“Southerland is hitting each note dead on, and in a way which presages success in their future” shared Forbes, while Rolling Stone notes Southerland continues to usher in a “traditional country revival.”
Matt Chase and Chris Rogers wrote and collaborated for years before they signed to River House Artists/Sony Music Nashville in 2019 as Southerland. The singer/songwriters have shared the stage with Luke Combs, Lauren Alaina, Eli Young Band, Brantley Gilbert, Montgomery Gentry, Craig Morgan, Darius Rucker, Morgan Wallen and many more since meeting in 2016.
Everyone saw the duo’s potential in Charleston, S.C. native Matt Chase and small-town Washington, Ga’s Chris Rogers before they saw it themselves. Before morphing into the musical outfit now known as Southerland, the two had been playing college towns and dive bars together for three years. They met through mutual friends and their musical compatibility is what has kept the two working and playing together since 2016. They have developed, quite naturally, into a duo that relies heavily on lyrical content, while melodically blending classic and pop country. The two create music that takes the storytelling of traditional country music and gives it a relatable, modern country feel.
