Creed Fisher is proud to be a redneck, placing his good ol' boy status at the center of his hard Texas country. He named his 2016 album "Rednecks Like Us," a sign that he's eager to embrace everything politically incorrect about country, but his music is firmly rooted in traditional country that stretches back to the days of Hank Williams.
A native of West Texas, Fisher began writing songs as a child, but he pursued football after high school, playing in the minor leagues for nine years. When his time as a player came to a close, so did his long-term marriage. Fisher channeled his pain into music, launching a professional career with the single "I'll Keep Drinkin'" in 2012. "I'll Keep Drinkin'" was soon followed by the debut album Down Here in Texas. Combined, the two strengthened his reputation in the Odessa, Texas region. A second album, Ain't Scared to Bleed, followed not much later.
Fisher continued to play Texas and in 2016, he released the full-length Rednecks Like Us. A series of singles, including "Come and Hold Me" and "That's Where I Stand," appeared in 2018.
