PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION

Creed Fisher at The OBT (Formerly called The Old Barn Theater).  21+All tickets are general admission standing except for a limited number of VIP tables for 4.Sometimes the best feel-good music is born from pain. Country music’s rebellious sensation Creed Fisher knows it well, tracing his musical, and personal evolution back to a very unlikely, yet specific point of origin - a little blue house. No, it’s not a metaphor, but a real place, and one decorated by hard times and a few bad memories. “It’s starting from rock bottom,” he says of the symbolism. “That’s what the blue house represents in my mind.” While the ghosts of that dark period are something he’ll never forget, Fisher didn’t let his energy get trapped in the past, instead choosing to recognize, process and move forward. All of it served him well in overcoming life’s little kicks in the ass, and along the way, delivering albums full of asskicking good times and chart-topping hits.  


He does however credit those days for reigniting the creative fire within and leading to a bold and unconventional career ascension.  “That eight years was the beginning of my struggle; the beginning of my music.” The little blue house, traumatic as it was, had a purpose in the greater developing picture of the man and the music he creates.  After his thirteen-year marriage collapsed, then thirty-three-year-old Fisher had to start over. “I was poor as fuck,” he recalls, “but I bought the blue house in Odessa. It was shithole but it was mine.” Then things seemed to get even worse, perpetuated by self-sabotage. “I kept screwing up,” he admits." Getting DWI’s, getting thrown in jail, being on probation for 18 months, all while I was in the blue house.”  As if that weren’t enough to break one’s spirit - another stint in the slammer. “I refused to quit smoking weed and told my officer it was my medicine. But then I ended up back in jail.” Creed Fisher was battered, but certainly not broken. “I straightened out.”

 

Influenced heavily by the wisdom of his grandfather and the musical tastes of his parents (from classic country to hard rock, George Straight to Ted Nugent), Creed Fisher’s childhood dream was to play music, but, as he asserts - “Life got in the way. I started writing songs just for therapy, to get things off my chest,” he says of the cathartic beginnings. “My music started in a dark place, but it developed from there.”  Reflecting on an unconventional entrance into the music business, he says “The odds were always against me.” From the get-go, Fisher’s maturity, attitude and a blue-collar background didn’t parlay easily into a scene largely ruled by young people, where social networking protocol was the law.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION

In the early ’90s, as a new brand of country music was commanding the airwaves, there was a First Time for Everything. With its debut album, Little Texas burst onto the scene with songs written, recorded, and performed exclusively by the members themselves, quickly becoming one of the top vocal bands of the decade. 


Nearly 3,000 shows and 8 albums later (with over 7 million units sold) and celebrating the 30th year of its debut appearance on the country music charts, it’s easy to understand why the group earned the moniker “Hardest Working Band in Country Music.” During its heyday, Little Texas racked up 11 Top 20 singles (with 3 Top 10s and 3 No. 1s) and received multiple Grammy, CMA and ACM nominations, winning the ACM for Top Vocal Group of 1993. To date, band members have continued to write or co-write, record, and play every note on every single they’ve released. 


“It’s amazing that the run we had was 30 years ago, and here we are, still out there touring and having a blast, if not the most fun we’ve ever had,” says Porter Howell (lead guitar and lead vocalist). “We are very grateful to still be playing these songs for fans and to look out and see people who could not have possibly been alive back then singing every word is so gratifying,” he adds. “’90s country music is still going strong, and we are thrilled to have a place in it.” 


From their debut single “Some Guys Have All the Love,” which provided the band its first top 10 hit, to the top 5 ballad “You and Forever and Me,” listeners have been blown away by the group’s intricately stacked harmonies, reminiscent of the vocal stylings of the Eagles. Lead guitarist Porter Howell developed a signature slide guitar technique that further delineated the band’s unique sound. 


Little Texas’ sophomore release, a juggernaut appropriately titled Big Time, produced the three chart toppers, including “What Might Have Been,” “My Love,” and the wildly popular “God Blessed Texas,” [which has just been rerecorded by Jonas Brothers frontman Joe Jonas for the HBO Max series, The Righteous Gemstones] bringing the group further critical acclaim and accolades. Big Time remains the band’s best-selling album, with more than 3 million copies purchased to date. 


Quickly designated as an arena act, the group stepped into the role of headliner in 1994 with the release of its third album. Kick a Little, featuring top 5 singles “Kick a Little” and “Amy’s Back in Austin,” would ultimately reach platinum status, selling over a million units. 


Little Texas often played more than 300 shows a year to packed venues across the United States and Canada. Fans richly rewarded the group with album and merchandise sales, while the industry showered the act with three Grammy nominations, plus awards for ACM Vocal Group of the Year and CMA Album of the Year for the band’s role in Common Thread: The Songs of The Eagles.
