The best kept secret in music

Winning a national competition doesn't mean instant success, but country music singer Dave Rogers of Chugwater, Wyoming says he's hoping his recent award will help keep his refrigerator filled.

Rogers was named entertainer of the year at the Country Music Association fo America's first awards show in California. The organization is a coalition of state groups that tries to promote the work of up-and-coming performers. The contest should not be confused with the televised event from Nashville that honors country music recording stars.

The performers had seven minutes at the Memorial Day weekend contest to convince the judges of their talent.
"It was incredibly hard. It's just such a short time to try to work up a show that will be entertaining and complete in seven minutes," Rogers said. - Rocky Mountain News

Dave Rogers will return to the Silver Dollar Bar next week, but this summer his show has a difference.
Last month Dave was named "Entertainer of the Year" in the Country Music Associations of America first national awards show after winning both local and regional competitions.
The goal of the CMAA is "to generate a country music 'grass roots' movement which will country music-ize every nook and cranny throughout the entire United States of America," according to CMAA Executive Director Ralph Hicks. - Jackson Hole Guide

Dave Rogers grew up in a musical family. He and his musical brothers- Will, Danny and Shane- were known as the band the Rogers Brothers. Now the brothers are Danny Rogers and the Chugwater Band while Dave, who is from Chugwater, is pursuing a solo career.
Rogers and his songwriting skills landed him a trip to the regional competition for the Colgate Country Showdown Oct. 23.
He had won the local and statewide country music competitions, which included the states of Wyoming and Colroado. The contest is similar to "American Idol". - Wyoming Tribune Eagle
