WATCH: Fiddlin’ Carson Peters, ‘Oak Creek’

May 10, 2016

WATCH: Fiddlin' Carson Peters, 'Oak Creek'

Artist: Fiddlin' Carson Peters
Hometown: Piney Flats, TN
Song: "Oak Creek" (Live at the Opry)

In His Words: “I love to visit the Opry. It was an honor to get to play with Ricky Skaggs that first night and it’s been an honor every time since then. My family was staying at a place called Oak Creek Campground in Pennsylvania, and I had this tune running through my head. I started playing it at the campsite, and my dad asked what the name of the song was. I said it didn’t have a name — that I had just written it right there at the campground. So we decided to call it ‘Oak Creek.'" — Carson Peters
