“It’s an honor to be recognized by Music City SongStar. This was one of the most honest songs I had ever written. It’s tough dealing with that first real heartbreak, and certain relationship situations,” says Rogers. “Songwriting has always been a way for me to express that. It’s nice to know folks can relate to it.”
She Was Everything showcases heartbreak from a different point of view. It’s a personal song from Rogers that describes a time in his life where he had to make a difficult decision to follow his head or his heart. “She was all I could’ve wanted, anything a man would need. On paper it was perfect, as far as anyone could see. When someone really loves you and they give it their all that’s a hell of a thing to lose. She was everything, but she wasn’t you,” sings Matt.
