Exclusive "Army Wives" Q&A With Craig Morgan

Posted By LisaRaphael 7:00pm GMT

We're not quite sure how we feel abut new Army Wife Jackie Clarke just yet, but when it comes to her choice in musical guests to serenade Fort Marshall, we have to give her a standing ovation! Country star Craig Morgan guest stars on Episode 4 of "Army Wives" this Sunday, marking his acting debut and performing at an event on the show. In an exclusive Q&A with the "Army Wives" Blog, Craig shares his own Army story with fans, spills which of the show's hubbies he'd switch places with and tells us which songs he's playing on Sunday's show.

I think the fans will be surprised to know how closely you actually relate to “Army Wives"! Tell us more about why you were such a perfect fit to guest star and perform on the show.
Craig Morgan:
I was in the Army active duty for over ten years, so I can relate to both the soldiers and the Army Wives in the show. I have my own "Army Wife" of 24 years at home… you just can’t undo that training! There is definitely a special dynamic among the military community and I think "Army Wives" does a good job of showing that while taking creative liberties in plotting the story line. The show does bring attention to the fact that there are families involved and affected by every decision our government makes regarding military action. It gives military families and veterans a show they can relate to and provides insight into life on post for civilians… with a bit of dramatic flair, of course! This was a perfect place for me to make my scripted acting debut and I'm incredibly proud to be part this episode.

Besides having lived the life, had you tuned in to "Army Wives" before?
I had definitely seen the show (even though I don't get to watch as much TV because of my tour schedule), but yes. My wife is a fan too, so she gives me updates. The ladies at my label were really excited about this appearance too. There are several HUGE fans of the show there and I hear a lot about it on the road from fans!

Our fans love behind-the-scenes stories — what was it like being on the set of “Army Wives”? Any funny stories from the set or were you nervous at all?
I wasn't really nervous because I was playing myself so I couldn't mess it up too bad. Plus, I've had plenty of experience being in front of the camera with my own show "Craig Morgan All Access Outdoors." I have to say that being on set with "Army Wives" was such a great experience. Everyone was so nice and great to work with — total pros!

One thing that I found funny was the boots; the ladies on the show have to stand around so much on the set and we were outside so the high heels had to come off during the down time. There was someone who would come and wipe off the heels. And I guess standing around in high heels is not so comfortable... I know I hear my wife complaining when we are standing on the red carpet for a long time!

How did you choose which songs to perform on “Army Wives” and why do you think the AW fans will love those particular tunes?
"This Ole Boy" is my current single on country radio and it really describes my life and just an everyday lifestyle. "Love Loves a Long Night" is my first "sexy song" and I think it was perfect for the story in this episode. It's a sultry song about love and how you never want the night to end when you're with your sweetheart.

If you could return to the show and create your dream character, who it would be? And if you got to take over for one of the Army Husbands — who would it be?
Well, since I’ve already been on the show as myself and I have talked with the Army about serving in some capacity again so I can officially retire out — I only lack three years or so — I could come back as myself reenlisting. That could be fun! Like the Craig Morgan character, but not! Then, since [one of the Army Wives] wanted to go to the concert so badly, I could do another concert so she can go, maybe even cause a little onscreen drama. Haha!

If I was taking over for one of the husbands on the show, I'd probably pick Frank Sherwood because he is a such a proud soldier and commanding leader… and Catherine Bell would be a nice perk! I’m so glad I have my own cool former Army wife!
