Award-winning songwriter Matt Rogers has one of the most unique sounds in country music. With an extensive tour schedule playing venues across the country and sharing the stage with some of country music’s hottest names including Clint Black, Clay Walker, Jake Owen, Cole Swindell, Chris Stapleton, LOCASH, Jimmie Allen, Walker Hayes, Brothers Osborne, Chris Janson, 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. 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. It went on to be selected by NSAI as a Top 40 song.
The Georgia native 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.”
Throughout his career, Rogers has created a connection with his listeners through his emotionally gripping lyrics and unmistakable melodies. Matt has been steadily releasing music since the 2017 release of his critically acclaimed sophomore EP, Richest Place On Earth. His single “Peaches and Pecans” pays homage to Georgia, where Rogers was raised, and was played at all of the University of Georgia home games at Stanford Stadium during their 2018 season.
In 2019, Matt’s single “Burn The Boat” made waves with industry and fans alike. It landed on Buzzfeed’s “Top 10 Hottest Country Summer Jams” alongside artists such as Luke Combs and Carrie Underwood. The release followed Matt’s third appearance at CMA Fest where he performed on several stages, including Hard Rock and Wildhorse Saloon. He also met fans from across the world inside Fan Fair X where he signed autographs at the Durango Boots booth.
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.”
