I have a really great idea. I think I want to buy a radio station. And that radio station would be dedicated to playing country songs, by talented country artists, that for whatever reason – other radio stations aren’t playing.
OK, I realize I don’t have the money or the means to get a project like that off the ground. However, if I did, one of the names you would see on my playlist would be Jason Rogers. I’ve written about him before. I have his debut CD. And I like him.
Jason has been in the music business for quite a while. In 2007, his song “Breath Into Me” was named the 2007 Country Music Song of the Year at the VH 1 Save the Music Competition. His self-titled debut CD has seven original songs among the 12 songs it contains.
While I haven’t heard him on the air anywhere around here, apparently other stations are playing his music. And the proof is in the charts. Jason Rogers is on International, US, Australian, Canadian, Independent and Texas Country Charts.
I have a lot of artists that I would play on my ‘designed to discover new talent radio station’ (that we all know will never materialize). But if it did, you would for sure be hearing Jason among the artists I think has a future in country music.
Here’s an interview that was done with Jason Kelly O’Mara at WAGM TV in Presque Isle, Maine.
Time to head out of here for a while. You guys have a great Tuesday. Drop me a line, anytime! Talk to you all soon.
