Broken Bow Records rising star Jordan Rager made his Grand Ole Opry debut last Saturday, April 9, playing back-to-back shows on Country music’s most iconic stage.
“Playing the Opry is something I’ve dreamed about for as long as I can remember and on April 9th I was able to live that dream. A lot of things went into making that night special for me, but more than anything I’m so happy my family and friends were able to be there and see me play a song on the Opry stage that I had written. It’s truly a major highlight of my career and a night that I will never forget,” explains Rager.
The Loganville, GA native performed two songs in the legendary circle, including the sentimental “We Still Do” and his Top 40 current single, “Southern Boy,” which features guest vocals from superstar label mate Jason Aldean.
Country music heavyweight Eric Church headlined the sold-out early show while genre mainstay Phil Vassar was on the bill for both electrifying shows. Rounding out an incredibly momentous evening, Jordan’s uncle, a full-time musician with Opry member Connie Smith, sat in on drums for the rising star making it a family affair on stage.
Rager is currently on the road visiting Country radio in support of “Southern Boy.” The single has already received early critical praise and digital buzz with Spotify adding Rager as the “face” of their “New Boots” Country playlist, which tallies over 206k subscribers.
