Rocky Mountains and bucking bronc’s are defining characteristics of Jared Rogerson and his music. Ironically, it was a rodeo injury in 2007 that spurred Jared into taking his music more seriously. "I remember pulling myself up off the arena dirt and thinking, it’s time.
Jared has written songs from a young age, but his pursuit of rodeo and education has been in the forefront. Jared competed on the high school rodeo team riding bareback bronc’s and went on to earn a Bachelor’s degree with the support of academic and rodeo scholarships. Jared competed at the College National Finals Rodeo and continued at a professional level while earning a Master’s degree in Biology. His college education has since provided the opportunity to enjoy more time traversing the rugged backcountry for both work and pleasure.
With seventeen years of rodeo under his belt, thousands of mountain horseback miles behind him, and a diverse college education, Jared is outfitted to deliver what he calls ‘Western’ Country Music with refreshing originailty. Now with the release of his second album and his first Nashville studio recording, Jared has come into his own. “Peace, Love and Horses” is a modern cowboy-flavored vibe lyrically embellished with character and an honest edge, and deepened by the unmistakable tone of genuine experience. It features soon-to-be hit singles like Honky Tonk Halos, End of Days, Just One of the Guys, Addicted, Winter Baja Sun, and Have A Good Life.
“My music is about living life in a western circumstance. The West has raised-up its very own cowboys and hippies and everything in between. It’s my hope to capture it all.” Promoting rodeo and western tradition, teaching life’s lessons, and bringing forth a greater awareness of our wild surroundings are all part of a role that Jared is proud to fill. “In the end, my hope is to inspire others to dream big and then chase down those dreams. Life’s too short to ride a slow horse.”
