For those familiar with the impressive crop of young talent hailing from the great state of Georgia, Travis Denning is a familiar name. Frequently playing lead guitar with BBR Recording artist, Jordan Rager, Denning’s ability to write damn good songs and melt faces on the guitar make him the most versatile young artist in Nashville. For those who are less well-versed in the up-and-comers of country music, I introduce to you, Travis Denning, the diamond in the new country rough.
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:

At just twenty years old Jordan Rager has already accomplished a ton. He was discovered at age 15 when performing at a Susan G. Komen charity event. From there he’s appeared on NBC’s The Voice, been a staple on 94.9 The Bull out of Atlanta, gone on tour with Justin Moore, and gained a YouTube fan base over twenty thousand strong. Despite all the success, Rager is still as humble and hungry as ever. He recently signed a recording deal with BBR Music Group and expects his debut single to drop within the next couple of months. We talked with Jordan about his debut record, being on the road with Justin Moore, and any advice he had for young people looking to make it in Nashville.
2014 is in the books and it’s time to start focusing on the artists that we think will be making names for themselves this year. In 2014 it was Chase Rice and Sam Hunt who caused country fans to fall in love with their party friendly jams. As we look forward and try to predict who we think will burst into the spotlight we’ve highlighted five artists to watch in 2015.
