Beer, babes and an undying love for all things Texan are the regular themes addressed in the music of country singer Roger Creager, whos performing today at Cactus Music and the Record Ranch. The Corpus Christi native has released albums including I Got the Guns and Having Fun All Wrong, featuring toe-tapping, honky-tonk-ready songs like The Everclear Song (lyrics: Tequila dries me out / and beer just makes me fat / whiskey makes me nauseous / tell me who the hell needs that).
Today is the release date for Creagers newest album, Here It Is, five years in the making. The first single, Im from the Beer Joint, is standard Creager fare, but the album also features a few songs about love, loneliness and making mistakes, proving that being a Texan is a complex emotional experience of the heart not just the liver. 6 p.m. 2110 Portsmouth.
