Nashville pop-country crooner Charlie Rogers is premiering his new song “Too Many Miles” exclusively for readers of The Boot. Press play below to listen.

“Too Many Miles,” Rogers' latest single, is, quite simply, a song about being a little too far away from the one you're in love (or lust) with -- but it goes a bit deeper than that. For Rogers, the lyric “I won’t care if the lights are on” is especially important.

“I know a lot of people, including myself, struggle with body image, but, to me, that line implies so much more,” says Rogers. “To me, that line says, let me see you as you are, without the weight of your perceived imperfections getting in the way. I want you to know that I want you as you are, without all the things, including darkness, covering you up, because you are beautiful.”

A Kansas-born, Nashville-based singer-songwriter, Rogers has been in Music City since 2010; he graduated from Belmont University with a degree in commercial vocal performance. Rogers has shared the stage with country icons and current superstars such as Ricky Skaggs and the Brothers Osborne.
