Fans are calling country singer Craig Morgan a hero after he came to the rescue during a serious truck crash.

The singer says what he did was "second nature" for him, and should be for everyone.

"I think we should all help, anytime we're given the chance to help. If you don't have a special skill set, like I've been very fortunate to go to these schools and stuff, there still might be something you can do and I think it's important that you just don't pass up someone in need," he said.

Morgan was on his tour bus last month, headed home to Dickson, when three tractor trailers crashed in front of him in Humphreys County. He grabbed a fire extinguisher and helped put out the flames.

Morgan was a sheriff's deputy in Dickson county for several years. He's also been a firefighter, an EMT and was in the Army for 11 years on active duty and six years in the reserves.

He says the real heroes are the first responders, and he's urging everyone to make a donation to their local volunteer fire departments.

Morgan is about to release a new song, and the fourth season of his TV show, "Craig Morgan, All Access Outdoors" premieres in July.
