Part of the burgeoning, modern, underground, outlaw, country music field, Craig Gerdes is makin’ tracks and on the move. His last release, Smokin’, Drinkin’ & Gamblin’, has quickly gathered attention for a real honky-tonk, old-school, classic-country sound that embraces the heart and soul of contemporary outlaw country. Gerdes hails from rural central Illinois, and is now on the journey of constant touring through a club circuit that’s growing from this populist form of rebellion against the current crop of pop country music, while searching for real ties to real things through heartfelt songs. He got his start playing and singing in his dad’s band, wrote his first song at age 11, and hasn’t looked back since.
