ABOUT Jameson Rodgers: iHeartRadio Music Awards Best New Country Artist nominee Jameson Rodgers is quickly cementing his place as one of country music’s most intriguing singer/songwriters. Not only does the Mississippi native currently find himself enjoying the success of his Platinum-certified No. 1 hit “Some Girls” and his follow-up Top 10 smash “Cold Beer Calling My Name” featuring label mate Luke Combs, but the 33-year-old is now on the cusp of releasing his debut album Bet You’re From a Small Town on September 17th. It’s all a part of a journey that began in 2010, when Rodgers moved to Nashville and started laying the groundwork of his career at a myriad of open mic nights in Music City.
Rodgers co-penned Platinum-selling hits for Florida Georgia Line (Top 10 single “Talk You Out of It”) and Chris Lane (No. 1 smash “I Don’t Know About You”), along with “Camouflage Hat” on Jason Aldean’s most recent album 9 and the title track of Luke Bryan’s latest release Born Here Live Here Die Here. Luke Combs came a-calling, and in 2019, Rodgers found himself in arenas of screaming fans, barely before he even had his own hit on country radio.
“Good Dogs” serves as the macho ode to man’s best friend. “When You Think of Mississippi” serves as a nostalgic trip down the dirt roads of Rodgers’ life. “Rolling Rock, Rolling Stones” is a song meant to be played on the dingy jukebox in the corner of that dingy bar down your street and “Desert” is meant to be played to soothe the hurting soul. And the title track, well, it proclaims Rodgers’ ultimate truth.
