David Rogers (1936-1993) was a country music second-stringer whose career took several years to really take off. His first full album didn't come out until three years after he signed to Columbia, and while he scored a couple of Top Ten hits, Rogers couldn't crack into the Nashville front line. Throughout the 1970s, he skipped from label to label, but kept a constant though modest presence in the charts. Here's a quick look at his work...
