In an interview with last year, Rogers opened up about his career longevity and musical influences.

“I’m a country singer whose had a lot of other influences and I think that’s why I did songs like ‘She Believes In Me,’ ‘You Decorated My Life,’ ‘Buy Me a Rose,’ because coming from jazz I had that experience of singing that kind of music,” he said. “Country music wasn’t big in New Jersey and up in this area until I started doing songs like ‘Through the Years’ and ‘She Believes in Me’ and I think they saw something in country music they liked. Country music is really the white man’s rhythm and blues. It’s where all the pain is. Once you get to country you can’t go back because there’s no other music that’s that honest.”
