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. Here It Is has Roger Creager laying his cards on the table with thirteen songs that are arguably his best batch yet.
Andie Kay Joyner and Heather Stalling had to experience life before they felt ready to write about it. When they met in the early 1990's, both were already accomplished musician/vocalists. Stalling was an award winning fiddler, coming off a two-year run as a support player in Branson, MO. Joyner was still a teenager, but had sung in front of thousands of people at countless performances. Each had grown up in musical families that exposed them to bluegrass, folk, and traditional country music.
