Jameson Rodgers Mixes Good Times & Deep Emotion With ‘Whiskey Train’ Three Pack (Review)

Jameson Rodgers concocts feel-good elixirs with his latest three-pack. “If you don’t like getting wild, you best get outta here,” he sings with the raucous, Dierks Bentley-style title track and opener. He barrels down the tracks, throwing back shot after shot. Friday night seems to fade with the midnight hours, as the booze hits and the good times roll. “I’m on that whiskey train!” he howls in the chorus.

In “If I Was Doing Better,” he shares a tale of heartbreak and finds himself turning to the bottle and good company to wash down the pain. “Got some ice in my cup and a good buzz coming on fast,” he sings. “With some damn good weather and a bottle of Jack / If I was doing any better, you’d be on your way back.”  A smirk curls his lips. He might be in the throes of pain, but he won’t let it get him down. He’ll simply keep on trucking and enjoying the moment around him.

It’s with the closing number, “Bury Me with My Guitar,” that Rodgers truly shines. It’s a tender, moving moment, allowing the singer-songwriter to demonstrate real emotionally-driven storytelling. “They say money, friends, and women come and go,” he sings. “It’s a damn good thing that it can’t talk / And I lost it once in Austin, thought I’d never get it back / Hell, I can’t be without it after that.” It’s music, namely his guitar, that’s most trustworthy in his life and something that just can’t be replaced. Rodgers’ voice alights on the melody with a certain softness yet carries the weight of the world. It’s what careers are made of.

Listen to the EP below.

Originally from Batesville, Mississippi, Rodgers enjoyed his first bit of tangible success with “Some Girl,” which climbed to No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Airplay chart in 2020. Signed to Columbia Nashville/River House, he has released three EPs and a full-length album, 2021’s debut Bet You’re from a Small Town. His latest three-pack follows several singles released this year, including “Mine for the Summer” and “Built for Heartbreak.”
