Jordan Rager - Southern Boy

JORDAN RAGER At 15, this ambitious country newcomer from Loganville, Georgia taught himself how to play the guitar, started writing songs, and was performing at bars, clubs and county fairs while still under the age of 18. It was during this time that he crossed paths with Barry Williams, Jason Aldean’s father, who took Jordan under his wing and helped him to establish his first real connection with Nashville, a spot on Justin Moore’s “Off the Beaten Path” tour, and a record deal with Broken Bow Records. Jordan’s first album “Burning Gasoline,” an independently produced CD with twelve original songs by Rager, was released in 2012. That same year, he gained national attention as a contestant on the Voice for Team Blake, and Shelton described him as a “sure-fire country star in the making.” His debut single, “Southern Boy,” features guest vocals from Jason Aldean himself, who shared the sentiment with Jordan that the song was really something “special,” and would be a good one to sing together. Written by Luke Laird, Barry Dean and Jeremy Stover – “Southern Boy” is a tribute to a young teen from Chattanooga, Tennessee, named Cameron Scroggins, who died of cancer at the age of 16. The country-rock tune, celebrates life in the South and the fighting spirit of this youngster who “never lost his smile” despite the challenges of his illness. The song is already on Spotify’s United States Viral 50 chart, and is slated for his upcoming debut album for Broken Bow Records. Performing live is something Rager is particularly energized by and looks forward to doing. “When I go to a show, I want to be entertained just like everybody else….When the groove is going, the band is rocking and I’m rocking, then the crowd starts giving it back – that’s as good as it gets.” For more music and information,
