WHO IS CARLY ROGERS?
Carly Rogers is a Vermont native who moved to Nashville to pursue a career in songwriting right after graduating high school. She co-wrote plenty of songs, but Everlasting Cowboy (Ryan Upchurch) might be her most notable work to date, reaching #1 on the Billboard charts.
Since then, she’s released five singles that are leading up to a debut album. Carly’s a tough artist who paves her own way and is experienced in all subgenres of country music.
OVERVIEW OF HER MUSIC
Carly’s most streamed work is Cowboy– a collaboration with Ryan Upchurch in which she’s featured on. Her own catalogue of music is rich in story and lyrics, highlighted by These Walls, Need You, and Somewhere Else. Drunk Side of Drinkin’ and Just Another show her range in style and themes, taking a complete left turn from her other work.
She plans to continually release music throughout 2021, which may be tied into a debut album. Carly takes deep themes head-on in her music and the stories behind each one have personal meaning to her. Her biggest strength is songwriting, but is complemented perfectly with some of the best vocals in the new crop of country artists.
WHY SHE WILL BE BIG
There’s a talented and much-needed crop of female country artists coming up in Nashville, highlighted by names like Lainey Wilson and Ingrid Andress (among plenty others). Carly is firmly rooted in that group. She’s extremely well-known and well-regarded in songwriting circles and has already caught the attention of major outlets like Raised Rowdy and In The Round.
With a strong slate of songs released in 2020 (and a couple from 2019), Carly is well on her way to exploding onto the mainstream Nashville scene. You’ll also be able to find her name on plenty of upcoming songs in the form of writing credits and features.
