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.

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde’s This Town Talks tour gets rolling next month in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Then for the next 7 months she’ll be crisscrossing this nation playing shows from Georgia to Montana and everywhere in between.

So, with all that travel, and different locations, packing for a tour can present some challenges. Ashley shares one basic piece of advice when it comes to preparing for the road, “At first, learning how to pack for on tour…I really didn’t do a good job. I guess maybe I thought I was leaving for summer camp. So, I would spend a couple of weeks where I overpacked, and a couple of weeks where I under packed. Just let me tell you…if you have to choose between the two – overpack. You can put those clothes away when you get back.”
