Craig Morrison, Australian Vocal Artist of the Year 2012 Central Coast, ASA National Country Songwriter of the Year 2011, and Multi-Award Winner for his live entertainment performances, is the hottest Australian live country act to touch down in Nashville, TN since Keith Urban. 2013 has seen Craig continue to perform internationally. In March he performed in Australia’s Biggest International Country & Roots Festival, “CMC Rocks the Hunter,” performing on the same stage as American musicians Rascal Flatts, Billy Ray Cyrus, Chris Young, and The Band Perry.

Bridging the physical and musical expanse between Sydney, Australia, and Music City USA is no small feat for a Country singer.  Over the years, plenty of aspiring stars have taken that leap of faith to follow their dreams, packing up and moving to Nashville from halfway around the world.  Aussie Country singer Craig Morrison has managed to cultivate a successful career at opposite ends of the globe, however.  The Sydney native and now Nashville resident continues to release music at home and abroad, often promoting different singles in different markets simultaneously.  In the face of a perpetually changing music business, Morrison stands as an excellent example of an artist who recognizes the importance of a global career path. The son of legendary Aussie artist Lucky Starr, Morrison grew up surrounded by the day-to-day rigors of the entertainment business.  His father is widely regarded as one of the cornerstones of the Australian Pop genre and the first artist to record the legendary Johnny Cash anthem, “I’ve Been Everywhere.”  By the time Morrison was 13, he was acting in television commercials and performing on stage with his dad.  After playing in a handful of rock bands around Sydney, Morrison eventually reconnected with one of his first loves, Country music.  He knew he had found his true calling as an artist.
