A subtle veneer of truth and honesty is all it takes for artists to connect with fans. Rising country star, Jordan Fletcher takes this concept to the next level, cementing his songs firmly in an honesty even obvious to casual listeners. Fletcher’s, current single Rather Be Broke, is a prime example of Fletcher’s pure authenticity. Rather Be Broke, is a love story rich with detail that showcases Fletcher’s love for his life and everything he wouldn’t trade it for.
Recently, we had the chance to chat with Fletcher about his musical journey, Rather Be Broke, and his EP due out later this month.
Worlds of Country: When did you know that music was something that you wanted to pursue?
Jordan: I started playing drums when I was 6. Then I played in church and bands throughout high school but I didn’t start thinking about pursuing a career in music and moving to Nashville until I was about 20.
Worlds of Country: Once you knew, what was your first step towards making this dream a reality?
Jordan: The biggest first step for me was moving to Nashville in 2016.
Worlds of Country: How would you describe your musical style?
Jordan: Honestly it’s taken some time to settle in to a style but I’d say it’s Florida east coast country.
Worlds of Country: It seems being honest in your music is very important to you, why is finding that authenticity so integral in this industry?
Jordan: I think there are a lot of fads that come and go in the music industry but you can’t really argue with a true story.
Worlds of Country: You were recently named a Highway Find by SiriusXM The Highway, what was your reaction to hearing the news and what does it mean to you?
Jordan: I was absolutely blown away to be named with so many iconic artists. It’s such an honor to get any radio play in the first place so to be a Highway Find is massive and it’s been a huge platform for my music already.
Worlds of Country: What’s the story behind your current single, Rather Be Broke?
Jordan: “Rather Be Broke” is a love song to my wife about the fact that we don’t have much money. Our cars are a little beat up and our couch is a hand-me-down from Kelly’s parents, but I wouldn’t trade what we have for all the money in the world.
Worlds of Country: What’s next for you?
Jordan: On Friday, January 28 my new EP True Stories will be available to buy or stream everywhere!
