Craig Morgan surprised Saturday (July 29th) night’s sold-out audience by enlisting and being sworn into the U.S. Army Reserve on the stage of the Grand Ole Opry. The newly sworn in Staff Sgt. and Warrant Officer candidate returned to the stage to close out the show in official uniform to perform his hit “Soldier.”
