Jordan Rager has been through it all. He's weathered every possible high and low, and so his upcoming releases feel not only special but downright triumphant. Expected later this year, the collection of songs was born out of his willingness to step back and reassess his life. Its themes of celebration of small-town life, heartbreak, love, loss and simply living in the moment are woven into a rich, electric guitar-soaked snapshot of what it means to be country right down to his core.
A down-home country boy in every way, Rager was born and raised in the tiny rural community of Loganville, Georgia, which lies just 30-miles west of Atlanta. He's the son of a preacher man, and his early roots of singing in the church instilled him with both a great sense of worship and an unwavering passion for performing. It was one crisp Sunday morning when he was a wide-eyed 11-year-old that Rager's life changed forever; at the urging of his father, he took to the church stage for the first time to sing and was immediately struck by music's innate power. And he's never looked back.
