Oliver John-Rodgers.

Raised in Virginia but now living and working in Music City, Oliver John-Rodgers is a great example of the new Nashville — an artist that doesn't fit any one mold. The music on his stylistically diverse new album, Nashville Demos, ranges from grunge to alt-country. What resonates most, though, is that John-Rodgers doesn't take himself too seriously and exhibits a wicked wit. Hear two songs from Nashville Demos in this segment.
