Here It Is (Thirty Tigers)

Roger Creager's fourth studio album drives hard into Texas country, his deep, scratchy vocals burning into a mix of honky-tonkers and ballads. "I'm From the Beer Joint" delivers the typical bar-burning party, while "I'm Missing You" wakes to the morning after. The Houstonian shows some growing versatility, but Here It Is largely just waves the same big guitar that country kickers have seen before.
