Cash Creek started out as Silver Creek in the small "don't blink or you'll miss it" California town of Pope Valley. These longtime friends threw together a band and began playing small events around town and the Pope Valley Farm Center. Before long, the band's name caught the west coast wind and Silver Creek became one of the most requested bands for almost every west coast stage you can think of. Word spread pretty quickly among label and industry reps, phones starting ringing and the buzz was all over Nashville. The guys headed to Music City to do some networking and performing. This was where Silver Creek ended and Cash Creek was born. Two of the members decided it was time to pack up and move east to Music City, one of those members being Kimo Forrest. Kimo made the move and set up his own garage studio and began playing around town, eventually working with artists including John Michael Montgomery, Trace Adkins and his current regular gig as the guitarist for the legendary super group, Alabama. It was while on tour with John Michael Montgomery that he established a friendship with fiddle/mandolin player Steve Stokes. The music these two created together was something special, a sound quite unlike anything in today's modern country and with the addition of two more of Kimo's close friends and musicians from Pope Valley, drummer James Blaylock and bass player Monty DeVita, Cash Creek was on their way.
Since moving to Nashville, Cash Creek has released 6 albums and 3 charted radio singles. Singles released to radio include "Even Angels Have Bad Days", "Worth a Woman", "One Wave at a Time", and "The Hard Way." Cash Creek was also honored with a nomination for 2016 ICMA Award for Mainstream Country Duo. Unfortunately they did not take home the win, but this is just a stepping stone on the path God set them on and that path only leads to big things. These guys didn't come together by chance, they came together by design. Their latest single, "The Hard Way" released in 2017 currently sits at the #3 position on The Iceman's New Artist Top 40 Country Chart and keeps gaining ground. "The Hard Way: Final Chapter" EP was released on December 15, 2017 and getting some great feedback from listeners on social media.
