Craig Morgan Releases “The Mask” As An Ode To Frontline Heroes
On the heels of his “masterpiece of an album” (People) God, Family, Country, which debuted Memorial Day weekend, Craig Morgan has released “The Mask” as an ode to our frontline heroes and those struggling in this time of crisis and chaos. Craig debuted this brand-new song during his April 25th performance of the Grand Ole Opry broadcast, and previously provided it as a “Gratitune” – a consumer-generated music platform to celebrate and thank patients and healthcare workers of Vanderbilt University Medical Center during the COVID-19 pandemic.
While Craig and his bandleader Mike Rogers penned “The Mask” well before the pandemic began, he felt compelled to release this mid-tempo ballad in hopes of touching anyone feeling uncertain in this unprecedented time. Whether the mask be literal or figurative, many can relate to wearing a “mask” in our society.
Cause when I get home and it’s late at night No one’s around and I turn off the light I cry and scream, and yell like a crazy man I don’t have to pretend that I’m doing well I can tell the world it can go to hell It’s just me and God when I take off the mask
Fans can also stream God, Family, Country, Craig’s first album in nearly four years, which is out now.
