A proud supporter of the trades, RIDGID®, part of Emerson’s professional tools portfolio, is pleased to announce its continued partnership with Pfister Faucets® on the latest season of their popular “American Plumber Stories” docuseries. The brands began working together during season two of the series and are excited to kick-off season three today.
Highlighting plumbers whose lives were changed forever by the trade, season three builds on the personal stories shared during the first two seasons that have garnered millions of views. Launched in 2021, the series is hosted by country music entertainer and Army veteran Craig Morgan and aims to promote the benefits of learning the plumbing trade to the next generation of professionals.
“The pride and enthusiasm of the plumbers featured in “American Plumber Stories” continues to inspire us at RIDGID,” said Becky Brotherton, director of engagement marketing, RIDGID for Emerson. “Our team can’t wait for people to hear about each plumber’s experience in the industry and why they pursued a career in the field.”

About Craig Morgan
A multi-faceted entertainer, Craig Morgan has made a name for himself as a country music icon, TV personality, celebrated outdoorsman and patriotic Army veteran. One of country music’s best-loved artists, Morgan has charted 25 songs on Billboard and thrills massive crowds with signature hits including “Bonfire,” Almost Home,” “Redneck Yacht Club,” “International Harvester,” “This Ole Boy,” “Wake Up Loving You,” and the four week No. 1, “That’s What I Love About Sunday.” Last year, Morgan released his first new music in over three years – God, Family, Country. The album combines five new songs – including “The Father, My Son, and the Holy Ghost,” Craig’s faith-filled tribute to his son Jerry, with remastered versions of some of the most powerful tracks he recorded for Broken Bow from 2002 to 2008, combining his past hits mixed with future signatures. Craig offers his take on Gavin DeGraw’s smash, “Soldier.” He also teamed up with active duty Army Airborne Rangers Justin Wright and Andrew Yacovone to offer up the summery “Sippin’ On The Simple Life.”
Craig received one of country music’s highest honors when he was inducted as a member of the Grand Ole Opry in 2008. Prior to becoming a country music star and TV sensation, Morgan spent seventeen years serving our country in the Army and Army Reserves. Morgan remains an avid supporter of America’s military personnel and has made 16 overseas trips to perform for our troops. He is a recipient of the 2006 USO Merit Award and in 2018 was awarded the Army’s Outstanding Civilian Service Medal, one of the highest awards the Department of the Army can bestow upon a civilian, in recognition of his significant dedication to our military men and women around the world.
