"What a ride!! Wanna thank my bud Jameson Rodgers for believing in this song and all the label peeps for sticking with it and taking this thing all the way. So happy I get to share my 2nd #1 with my boys Jake Mitchell & HARDY...been making music with 'em for a long time," CJ posted on his Facebook page.

A native of Baton Rouge, Solar will be heading home this weekend, where he and singer/songwriter Brent Anderson are scheduled to perform at the Boos & Booze LSU/Auburn pre-game party at Point Marie Baton Rouge on Saturday, October 31.

Respected music critic, author and historian Robert K. Oermann raved about CJ's most recent hit "Watered Down Whiskey" in MusicRow Magazine: "The production sounds bigger and beefier this time around, and he's singing with renewed vigor. As we've come to expect from him, it's also quite well written."

He has shared the stage with the likes of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Chris Janson, Aaron Watson, Gary Allen, 38 Special, Hank Jr. and others.
