Any fan of Rogers, however, knows that the true magic he brings to the table is on stage. Rowdy, gritty, and simply a good time, Rogers knows no limitations once he’s in his element under the spotlight. The golden-toned crooner is commercial without compromise; what you see is what you get with Rogers, and fans undoubtedly can’t get enough. Invigorated with rawness and authenticity, this natural born storyteller captures snapshots of real-life experiences in 4K across the complete spectrum of emotions.
"There's nothing like playing in front of a live audience. Their energy becomes my energy, and the connection with them is authentic. It's inspiring to see fans consume a song and watch their reaction to it. They are the fuel." - Matt Rogers
The seasoned songsmith currently boasts 15 songwriting awards that serve as a testament to his signature hard-hitting lyricism electrified by his husky, rich vocals; his song, "Coal," has won several songwriting awards from NSAI/CMT, Music City Songstar, American Songwriter, Songwriting University, and Mid-Atlantic Song Contest. He achieved the top award from Music City SongStar for his song, "She Was Everything," as well as a finalist slot in the USA Songwriting Competition. Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI) and CMT selected his song “I Was Raised” for a songwriting achievement award, and it went on to be selected by NSAI as a Top 40 song.
After finding success as a self-proclaimed country up-and-comer, Rogers' original tunes landed themselves on an even larger platform in 2021 when he signed with Nashville-based Vere Music and national distribution partner ADA. His debut single released with Vere Music, "Fallout," about the painful aftermath of heartbreak, followed by the trust-testing "Be Like Him," and "Hurt Like You," a searing duet about the intersection of longing and regret caught the attention of hundreds of thousands of new listeners while simultaneously garnering significant media attention. His latest single's music video, "Billboard" had nearly 400K views just one month after its release.
"The Coal album was 100% from the heart. The music spans the range of faith, heartbreak, nostalgia, recovery, trust, silliness, and love -- all the sides of me. I've already begun planning for the next release(s) that are coming in 2023. I think this new music will continue to reflect real life--content that everybody can relate to. I can't wait to get it released."
In addition to finding a home at Nashville’s Ole Red (the Blake Shelton/Grand Ole Opry joint venture in the heart of Music City) with a weekly residency, Rogers energetic live show earned him invitations to play an extensive list of venues across the country and share the stage with some of country music’s hottest names including Chris Stapleton, Jimmie Allen, Walker Hayes, Clint Black, Clay Walker, Jake Owen, Cole Swindell, LOCASH, Brothers Osborne, Chris Janson, and Michael Ray.
Fans and major music industry icons are taking notice, including country music legend TG Sheppard who asserted that Rogers is “the real deal…the total package. A great singer, a great picker, and a great songwriter.” Rogers has also received recognition from industry tastemakers including Robert K. Oermann, who selected the title track of Matt’s EP, “Richest Place On Earth,” for Music Row’s Discovery Award. He praised the cut and called upon listeners, “extremely well written and sung with fire and conviction. Play this.” Songwriter/author and radio personality Devon O’Day, also took a liking to Rogers, letting listeners know that, “If you don’t know the name Matt Rogers, then you need to write it down. He’s going places.”
Fans have a lot to look forward to from Rogers; from constantly touring bigger and better stages, to planning new exciting collaborations, Rogers also excitedly anticipates a series of new singles set to hit speakers in early 2023.
