Frank Rogers, founder and president of Fluid Music Revolution, and his wife Jessica recently made possible a $50,000 scholarship endowment at Belmont University’s Mike Curb College of Entertainment and Music Business. Rogers graduated from Belmont in 1994 with a degree in music business.
“I was a Belmont scholarship recipient, and I want to afford the same opportunity to other students,” said Rogers. “I want to support students who will be a part of a healthy, creative future for the music industry. Belmont is a unique school with unique opportunities for students. Giving to Belmont allows students to learn, grow and experience things they could not do anywhere else in the world.”
“Belmont is so grateful to have alumni like Frank and Jessica who are investing in the lives of young people who share their passion for music,” said Sarah Cates, Director of development and industry relations for the Curb College. “Like scholarships played a role in Frank’s education, it’s inspiring to see someone pay it forward out of their gratitude.”
Born in Florence, South Carolina, Rogers is a producer, songwriter, musician, publisher and label exec who has worked with countless artists throughout his career, including fellow alumni Brad Paisley, Brandy Clark and Josh Turner, as well as Carrie Underwood, Chris Stapleton, Dolly Parton, Darius Rucker, Sheryl Crow and Darryl Worley. He has achieved 40 No. 1 songs, more than 70 Top 20 songs, and multiple RIAA certified Multi-platinum, Platinum and Gold records. He has received 18 CMA award nominations (with one win), 27 ACM award nominations (with five wins), and has been named Billboard‘s No. 1 Hot Country Producer Award five times (2006–2010) and MusicRow Magazine Producer of the Year four times (2005, 2007, 2008 and 2009).
