Upcoming Trek Marks First-Ever Full Band Tour in the UK

SMALL TOWN DREAMS Hits Top 5 on iTunes Country Albums Chart 

Nashville, TN (April 14, 2015) – Critically acclaimed singer/songwriter Will Hoge is making his first-ever full band trek to the United Kingdom for seven headline tour dates across Scotland and England, beginning in September. Touring in support of his newest album SMALL TOWN DREAMS, the project is already garnering rave reviews and launched into the Top 5 on iTunes Country Albums chart. SMALL TOWN DREAMS is available now in the US and slated to be released to fans in the UK on June 15. 

Media critics and fans alike have been buzzing about the exciting new release of SMALL TOWN DREAMS with ROLLING STONE COUNTRY lauding the 10th studio album as one that "breaks down country doors…most satisfying album yet" and CMT calling it a "masterful piece of work that takes the simple beauty of everyday life and delivers it to the listener in a way we’ve never heard it before." Taking note of Hoge's real-life storytelling, MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL praises Hoge's style and craft, "plenty of country stars have tried to emulate the blue-collar ethos of the likes of Bruce Springsteen. It takes real grind-it-out living to capture the experience, and few in the modern Nashville realm have done so as successfully as Will Hoge.” 

“For years, I’ve wanted to bring the band over and play full shows in the UK. I'm excited now for folks to see the live show and hear the new album,” says Hoge.

The UK edition of the tour will make its first appearance at The Stables in Milton Keynes on September 4 and continue to stop at venues including the O2 ABC 2 in Glasgow, Bush Hall in London and more. 

UK Tour Dates Include:
9/4 – The Stables - Milton Keynes, England
9/5 –  The Picture House - Sheffield, England
9/7 – O2 ABC 2 - Glasgow, Scotland
9/8 – Night & Day - Manchester, England
9/10 – Bush Hall - London, England
9/11 – The Portland Arms - Cambridge, England
9/12 – Green Door Store - Brighton, England 

SMALL TOWN DREAMS is an authentic, genuine character story and depiction of small town life. Walking the country/rock line, the Nashville native revisits his upbringing with the eleven tracks on the new album including lead single and heartland anthem “Middle Of America,” which was highlighted on Sirius XM’s The Highway and terrestrial radio.
After producing several albums on his own, Hoge handed the reins to producer Marshall Altman (Frankie Ballard, Eric Paslay, Matt Nathanson). This project follows NEVER GIVE IN, which features his wildly popular song “Strong.” Selected as the musical backdrop for General Motor’s 2014 Chevy Silverado ad campaign, "Strong" sold well over 200,000 copies.

Breaking into mainstream country, the talented songwriter penned Lady Antebellum's “Better Off Now (That You’re Gone),” and co-wrote the Platinum-selling #1 smash “Even If It Breaks Your Heart,” recorded by the Eli Young Band. Catapulting Hoge into the national spotlight, “Even If It Breaks Your Heart” earned nominations for the 2013 GRAMMY Country Song of the Year, 2013 ACM Song of the Year and 2012 CMA Song of the Year.
