Jameson Rodgers Admits He Was a Late Bloomer When It Came To Music

Jameson Rodgers already has a number-one song to his credit with “Some Girls” — and he’s at country radio right now singing “Cold Beer Calling My Name” with Luke Combs – but all this might not have happened if not for Jameson’s two roommates in college.

Jameson shares, “I was a late bloomer with music to be honest with you. I always loved to sing, but I didn’t pick the guitar up until I was 21…until I was a junior in college. So, I played baseball through Junior College, and then I went down to Southern Miss. to kind of finish school, and I had one roommate who played guitar, another roommate that kind of wrote…it’s called spoken word poetry. Sounds weird, but he was insanely talented at it, so, all 3 of us combined – I started learning lyrics from the one guy, and learning guitar from the other guy. Started writing songs…people were requesting these songs around the fire, or a party, whatever, and so I was hooked, so I moved to Nashville.”

Thanks to those two roommates and his own talent, Jameson Rodgers is now one of the hottest new names in country music.
