An accomplished songwriter and performer, Will Hoge is a 2013 Grammy Award Nominee for "Even If it Breaks Your Heart," a country song that he co-wrote for the Eli Young Band. His own single, "Strong," is featured in an advertisement for the 2014 Chevy Silverado truck. Currently on a solo tour that sees him taking the stage in intimate venues, Hoge has also supported notable artists, including NEEDTOBREATHE, Dierks Bentley and ZZ Top. During a concert, Hoge is known for playing a rich mixture of new and catalog songs and also prefacing many with humorous and personable dialogue that helps him effortlessly relate to every ticket buyer in the room.
Hoge's latest album, "Never Give In," is available on iTunes, and "Strong," the lead single, has already sold tens of thousands of copies. The album's title is inspired by a life motto that Hoge certainly puts into action every day, as shown through accolades earned despite momentary hardships, such as a severe scooter accident that occurred in 2008. It required several surgeries, plus intensive physical therapy, but Hoge has made a complete recovery. He's truly a man who wears many hats, having played as part of a band in the mid-1990s, then embarking on a solo career that still continues today. By using his songwriting skills to create hits for other artists and also signing a songwriting deal with BMG Nashville in 2012, Hoge continually demonstrates a high level of awareness about today's multi-faceted music industry, and more importantly, how to enjoy consistent levels of success.
