Charles Rogers, 22, Stilwell, Kan., writes and sings original country music chockfull of Mid-American authenticity. A Midwesterner through and through, Rogers was raised on country music and classic rock. He fuses these two classic genres to create a unique sound that both a new generation and more-traditional listeners can enjoy. He describes his music as “a fusion between modern country music and classic rock as well as a bit of pop. It can easily be categorized as Alternative Country or Country Pop/Rock.” Listeners may hear threads of Keith Urban or Jason Aldean. You also might be reminded of Little Big Town. The music embraces new country with one foot planted in traditional rock. Rogers’ music comes from the heart, filtered through a keen eye for detail. His music conveys a joyful innocence as he paints from a palette of rural imagery with lyrics that never stray far Midwest values.
