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]

In August 2006, Creager traveled to Africa and climbed Mount Kilimanjaro. In the summer of 2007, Creager traveled to France to take part in the Festival Country Rendez-Vous.[citation needed]
