on CMT. Morgan and his wife, Karen, live in Dickson, Tenn. (pop. 12,224), with their four children.
