Ryan - Lead vocals Frontman
After serving his country with the Army in Iraq he returned to Minnesota and began his singing career performing with several successful country bands.
Ryan has shared his talent at many venues across the Upper Midwest, opening for National Acts such as Craig Campbell, Emerson Drive, Steel Magnolia, Scarletta, The Jacob Martin Band, Phil Vassar, Katie Armiger and Wynonna Judd.
You will find Ryan is a powerful and passionate singer who moves you with every song he sings. He enjoys meeting and greeting all old and new friends/fans at every show.
Hoss - Guitar and Vocals
Hoss has been involved with local country outfits that have opened and played with national artists like Josh Gracin, Keith Anderson, Joe Nichols, Love and Theft, Thompson Square, Steel Magnolia, Jon Rich, Sawyer Brown, Frankie Ballard, and David Nail (but not Toby Keith because he cancelled that event which Hoss is still haunted by to this day) Being close to these artists and talking with their musicians has given Hoss a unique perspective he applied to the music he has been writing.
He can make people laugh with his sarcastic sense of humor, while taking things quite seriously when put to a task. Now he heads into Copperhead Creek with the right musicians to put on a show that every venue will love to have back.
Hoss approaches music out of a heart of service. His expertise and professional abilities make him a dynamic and sought-after musician and is aware of the privilege he shares with others who are able to do what they love.

From his humble roots growing up in a small town in central Illinois,
Joe's versatility and passion for playing drums has led him to
performing in numerous successful bands of varying styles. A veteran
of the Twin Cities music scene, Joe has occupied the drum chair for
the bluesy pop-rock band The Hillcats, the pop-funk band Search Party,
the variety band Atlantis--which included a stint performing aboard a
cruise ship in the Caribbean--the ABBA tribute band Abbasalutely, the
blues band Mojo, and the eclectic pop band A Series of Clicks and
Joe then finally settled into what he now considers his most beloved
style of music--country music--while playing in the band Daisy and the
Dukes. The band performed throughout the Upper Midwest at virtually
every country venue imaginable, including opening up for legendary
singers Kix Brooks of Brooks & Dunn and Neal McCoy at Moondance
Jammin' Country Fest in addition to having shared the stage with

An in-demand drummer, Joe has also been featured in Modern Drummer
magazine and has taught private lessons for over 15 years. His wealth
of experience and talent are clearly evident in Copperhead Creek as
his slinky grooves and rock-solid backbeat never fail to bring a crowd
alive and out on the dance floor.
