Country music singer Matt Rogers has recently released a new single called ‘White Trash Royalty’ and the new music video dropped last week.
The Eatonton native told the Lake Oconee News he found inspiration for the new single when he was hanging out with some friends.
“We were just cutting loose and the song idea came to mind,” Rogers said. “It’s just about what we do as a friend group when we’re all together.”
Rogers highlighted that the idea behind the song is all about having fun. “I was writing a lot over quarantine and
“I was writing a lot over quarantine and it was one of those songs that needed to be on the new record,” Rogers said. “Most of the stuff I was writing was serious, but it was nice to have something fun to come out of the mix.”
The music for ‘White Trash Royalty’ was released on Friday, Sept. 3 on Rogers’ Youtube channel.
He said it took only a day to shoot and it was shot at a campground near Nashville.
“It was a fun process,” he said. “We got the shot list set up and it was a helluva lot of fun.”
Rogers has been working hard on his new record, which will be released in March.
“The most fun of all this is to see the fans react to something you’ve put your heart and soul into,” Rogers said. “When you write these songs, you spend countless hours in the studio trying to perfect it. So, to see the whole creative process come together is just amazing.” Rogers played three concerts back
Rogers played three concerts back in May at the Plaza Arts Center in Eatonton. He said it was a great experience and was elated that his hometown got to see him perform live, especially after the pandemic canceled a lot of his events.
“It’s so special to come home and play in front of a live crowd,” Rogers said. “That’s always one of my favorite things to do, which is to share new music with the people of my community before it’s been released.”
Rogers said he is planning something special when his next album is released.
“We’re looking forward to coming back there,” he added. “When the full record is released in March, that’s going to be our first show. However, this time we will have a full band playing. We’re going to do one night and I hope we can sell it out.”
