Rogers announces headlining tour
Tuesday, December 3, 2019
– Jameson Rodgers announced his headlining Grew Up in the Country Tour 2020, kicking off on Valentine's Day in St. Louis.
The 18-city trek wraps with a hometown show for Rodgers at The Lyric Theatre in Oxford, Miss., which he previously sold out in 2018.
"2019 has been a whirlwind year for me, signing a record deal with RiverHouse/Columbia, opening for my brother Luke Combs on his sold out arena tour all year, playing the Stadium at CMA Fest, launching my first single 'Some Girls' to country radio, and so much more," said Rodgers. "The band and I are so grateful for getting to make a lot of new fans this year, and we're looking forward to playing some longer sets and a lot of new music from my debut album. I've asked some of my favorite artists/friends to tag along and I'm really excited for the Grew Up in Country Tour next year."
Supporting Rodgers on select dates are Hunter Phelps, Drew Parker, Jordan Rowe and Sarah Allison Turner.
Rodgers' debut single "Some Girls" is at radio. He also helped write the number one song, "I Don't Know About You," recorded by Chris Lane. Rodgers also has a cut on Jason Aldean's just-released album 9 ("Camouflage Hat") and co-wrote Florida Georgia Line's latest Platinum-certified radio single "Talk You Out of It."
He is currently at work on his debut full-length album with producers Mickey Jack Cones, Chris Farren and Jake Mitchell.

Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: With or without band, Isbell satisfies
Usually, when an artist performs without his regular backing band, it becomes about mathematics of subtraction. That artist is armed with far fewer artistic weapons at his/her disposal, after all. In Jason Isbell's case, though, when he performed with just his wife and fiddler Amanda Shires, it was more about substitution than subtraction.... »»»
Concert Review: Grammy nominations aside, Yola, Kiah are the real deal

The clear winners... »»»
