Matt Rogers (Q&A)!!!

1.    Hi Matt, can you tell me a little bit about yourself before you started singing career?A: After I graduated undergrad in NC, where I had really started writing music, I came home back to GA. I was pursuing a career in the medical field. I did a year or nursing school that wasn’t the right fit, followed by a lengthy job application to the GBI(law enforcement) that I did not get the special agent job offer I was after, until finally getting a degree in radiology (Medica imaging/x-ray). I was playing almost every weekend in bars throughout this process. I begin working in the hospital. It was then I was recruited to work for neurosurgeons and provide imaging for spine and brain surgery procedures. The music continued to grow, as did the gigs I was able to get. After the release of my single “I Was Raised”, I knew it was a career I wanted to pursue. I saved my money, came up with my plan, and moved to Nashville and haven’t looked back. 

2.    When did you start listening to country music?A: As far back as I remember. Definitely a product of 90s country. 

3.    When did you know wanted a career in country music world?A: When my single “I Was Raised” was so we’ll received and I heard it on the radio for the first time, I knew I wanted to do this for a living. 

4.    What is the background story behind your latest single “Peaches and Pecans?”A: I’m very proud to be from GA. I had the idea, and was then approached by Golden Pantry, after saying how much I loved their biscuits in another publication interview. They were looking to help out with a release so I was able to incorporate them into the song and the rest is history as they say. I always wanted a state pride song.

5.    Who are some of your musical icons?A: I have a vast and diverse inspiration group. I tend to lean towards songwriters though. The greats like Dylan and the Beatles obviously. But self made guys like Zac Brown, Jason Isbell, and some of these great current songwriters really give me sometime to strive for. 

6.    Is there anything new coming up with your music in 2019?A: Tons of new music and all the things that go along with that. We’re also breaking into some new markets to tour so looking forward to seeing more new places and faces!

7.    What are a few of your favorite venues to play at?A: I have several, but being where it all begin for me in Macon,GA is always great, or in my hometown of Eatonton,GA. The bluebird cafe in Nashville is always very special too.

8.    What is one of your favorite quotes?A: “If it we’re easy, everyone would do it”-my mother

9.    Is there anything else you would like to share? A: I appreciate you reaching out!
