Roger Creager (born July 25, 1971) is a Texas country music singer and songwriter originating from Corpus Christi, Texas.

Biography[edit]

Creager aspired to become a country music singer since he was six years old. He started learning how to play piano in the second grade and began to learn guitar as a student at Tuloso-Midway High School.[1] After high school, he attended Sam Houston State University and earned a degree in business. He then went to Texas A&M University in College Station to earn a degree in agriculture. In College Station, the Texas Music Revolution[clarification needed] helped him become a musician.[1]

Creager and his band invite fans every summer to travel with them to Playa del Carmen, Mexico.[citation needed] In August 2006 Roger traveled to Africa and climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro. Back home, the band continued to tour without Creager under the name The Kilimanjaros.[when?] In the summer of 2007, Creager traveled to France to take part in the Festival Country Rendez-Vous.[citation needed]

Creager currently lives in Houston, Texas.
