Jameson Rodgers Admits He Was a Late Bloomer When It Came To Music

Jameson Rodgers Admits He Was a Late Bloomer When It Came To Music

Jameson Rodgers already has a number-one song to his credit with “Some Girls” — and he’s at country radio right now singing “Cold Beer Calling My Name” with Luke Combs – but all this might not have happened if not for Jameson’s two roommates in college.

Jameson shares, “I was a late bloomer with music to be honest with you. I always loved to sing, but I didn’t pick the guitar up until I was 21…until I was a junior in college. So, I played baseball through Junior College, and then I went down to Southern Miss. to kind of finish school, and I had one roommate who played guitar, another roommate that kind of wrote…it’s called spoken word poetry. Sounds weird, but he was insanely talented at it, so, all 3 of us combined – I started learning lyrics from the one guy, and learning guitar from the other guy. Started writing songs…people were requesting these songs around the fire, or a party, whatever, and so I was hooked, so I moved to Nashville.”

Thanks to those two roommates and his own talent, Jameson Rodgers is now one of the hottest new names in country music.

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
