Will Hoge Schedule
Americana singer/songwriter Will Hoge proves his dedication to his craft time and time again.
Since embarking on his music career in the late 90s, Hoge has put in the miles and earned his title as road warrior. Soldiering
on to meet the demands of a rigorous touring schedule, Hoge muddled through the chilling winter months in an RV with no heat
and survived a nearly fatal scooter accident in 2008. He also issued albums that were well received and with some that disappointed
in the way of commercial success. All in all, Hoge certainly knows the real meaning of what it is to persevere and forge ahead.
fans appreciate his over-the-top efforts. This seasoned musician gives fans the Southern rock experience they crave with tunes
like "All Night Long" and "Strong." Hoge said, "I'm a rock 'n' roll guy at heart. That's just where I come from. My dad had
grown up with a record collection that was The Beatles, The Stones, Zeppelin, Hank Williams, Otis Redding, Dylan... all of
those things. That's an easy place for me to go, and that's very natural for me. But I'm lucky that my sound can't be pigeonholed.
Being born in Nashville, I never really saw a dividing line between rock and country. I like the stories each tells, and they're
both a huge part of who I am."
True to his work ethic, Will Hoge is back at it and can be found this year at places
like the Chippewa Valley Rock Fest in Cadott, Wisconsin; Creek Fest in Cherokee, Iowa; World Cafe Live in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania;
Highline Ballroom in New York, New York; and more. And, don't forget that you can keep an eye on all of Will Hoge's live shows

Will Hoge Background
Hailing from Tennessee, Will
Hoge left his Nashville suburban home of Franklin to pursue his studies in history at Western Kentucky University. But it
was music that pulled him back to his roots and he moved to Nashville to put together a band. Hoge then sharpened his talents
by making the rounds at bars/clubs in the South. He put out All Night Long in 1999, before signing on with Atlantic Records.
Carousel served as his official first album cut with Atlantic's support. The album dropped in 2000 and was followed by Blackbird
on a Lonely Wire in 2003. After disappointing album sales, Hoge asked to get out of his contract and was granted the freedom
of becoming a free agent. Hoge then focused his efforts on a rigorous tour schedule - comprised of over 200 shows yearly -and
issued a number of independent releases. Rykodisc took notice of Hoge's work ethic and inked a deal with him. Draw the Curtains
was Hoge's fourth studio album, dropping in 2007. Efforts were made in 2008 to work on another album but came to a halt when
Hoge was severely hurt in an accident. After going through months of physical therapy, Hoge wasn't able to get back into the
studio until 2009, putting out The Wreckage later that same year. In September 2011, Hoge released his seventh studio effort,
aptly named Number Seven. In 2012, his writing collaboration with Eric Paslay paid off with Country Music Association (CMA),
Academy of Country Music (ACM) and Grammy nods for Best Country Song. The tune, "Even If It Breaks Your Heart," was the leading
track on Life at Best - the Eli Young Band's album. By the close of 2012, Hoge's EP Modern American Protest Music arrived,which
featured "Ballad of Trayvon Martin" and "Folded Flag." And, in the fall of 2013, Hoge dropped Never Give In as his eighth
