9/14/09 Update: Craig was definitely hunting for bear, and he bagged a big one! Click here to see the photo.
Warning: It is an ex-bear and the photo is not for the squeamish.
Craig Morgan got a bit of a scare at the end of his recent week-long vacation in Alaska, and it had nothing to do with the bear he was hunting.
The "God Must Really Love Me" singer was visiting the Wrangell-Petersburg Census Area County, Alaska, with family and friends and posted updates on Twitter about the great time he was having. (See Craig’s video at http://twitvid.com/F07AE)
But the trip home got a little scary.
"Just left Seattle had to turn around and make an emergency landing I'm back," Morgan posted early Friday night.
The singer was scheduled to perform Saturday in Tennessee, so being stuck in Seattle could have left a lot of disappointed fans if he couldn’t get a plane home.
But the crisis was averted and Craig found a very late plane to Dallas that eventually got him to Nashville Saturday morning and in time for the show.
Craig’s Tour Manager updated fans via Twitter Saturday morning: “For the ones who were wondering, Craig made it home this morning. He got a big bear. I'm sure you'll see it soon. :)”
Craig has promised to post video from his bear hunt on his Twitter account: http://twitter.com/cmorganmusic. No word on if he got any video from his scary flight.
