Mississippi native, Jameson Rodgers, has been dreaming of the day he can finally release his debut album after working hard to achieve it for 11 years in music city.
Now that day is finally here and Rodgers delivers his own fresh take on country rock with epic, arena-ready productions across the 15 tracks. The opening number, One Day has an incredible outro with big drum hits and electric guitar solos ramping up the energy, giving us a taste of what’s to come.
The stripped back Merle Haggard and Good Dogs meanwhile, show Rodgers versatility and a softness and vulnerability is audible in his voice. One of the highlights is Rodgers top 10 single Cold Beer Calling My Name which features label mate Luke Combs. In this song, Rodgers displays a likeness to early Jason Aldean, I like the electric guitars and the subtle addition of the banjo in the chorus, following on from that is Some Girls which was a number one hit on the country airplay charts. It’s easy to see why with the clever lyrics and rhythmical melodies in the chorus.
To conclude, the new kid on the block has delivered with his debut album and just like the recently released singles, I expect this record to do very well in the country albums chart.
