Roger Creager isn’t some washed-up wanna-be copy-cat sell-out country star; he’s the REAL DEAL.
Roger Creager knew he wanted to be a country star at age six, often belting out country classics as a child. He took piano lessons and then started picking up guitar in high school, when he also began trying his hand at songwriting. After finishing school, Creager left his hometown of Corpus Christi to attend Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, earning a degree in business. Following his time at SHSU, Creager took a stint at Texas A&M in College Station for a degree in agriculture–during this time, Creager continued to sharpen his musical and songwriting abilities, but kept his songs to himself–he didn’t perform in front an audience until age 26.
Creager worked as an accountant for several years in Houston, until he decided to pursue his dream of becoming a full-time musician. He packed his stuff, moved back to College Station, and joined a local country act. When the band Creager was playing in lost momentum, he took his future into his own hands and formed a band of his own. Creager, being a businessman, formed his own publishing company (a smart move when a music artist is their own songwriter) and released his first record, Having Fun All Wrong, in 1998. Having developed a crowd-rousing performance style, Creager was named “Entertainer of the Year” by the Texas Music Awards 2001. The rest, as they say, is history; every album Creager released after his TMA award found its way onto the Billboard charts, his latest effort Here It Is peaking at #7 on the Heatseekers chart upon its release.
With a music career spanning over 5 albums (presumably with another on the way), Roger Creager has been a steady, strong force in Texas Country in recent years, and resides in Texas as an indispensable fixture in the Texas music revolution. Whether you’re drinkin’ on a Friday night, in love, heartbroken, or floating the river, Roger Creager makes the perfect sound track for it all.
Creager brings his crowd-pleasin’ brand of Texas country to Granada Theater on Friday, September 9, and he’s sure to bring a ruckus and a good time with him as always–you don’t wanna miss this!
