"Took a whole lot of miles to know what I know now," sings Will Hoge on "Growing Up Around Here," the opening track off of his tenth studio album, Small Town Dreams. "I'm kinda proud of growing up around here." It's been a whole lot of miles, indeed: miles on the road, driving the bus himself from venue to venue since the nineties; miles to and from Nashville writing rooms, where he's spent countless hours penning songs – some for him, some for others; miles exploring lands outside of his native Franklin, Tennessee, chasing the spirits of his musical heroes. Roads meet, roads split, roads led to home. This is the album that follows them all, every twist and turn in Hoge's American journey – a journey that's positioned him as one of our keenest, most honest modern storytellers, telling both his tale and ours.


"It's a reflection of where I am currently in my life," says Hoge of Small Town Dreams, "but also where I grew up, and, ultimately, where I think I'm going." From the streets of the town where he was raised, to the sidewalks of cities a hundred times the size, we all have dreams; and these are the stories of growing up, looking back and passing on those dreams, told as only Hoge can. Nostalgia, in his hands, is truly magic. 


An extremely prolific songwriter with ten albums under his belt and countless songs written for others (including a Grammy nomination for Eli Young Band's number-one hit, "Even If Breaks Your Heart," co-written with Paslay), Hoge saw this next phase of his journey as an opportunity to explore even deeper into both his country and rock & roll roots. Never fitting particularly neatly into a genre box, he's always just made the music that moved him – but it's safe to say that he feels more kinship with the country community than ever, particularly as a storyteller. 


Artist Spotlight on Will Hoge

The Tennessee native is taking on the road for the first time after leaving his band in 2015. With his latest studio album Anchors, Hoge returns to his roots, exploring his original love for music and the singular art of songwriting.


Anchors is Hoge’s eleventh full-length album, and his first solo album since touring with his Small Town Dreams record back in 2015. Taking on the solo-endeavor has reinvigorated the artist to create a masterful collection of songs that allows Hoge to lay it all out on the line, no parameters to hold him back. The album includes the track “Young As You Will Ever Be,” which tells the story of a coming-of-age acoustic rocker.


Will Hoge’s life in music is made up of immeasurable hours spent on the road, performing in music venues all over the country, and putting pen to paper to create his heart-felt tracks back home in Nashville. He has a fascinating story, having driven the tour bus himself since the early nineties when he was in his first band, 

Spoonful. After his first band broke up, Will was in and out of agreements with record labels and band members for many years. His band released many live albums on their own, and a few studio albums, including Carousel, Draw the Curtains, and Wreckage, which was inspired by Hoge’s scooter accident on August 20, 2008. Although he was in critical condition and faced emergency and follow-up surgeries on a long-hard road to recovery, Hoge came out ever more inspired to continue writing.


Ultimately, Hoge is a storyteller; his medium, words, a guitar and a keyboard. He is a natural songwriter who has lent his heart and soul to over ten albums. He has even written music for other artists, including the Grammy-nominated track, “Even If It Breaks Your Heart,” which he wrote for the Eli Young Band in collaboration with Paslay.


“Took a whole lot of miles to know what I know now,” opens the song “Growing Up Around Here,” which sets the tone of the nostalgic album Small Town Dreams. Although it is true to his life on the road, it also represents Hoge’s struggle with working in a band that was constantly arguing and stifling each other’s creativity.


Hoge now enters into a new chapter in his story, returning to his love of country and rock & roll sounds to create and share music that is personally moving.
