Craig Morgan -- known for hits such as “That’s What I Love About Sunday” and “International Harvester” -- says his new song "I'll Be Home Soon" "is the single that I’ve waited for,” explains the country singer. "I feel it’s more me than anything else I’ve done in the past."

The Grand Ole Opry star, recently shot the video clip -- which Billboard is premiering exclusively below -- in Ocean Way in Nashville. The track allowed his soulful side to come through. "I’m a soul guy -- a rhythm and blues kind of country singer," says Morgan. "I feel like this song allows me to do that vocally. It’s a very sexy song, the kind of song I think every guy should be willing to say to his girl and I think every girl kind of wants to hear this from her guy."

And when Morgan performs it, he's especially inspired by those serving in the military. "I can’t help but think of the men and women that are serving when I do this song," he says, "After having spent so much time with them over the years, I know how important that coming home is, and that song just kind of talks about that feeling you get when you hear those words.”

Home is very important to the singer, who can be found around his hometown at local restaurants such as Sister’s or in the crowd on Friday night watching his son play for the Dickson County High School Cougars. And his feelings about home ring true in "I'll Be Home Soon." It's "easy for me to relate to, I mean, it is my life. Every day it seems like 365 out of the year, I probably travel 250-280 of those days," says Morgan. "If I had a nickel for every time I tell my wife that I’ll be home soon…I can’t wait to get there and vice versa, we look forward to those moments. Quite honestly, I think that’s how I managed to stay married so long is by being gone so much,” he adds with a laugh.

“I’ll Be Home Soon” is the first single from Morgan’s third project for Black River, A Whole Lot More To Me, which will hit stores on June 3.
