“When I’m Gone,” written by Justin Ebach and Steven Dale Jones, is the lead single from Craig’s new project. Produced by Byron Gallimore and Craig Morgan, “When I’m Gone” is receiving rave reviews from veteran industry critics.
“He remains one of the greatest vocalists in this city, and this powerhouse performance of a pile-driving song proves it. It’s a ferociously soaring rocker about living life to the fullest. Sing it, brother.” – Music Row
“The Grand Ole Opry star has been pretty consistent through the years and this only adds to his legacy with a song that reminds me of some of his better hits in blending the mid-tempo ballad with a chorus that allows Craig to showcase his range…may be Craig Morgan’s best single since joining Black River Entertainment.” – Roughstock.com
“If the rest of the album is as solid as this single, I predict big things from Morgan in the near future! Simply put, you’ve got to live it sometimes to sing about it – and Morgan shines pretty bright here doing just that!” – CMChat
