BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – Multi-hit country music songwriter and Nashville artist CJ Solar stopped by the BR Proud studio this week to visit with FOX 44 / NBC Local 33’s Chad Sabadie.
Solar co-wrote his buddy Jameson Rodgers’ debut single, “Some Girls,” which hit #1 on the national country charts this fall. The accomplishment marks CJ’s second #1 song as a writer, following his first chart topper with Morgan Wallen’s “Up Down” featuring Florida Georgia Line.
A native of Baton Rouge, CJ grew up with Country, Southern rock and Delta blues pumping through his veins. He has shared the stage with the likes of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Chris Janson, Aaron Watson, Gary Allen, 38 Special, Hank Jr. and others.
As a songwriter, CJ won a “Songs I Wish I’d Written” trophy from the Nashville Songwriter Awards for co-writing Morgan Wallen’s #1 hit “Up Down.”
CJ co-wrote Jason Aldean’s “I Don’t Drink Anymore” and has had cuts by Jerrod Niemann, Justin Moore and others. Taste of Country named CJ as one of their “5 Country Artists to Watch,” and Rolling Stone Country listed him as one of their “New Artists You Need To Know.”
