IN A SMALL TOWN
If he weren’t already a singer, Craig Morgan would make a good subject for a country song: Born in Tennessee, this married father of four served 10 years in the army before returning home to raise his kids, rescue someone else’s from a burning building, and (according to the genre’s most played song of 2005) spend his Sunday mornings in church and afternoons playing touch football with the neighbors. Tonight, he and frequent collaborator Phil O’Donnell perform the latest installment of Joe’s Pub’s CMA Songwriters series, showing us cityfolk what we’re missing with stripped-down versions of tunes like “More Cars Than People,” “Bonfire,” and “International Harvester.”
