In 1997, Roger Creager left an upwardly mobile position in accounting at a Fortune 500 company in Houston to pursue a life of music and poverty. Roger wanted to begin his musical journey and career in the same fashion that so many of his heroes had chosen. However, rather than moving to Nashville, Tennessee like most people would do, Roger took the road less traveled. Creager carried his hopes and dreams to the musical and cultural mecca of College Station, Texas. Merging his musical talent with his business background, Creager successfully created his own publishing company, No Cable Music, for releasing his own CDs. His traditional country music had a unique twist that resonated with the crowds, and he was named Entertainer of the Year at the 2001 Texas Music Awards.
For more than a decade, Roger Creager built a reputation on his distinctive brand of hard-core, rabble-rousing Texas Country music, on his rich, full-bodied voice that can carry a tune for miles, and on his exceptional ability to work thousands of Texans into a rabid frenzy with his voice and guitar, in the great concert tradition of Jerry Jeff Walker and Robert Earl Keen. Along the way, he’s been writing some mighty fine instant classics about family heirlooms, fields of bluebonnets, and late night trips to Mexico. Four albums, hundreds of thousands of road miles, and an ever-expanding fan base later, Creager is soaring toward the top of the Texas Music Scene.
