Cattle Baron's headliner, Craig Morgan, turns real-life hero

Posted: Updated:

(CNN) - Just hours after entertaining East Texans at this year's Tyler Cattle Baron's Gala, country music star, Craig Morgan put his prior EMT training to good use Sunday morning.  The country star helped emergency responders attend to a serious accident near his hometown of Dickson, Tennessee.

Morgan and his crew were returning from his concert at this year's Cattle Baron's.  Two semis and a tanker collided in front of the tour bus.  Morgan and his crew members Jerry Hines and Joey Greer ran to the scene and helped put out the fires that had broken out.

Incredibly, the drivers escaped with only minor injuries.  Before Morgan became a country star, he worked as an EMT in a local fire department and also served in the military.
