Jordan Rager has released his first single as a part of BBR Music Group with “Small Town Skyscrapers.” The track details how no matter where he goes he will always “look up to those small town skyscrapers.” It is something like a Jason Aldean song in its production with its mid-tempo heavy guitar sound, and showcases Rager’s pronounced twang. For a debut single, this was a good choice in that it does not fall into the cliche party category yet is still a fun listen. Congrats to Jordan and check it out on Spotify or buy it on iTunes now!
There’s no recorded version available to listen to on YouTube yet, so this live performance off of Jordan’s official YouTube page will have to do. Take a listen:
