Country superstar Craig Morgan will perform at the West Georgia Technical College Foundation’s annual Black Tie & Boots event on Saturday, August 3.

Craig Morgan joins the long and star-studded list of country music performers who have graced the Murphy Campus stage, including Blake Shelton, Little Big Town, Wynonna & the Big Noise and last year’s performer, Lonestar.

Craig Morgan, a multi-faceted entertainer, has made a name for himself as a country music icon, TV personality, celebrated outdoorsman and patriotic U.S. Army veteran. Morgan has chartered 25 songs on Billboard and thrills massive crowds with signature hits including “Bonfire,” “Almost Home,” “Redneck Yacht Club,” “International Harvester,” “This Ole Boy,” “Wake Up Loving You,” and four-week number one hit, “That’s What I Love About Sunday.”

Besides boasting a talented headliner, Black Tie & Boots offers guests the opportunity to support WGTC Foundation while enjoying dinner, drinks, and dancing. All proceeds of the event benefit WGTC Foundation’s mission that includes providing for its gap funding program, need-based student scholarships and general support to West Georgia Technical College.

Opportunities for partnership, some of which include reserved tables and a VIP Meet & Greet reception with Craig Morgan are now available.

WGTC President Dr. Scott Rule said he’s thankful for the continued support that has made Black Tie & Boots a community favorite over the past 17 years. Last year was the most profitable Black Tie & Boots event to date, with over $60,000 in support provided to the WGTC Foundation.

“West Georgia Tech is so fortunate to have such influential community and business leaders as advocates and supporters,” Rule said. “We work every day to ensure we are preparing tomorrow’s skilled employees to meet the needs of these businesses and industries. Black Tie & Boots, our signature annual gala, is one way for us to recognize and thank them for that support. With food, music, and fellowship, it’s a great time for everyone.”
