Craig Morgan and the Fish
Craig Morgan has another big hit with his current single, “Bonfire,” and while he may like spending time around a big ol’ fire, he also enjoys leisure activities that involve water — but his youngest son…well, not so much. Craig says that a fishing trip with his three boys not long ago wasn’t the most rewarding experience for young Wyatt, who saw his big brothers pulling up fish while things were a bit quiet on his line. But Craig completely relates to the frustration. He says, “Fishing is not much fun to me if you’re not catchin’ fish.” He laughs, “That’s like ridin’ a stationary bike…why? I want to go somewhere!”
Look for “Bonfire” on Craig’s latest album, That’s Why, which also features “Love Remembers” and “God Must Really Love Me.”
“My youngest was just a little…you know, after him not catchin’ anything for about an hour, he was so ready to go back. Now, my 12-year-old, and Kyle, my oldest son, you know, they were catchin’ fish, so they were havin’ a ball. It’s like, I gotta take him…I may even have to put one on the hook, put it out there, hand him the pole, and say, ‘Look! You got a bite!’ (laughs) I think he’ll have a lot more fun, but yeah, fishing is not much fun to me if you’re not catchin’ fish. I don’t know about these guys that do it for a livin’. If they’re not catchin’ fish, I couldn’t stand that! (laughs) That’s like riding a motorcycle that don’t run, you know? (laughs) That’s like ridin’ a stationary bike…why? (laughs) I want to go somewhere!” (laughs)
ARRESTED now in Colorado...but what a story and week for 2 brothers and their stripper sister!
Text messages and tweets by three fugitive siblings who shot at a police officer and robbed a bank reveal a dangerous mindset and a firm bond between the siblings, "We've certainly seen their mindset when... They shot at a law enforcement officer outside of Tampa Bay, Fla., and when they fired inside that bank in Valdosta, Ga. But these additional texts and tweets have given us additional insight," FBI Special Agent Stephen Emmett told "Good Morning America" today. " We are concerned and feel that they are going to continue and cause problems to say the least for law enforcement." Ryan Dougherty, 21; his sister Lee Grace E. Dougherty, 29; and half-brother Dylan Dougherty Stanley, 26, have been on the lam since Aug. 2 when they shot at a police officer attempting to pull their white Subaru Impreza over for speeding. A few hours later, they robbed a bank in Georg…
