Roger Creager – Shay’s Spotlight Artist of the Week
Roger Creager could be doing a lot of other things; he chooses music because he loves it. It also allows him the luxury of traveling and doing fun and sometimes dangerous things. It's his fans and the music that always bring him back to the stage though.
Creager loves to be adventurous and do things like climb mountains, Mt. Kilimanjaro in Africa to be exact, surfing in Costa Rica, piloting his own plane, scuba diving, snorkeling, and deep sea fishing just to name a few.
I saw an interview with Creager a while back and he talked about the 'rush' you feel when your on stage and then having to fill that void when you're not on stage. That's what leads him to those crazy adventures mentioned above.
Born in Corpus Christi, Tx, Creager, has been drawn to music since he was a toddler. He learned to play piano as a kid but didn't pick up the guitar until high school. He went on to earn degrees in business and Ag but his passion for music took over especially while attending Texas A&M University. He released his first album, Having Fun All Wrong, in 1998. Not only was the title track a hit with audiences but it also included Everclear putting Creager on the road to success.
Seven albums later and he can pack a club with thousands of fans and have Fun All Wrong, doing the wild and crazy things he loves. Creager just released that 7th album, Road Show, last month. The first single from the album is already climbing the Texas Music Chart and is sure to be another huge hit.
