About the Artists
Matt Rogers has reached a growing, global audience enamored with his raw, country-at-heart/blues-in-his-soul musical style thanks to weekly performances since 2018 at Ole Red in Nashville and a 200-date tour schedule across the U.S. sharing the stage with country luminaries Chris Stapleton, LoCash, Jimmie Allen, Brothers Osborne, Clint Black, Jake Owen, Cole Swindell, and more. The humorous and humble Georgia native has created a deep bond with his listeners through his emotionally gripping lyrics and unmistakable melodies. The Durango Boot ambassador is known for his energetic stage show, but he is equally at home in the writers’ room penning songs with some of Music City’s best tunesmiths and winning numerous awards including recognition from Nashville Songwriters Association, CMT, American Songwriter, and the Georgia Country Awards, which named him their Overall Artist of the Year. Now Rogers’ self-penned new music is poised to reach an even bigger audience since signing with Nashville-based Vere Music, with national distribution partner ADA. Fans and the music industry are taking notice including country music legend TG Sheppard, who opined that Rogers is “the real deal…the total package. A great singer, a great picker, and a great songwriter.”
“BORN TO A MAN IN A BAND ON THE BAYOU”
Alex Smith truly has music coursing through his veins. Surrounded by music from an early age, Alex grew up with a grandfather and father who both sang and played guitar. It wasn’t until the eighth grade that Smith caught the bug to play an instrument of his own. Picking up a guitar and learning songs on YouTube quickly led to playing at church and local bars.
In 2016, Smith made the big move to Nashville to pursue his songwriting dream. A few years later, Smith’s undeniable talent caught the attention of Edgehill Music Publishing where he signed his first publishing deal in 2019. Shortly after, he began a large-scale project with world renowned producer, Kent Wells. “I look forward to the release of my new songs,” Smith said, “featuring some of the greatest names in music: Sonny Landreth, Leslie Satcher, and of course, my dad, H.B. Smith.”
Smith has an incredible knack for writing which is something he is deeply proud of. Just like his idol, Dolly Parton, Smith vows to remain a “writer and story-teller first,” and use his music to give back to the people and places that built him.
