Tennessee (what a word to spell at 10 in the morning) native Will Hoge arrives in the UK next week to promote his new album “Anchors” which is out on August 11th and features among other tracks a song he recorded with Sheryl Crow Little Bit of Rust which you can listen to below. “I hit a wall,” says Hoge. “I was doing the best touring of my career and I had a great, steady gig writing songs, but I was falling out of love with being in a band. I didn’t have a good answer when I asked myself, ‘Why am I still doing this?’ So I walked away. I had to figure out what was next.” Hoge then stopped hitting walls (not great if you play the guitar) and started to write songs that “made him feel like a kid falling in love with rock and roll all over again.” Not rock or roll note, rock and roll. Polygamy rules. Here are those dates.
