Frank Mandeville Rogers V (born in Florence, South Carolina) is an American record producer, songwriter and session musician. In 1990, Rogers made the trek to Nashville, attending Belmont University and graduating with a Music Business degree. While at Belmont, he met friend and future collaborator Brad Paisley.[1] After graduation, Rogers went to work for EMI Nashville Productions and opened up Sea Gayle Music Publishing with Paisley and Chris DuBois. The successful publishing company, where all three writers write, has had over 300 cuts and 28 number one songs. The three business partners, in late 2009, also teamed up with Sony Nashville to form Sea Gayle Records, with a roster that includes Jerrod Niemann.

Rogers has produced hits for several prominent country music performers since 1999, including Trace Adkins, Brad Paisley, Josh Turner, Hootie & the Blowfish lead singer Darius Rucker, Phil Vassar and Darryl Worley. His work has resulted in thirteen Country Music Association award nominations, with one win (for Album of the Year — Paisley's Time Well Wasted in 2006[2]). Rogers has also received five Academy of Country Music awards (ACM), as well as Billboard magazine's No. 1 Hot Country Producer Award from 2006–2010 and MusicRow Producer of the Year award in 2005, 2007, 2008 and 2009.

Frank’s songwriting credits include three Number One hits: "I'm Gonna Miss Her (The Fishin' Song)" by Brad Paisley, "Alright" and "This" by Darius Rucker. Other singles that Rogers co-wrote include Paisley's "Who Needs Pictures" and "Me Neither," Rucker's "History in the Making, Trace Adkins' "Don't Lie" and "Swing," Steve Holy's "Don't Make Me Beg," and "He Will, She Knows" by Kenny Rogers.
