June Night was written by a few friends of mine,
Evan Michael & Leah Burkey, both of whom are artists in their own right. Evan actually recorded & released the song back in 2010 but decided in 2014 that he wanted to steer away from Country Music & venture into the CCM genre. June Night sat & was eventually pulled from public access until 2016 when I, Charlie Rogers, asked to cut the song but first Josh Gleave, my producer, & me did some rewrites on the song itself. June Night always struck an emotional chord with me because much like Evan’s story, it is also very much my own. I guess that’s the beauty of music, it binds those who have been through similar experiences.

I decided this year instead of releasing an album or an EP
I wanted to release periodic singles. June Night for the Summer/Fall, Brave for the Fall/Winter, Too Many Miles for Winter/Spring. I made this decision in favor of the way music is turning, streaming. That being said any song I record I need to have a significant stake in, be in through writing, personal experience, or emotional attachment, I will not cut a song that I cannot relate to & that isn’t authentic to me as an individual. I strive for authenticity in my music, there’s enough fake in this world as it is.


I live in Nashville, so naturally the music scene here is booming.
Live bands at every bar, people chasing the dream everywhere you go, it’s electric & a little overwhelming at times. It’s a far cry from Kansas, where I’m from.

The music business is very much about connections;
it’s all about who you know, when you know them, & what you can offer them. I’ve seen people shoot up the ladder just because they have a family member in the industry or because they were able to pay their way up. It’s less about talent & more about the network of people you’ve built. That being said, the modern music industry can be daunting but we’re starting to see a world where people can make it without jumping through all the corporate hoops because of the fans they’ve made & the music they’ve created.

I’m going to answer this in two parts.
Someone who is dead & someone who is alive.

If I could spend five minutes with a person who had passed
I’d probably pick John Lennon. I am a huge Beatles fan & John has always been my favorite of the group. His writing style is much more introspective than that of George & Paul and I’d love to pick his brain, find out what made him tick.

Alive I would pick Emma Watson, simply out of immense respect.
She has done what very few celebrities have done, used her fame for the betterment of society as a whole. She draws attention to gender equality on a global scale through her work as the UN ambassador & through her organization Her For She. That’s something I strive to be, if I ever make any measure of success I want to use it to make this world better that how it was when I came into it. Change the planet on a global scale
