Since the dawn of time, there have been a lot of Creed Fisher songs to pick from. Creed has released dozens of albums and written hundreds of songs over the years, but only a select few are indeed “good” by our standards here at The Obelisk. In other words, they’re incredible enough for us to add them to our music player and listen to them on the regular. That’s why we took it upon ourselves to figure out which Creed Fisher songs are indeed the best of all time because if anyone were going to do it, it’d be us. To make this list as objective as possible—and do not lose our sanity over some fantastic Creed songs that didn’t cut—we decided to limit our list to a top ten. The thing is, though, picking just ten Creed Fisher songs out of dozens and dozens were no easy task. The final list we came up with is probably not perfect in the eyes of every single person reading this right now, but it’s the best we could do. So without further ado, here are The 10 Best Creed Fisher Songs of All-Time.
10. Where the Whiskey Still Flows
Where the Whiskey Still Flows is one of Creed Fisher’s most famous songs, and for a good reason. Like many of his classic tunes, it talks about heartache and hardship, but this time he looks at the subject with a slightly more positive outlook than usual. That’s because this song isn’t so much about looking back on days gone by when life was easy, but about using said memories to help you get through the hard times in your life now. It’s a perfect example of Creed Fisher putting his struggles into words to tell stories that many can relate to, and it’s done beautifully (listen to those lyrics).
9. A Few Good Ol’ Cowboys
A Few Good Ol’ Cowboys is one of several Creed Fisher songs that makes you feel good. The thing about this particular tune, though, is that it’s not so much about getting high and feeling great as it is about leaving the world behind for a moment and letting go of all your stress and anger because “we’re just a few good ol’ cowboys.” By telling us that we’re all ordinary people with everyday problems. In some ways, A Few Good Ol’ Cowboys is the anthem of the everyman, motivating those who have let day-to-day life get them down to shake off the blues and have a good time. It’s about believing in yourself, taking a step back from things, and ignoring all of life’s negative influences.
8. This Place Called USA
This is another Creed Fisher song that gets you motivated, but it’s slightly different. The lyrics here aren’t quite as simple as saying “Hey, let’s have some fun” or anything like that—it’s about being proud of the things you’ve done and where you come from because there are lots of people out there who don’t have what you do. It’s about making the most of everyday life and loving the experience because, yes, “this place called the United States is pretty cool.” This Place Called the USA is an anthem about appreciating all of your blessings and remembering where you came from so that you can better understand how far you’ve come and where you’re going.
7. If You Have a Right to Burn My Flag
If You Have a Right to Burn My Flag is a Creed Fisher song that sums up the hate and anger many Americans have toward those who don’t support the country as it should be supported. The lyrics here are vague enough not to offend anyone, but you can tell what the song is about from the title alone. This is Creed’s most famous song in large part because of its catchy riff and lyrics that are easy to sing along with.
6. Old Enough to Know Better
“Old Enough to Know Better” was released as the lead single from Creed’s second studio album entitled “My Kind of Car”. The song took off like wildfire reaching number one on the charts before spending three months at number one. It was also named Single of the Year by both Academy of Country Music and the Country Music Association in 1994. Total sales for this song reached over a million singles and helped Creed set the record for most weeks atop the charts by any artist: 52 consecutive weeks.
5. Bible On the Table
“Bible on the Table” is a song about Creed’s faith in the Lord and hope for the future. This track was released as a single to Christian radio stations, which reached number one in that genre. It was also featured in an episode of Beverly Hills, 90210, where Brandon (Jason Priestly) is seen singing along with it while driving around with his friends.
4. Be the Hope
“Be the Hope” is a great song with an inspiring music video. The lyrics are full of hope, passion and love, all wrapped in God’s glory. It was also featured in an episode of Beverly Hills, 90210, where Brandon (Jason Priestly) is seen singing along with it while driving around with his friends.
3. Simple Man
“Simple Man” was released as the third and final single from Creed’s debut studio album “My Prison”. It reached number one on Billboard’s Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks and Hot Modern Rock Tracks charts. It is also Creed’s highest-selling single to date, with over 1 million copies sold in the US. The song was featured on an episode of Beverly Hills, 90210, where Brandon (Jason Priestly) is seen singing along with it while driving around with his friends.
2. Hank Crankin’ People
“Hank Crankin’ People” is a song about how lots of people today tend to hurt others and read bad things into their actions. It was also Creed’s debut album, which reached number one on Billboard’s Top Country Albums and the Top Heatseekers charts.
1. Life of a Workin’ Man
“Life of a Workin’ Man” is about how much Creed wishes he could be with his love instead of having to work all the time. The song’s music video featured him playing at an outdoor venue where everyone was busy working or trying to keep cool in the heat. It was named Single of the Year by both Academy of Country Music and the Country Music Association in 1994.
In my opinion, Creed has been one of the best The Voice contestants of all time. I hope to see him on stage again soon with fantastic songs like these. Thank you for reading this article, and don’t forget to leave your thoughts in the comments section below.
