If you listen to a just a few tracks from his debut album, you might think Creed Fisher was born with a guitar in his hand. One after another, his songs are so relevant today, yet steeped in tradition that you may think you missed out on a classic that everyone else already knows. However, this West Texas native only picked up a guitar three short years ago to start writing and performing. And with nothing more than some hard times and soul searching, Fisher weaves a familiarity into his songs that is more often found in the timeless hits of well known artists.
Country music’s rising Outlaw Country star, Creed Fisher reminds fans to never lose sight of who you are, where you're from, and never be afraid of working hard to earn an honest living on his latest musical manifesto This Ain’t the Hamptons.
“I know I say it often but this album is truly some of my best work to date,” he proclaims of the brand new collection. This much anticipated follow up to 2022’s Rebel in the South is timed perfectly for country music consumers who are seeking that repopularized sounds of Outlaw and Traditional Country. The album has its own distinguished Red Dirt vibes. “I’ve never been this excited to drop a country album honestly.”
“It de?nitely has a bit more country rock sprinkled in than my recent two albums, Whiskey and the Dog and Rebel in the South, which consisted of honky tonk, twang,” Fisher says of the vibe. “On this album, the country tunes range from country rock to traditional country, out to outlaw country.” Put another way, he explains, “This Ain;’t the Hamptons de?nitely has everything from a Hank Williams vibe out to the edgier rock feel that's similar to what you would expect from Kid Rock.”
Along with celebrating blue collar sensibilities, patriotism and fun-loving simple pleasures that are staples of Fisher’s music, this record comes at a time where country music consumers' interests in bringing back the foundational roots of traditional country music are at an all time high. Timing is everything, and Fisher declares “This was the perfect album for true country music fans that miss that less modernized sound of old country music. If I’d said it three or four albums ago - they wouldn’t have heard it.” He’s con?dent the music and messages on This Ain’t the Hamptons will connect with the majority of Americans, but especially those who love country music and live the lifestyle. “They’re gonna love to hear this one.”
Fisher also promises thematic diversity across the album’s fourteen tracks. “It’s got something for everybody.” He cites songs like “One of ‘Em” and “Lowdown & Lonesome” covering everything from odes for the blue collar Americans and revealing the good, bad and unfortunately truths of being a full time touring artist. The album also gives the Creed Fisher name a face lift as he levels up his branding and marketing, putting his permanent stamp onto the industry as the newest up and coming country music star.. Fisher credits the whole tone of This Aint the Hamptons originating with the song “One of ‘Em,” which is the ?rst single. “My buddy Nate Kenyon pitched me this song and after listening, I made some tweaks to the lyrics and knew immediately, ‘Man this one has to make the cut for this album!’ Everything came together into a production that exceeded even his own highest expectations. “I’ve never been this excited to drop an album,” and con?dently points to a particular song that will be a shooting star, the third single to be released from This Ain’t the Hamptons. “Lowdown & Lonesome”, which he predicts will be one of his fans' favorites on the album.”
“I think we went to the next level and people are going to feel the same way. We’re trying to make sure everything we put out is badass.” Creed Fisher’s This Ain’t the Hamptons pre-orders launched June 26th and the album is set to release September 8th, partners with a nationwide tour for the remainder of this year.
