Music City SongStar Winner, NSAI Top-40 songwriter and Georgia Country Awards Overall Artist of the Year, Matt Rogers, is no stranger to the stage. With over 200 performances a year playing venues across the southeast and sharing the stage with some of country music's hottest names including Blake Shelton, Old Dominion, Clint Black, Jake Owen, Cole Swindell, LOCASH and Michael Ray, Matt has built a devout fan base with his electrifying stage presence.
When Rogers isn't on the road he is writing music with some of Nashville's best songwriters. He was recently awarded the top award from Music City SongStar for his song, "She Was Everything." Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI) and CMT selected his song “I Was Raised” for a songwriting achievement award. It went on to be selected by NSAI as a Top 40 song.
The Georgia native creates a connection with his listeners through his emotionally gripping lyrics and unmistakable melodies. His talent has caught the attention of thousands of fans as well as country music legends like TG Sheppard, “[Matt's] the real deal…the total package. [He's] a great singer, a great picker and a great songwriter.” Rogers also received commendation from industry tastemaker, Robert K. Oermann. Oermann selected the title track of Matt's EP, Richest Place On Earth, for Music Row's DisCovery Award. Oermann praised the track saying, “Extremely well written and sung with fire and conviction. Play this.”
Rogers recently released the music video for the title track from his sophomore project, Richest Place On Earth. Emmy Award Winning production company, Tytan Pictures, filmed the video in Matt's hometown of Eatonton, GA. The video for “Richest Place On Earth” followed the release of his lyric video for his previous single, “Britches,” which debuted exclusively on The Boot earlier this year. The release came just in time for Matt's second appearance at CMA Fest 2018 where he performed on stages such as CMA's Spotlight Stage, Maui Jim Hard Rock Stage and the legendary Wildhorse Saloon. He also met fans from across the world inside Fan Fair X where he signed autographs at the Durango Boots booth.
In 2017, Matt became one of the first Brand Ambassadors for Durango Boots. “Matt has a rich, unique and bold style to his music that authentically connects to his fans which is the type of artist that represents our brand perfectly,” says Erin DeLong, Durango Marketing Manager. Breedlove guitars and 64 Audio also sponsor Rogers.
Matt's touring schedule is continuing to grow, spanning across the country. “I'm really excited to reconnect with my fans that have been supporting me for so long and to get the chance to connect with some new fans along the way,” says Matt. “I can't wait to get on stage and share my new music I've worked so hard on with them.”
