Nashville mainstay Will Hoge recently released his 10th studio album, Small Town Dreams, (Cumberland Recordings/Thirty Tigers) and is touring in support of the project. The singer-songwriter is scheduled for dates next week in Birmingham, Ala. (4/21), Charlotte, N.C. (4/22), Asheville, N.C. (4/23) and Columbia, S.C (4/24). In September he will head overseas for his first-ever full band trek to the United Kingdom for seven headlining dates across Scotland and England.

After producing several albums on his own, Hoge handed the reins to producer Marshall Altman (Frankie Ballard, Eric Paslay, Matt Nathanson). They recorded driving lead single “Middle Of America” in Nashville’s historic RCA Studio A.

Small Town Dreams follows Hoge’s other notable projects. “Strong,” a single from his previous album, has sold nearly 200,000 copies and was featured in the 2014 Chevy Silverado ad campaign. Hoge penned Lady Antebellum’s “Better Off Now (That You’re Gone),” and co-wrote the Platinum-selling No. 1 smash “Even If It Breaks Your Heart,” recorded by the Eli Young Band. The latter song earned nominations for the 2013 Grammy Country Song of the Year, 2013 ACM Song of the Year and 2012 CMA Song of the Year.
