“If you want someone’s attention—be different.” NSAI Top-40 songwriter and Georgia Country Awards Overall Artist of the Year, Matt Rogers, has used that approach since he began performing.
Matt’s emotionally gripping songs continue to tug at the heartstrings of thousands of fans as well as country music legends like TG Sheppard. “You're the real deal man. You are the total package. You're a great singer, a great picker, and a great songwriter. I will remember the first time I saw you and it was right here when you arrived. And you have arrived,” said Sheppard. Rogers has received multiple accolades for his achievements as a singer-songwriter. His song I Was Raised was honored by Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI) and CMT, selected by NSAI as a Top 40 song, and secured Rogers a finalist spot for Georgia Music Awards for Country Male Artist and Music Video of the Year. His song, Read My Mind was selected in October 2015 as an official entry to the International Songwriters Competition.
Durango sponsored artist Matt Rogers plans to get some dirt on his boots in 2017 with a new EP, a CMA Fest appearance with his own booth at Fan Fair X, and a full touring schedule performing for and meeting thousands of new fans across the country.
