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.”

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.
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

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.
