Cupid's Pulse Article: Country Singer Craig Morgan Helps to Spread Fire Safety to FamiliesCupid's Pulse Article: Country Singer Craig Morgan Helps to Spread Fire Safety to Families

By Maria Darbenzio

It’s easy to see that country music star Craig Morgan is a family man at heart, and his newest venture only serves as further proof: He’s currently working as the spokesperson for KIDDE Fire Safety’s “Be a Safety Hero” initiative to help protect families from potential home fires. The singer is taking time to donate smoke alarms and educate people on fire safety while on his VA Mortgage Leader Presents Craig Morgan The Journey Tour. Recently, Celebrity Baby Scoop caught up with Morgan to talk about his family and future plans.

CBS: You have a marriage that has spanned more than two  and a half decades. What is your secret to success?

CM: “I stay away as much as I can. No, I’m kidding. I think it’s a give and take; you have to hope that you’re both giving and taking at the right time. When you aren’t, you just can’t give up. Our society has made it so easy for everybody these days to quit and walk away from a relationship. I think the simple thing is to not give up…even though it might be bad right now and you think there is something better around the corner, usually when you get around the corner, you wish you were back where you were.”

CBS: You have four beautiful kids.  What are some of your fondest memories of being a dad?  Do you think you parent your sons differently from how you parented your daughter?

CM: “Man, just watching them grow up. It’s just that they say the coolest and greatest things. There’s actually a TV show named after it, Kids Say The Darndest Things, and so on and so forth. A lot of these shows come from the kids, and it’s just amazing to see their thought processes, growth, and the amount of love that they have for their parents — unconditional love really.

CBS: How tough was it to give Alex away at her wedding?  What advice would you give other fathers facing that momentous day?

CM: “It wasn’t tough; it was one of those moments where you really take everything in. Fortunately for us, she was marrying a good young man that we were excited about and we love. He’s part of our family now. It wasn’t like she was marrying some kid that I didn’t like, but that wouldn’t happen anyway because he would have went on somewhere else!

For other fathers facing that momentous day, it’s going to happen eventually, so I would say to hope and pray for the best. Hope that your daughter finds and falls in love with someone who is going to be good for her. What’s good for her might not be good for you, and, ultimately, we have to accept that it’s not about us; it’s about them. When you pray for their happiness, I think it all works out.”

CBS: How has your household changed since Alex moved out and you now have a house full of boys? What do you like to do together as a family? 

CM: “It hasn’t really changed a lot. My daughter still comes over pretty regularly, and our boys are bigger now. It’s not a lot of change. It’s a little weird not having her around all the time, but she still calls every day!”
