Charlie Rogers Recounts His Coming Out Story in “Consequences of My Honesty”

Nashville, TN – Country artist Charlie Rogers has released his new single, “Consequences of My Honesty,” a groundbreaking piece about coming out and overcoming the obstacles of rejection. Using compelling lyrics and sentimental musicality, “Consequences of My Honesty” delves into Rogers’s wide spectrum of emotions after revealing he is bisexual, only to feel some of his loved ones were hesitant to accept. A heartfelt closing to Pride Month, the song may now be streamed on digital music platforms worldwide.

Produced by Jess Grommet and co-written by Charlie Rogers, Chase Coy, and Evan Michael, “Consequences of My Honesty” captures the anxieties of being true to yourself through its expressive storytelling and soul-stirring melody. This sincere sound Charlie Rogers showcases conveys the emotional rollercoaster while coming out as bisexual. When Rogers was working on the lyrics, he wanted to open the doors to the idea that coming out experiences are all different, but there is an in-between reaction that is not often spoken about. “Too often we hear stories from the media of coming outs that are polarizing; either the result is total acceptance or rejection,” explains Rogers. “Very few stories sit in the in-between, which is where I’ve found the majority of our stories, my own included, truly live.” With “Consequences of My Honesty,” Rogers has been open with revealing his story to the world as it was a battle between staying true to himself because his sexuality left him feeling like “a dirty secret” and his coming out was swept under the rug.

The Oregon-born, Kansas-raised musician’s quest for writing and performing music began at a young age. Rogers has always had a true passion for music and feels his purpose is to promote equity between his fans and himself to create a transparent country and singer/songwriter sound. Currently residing in Nashville, he has played alongside artists including Russell Dickerson, Brothers Osborne, and Janelle Arthur and has played CMA honors ceremonies for Charley Pride and Ricky Skaggs. His compassionate voice and poignant writing style allowed his musical drive to thrive and garnered him features in The Boot, Earmilk, CelebMix, and Countrypolitan Magazine. Charlie Rogers was also named one of the Hot 100 Unsigned Artists of 2023 by Music Connection Magazine.

“Consequences of My Honesty” entices listeners through its heartfelt melodies and raw lyrics. This relatable and touching song showcases the struggle for approval that the LGBTQ community faces daily. “Consequences of My Honesty” is out now on all digital music platforms.
