Growing up in Mississippi, Jameson Rodgers loved two things: baseball and music. Both have served him well. Rodgers received a baseball scholarship and, while at the University of Southern Mississippi, Rodgers started to write songs, perform in bars and clubs with a band, developing a local following along the way. Rodgers then moved to Nashville and his career has continued to take off ever since. Earlier this year, he released his self-titled debut EP, Jameson Rodgers.
Jameson Rodgers’ sound is reminiscent Sam Hunt and Kane Brown, with a unique lyrical style. “Like You’ve Been There Before” features a catchy hook backed by a stellar band. It’s the perfect song to blast while on a road trip or getting ready for a summer night. Additionally, it also sounds good stripped down. If you’re in need of some relaxing music, check out the acoustic version below.
“Some Girls,” the EP’s lead single, is a break-up song with a twist. Instead of talking about how he handles a breakup, Rodgers talks about the different ways girls handle heartbreak. Featuring a unique drum beat, the verses are toned down but explode into a high energy chorus. Check out a preview of the track below, but be careful! It may get stuck in your head for the rest of the day.
Rodgers doesn’t just write songs for himself. He’s penned some notable tracks for other artists. After landing a publishing deal with Combustion/Atlas Music in 2014, Rodgers’ song, “Wish You Were On It,” was recorded by Florida Georgia Line. The song also showcases his unique lyrical style and Rodgers’ ability to write an amazing chorus.
