About Joe Hott:

Joe
Hott is a new face and voice for a world of listeners ready to discover
that “all things old become new.” The lanky 6 foot preacher’s son found
a fascination early in life with the tradition-steeped sounds of
artists like Dr. Ralph Stanley, Flatt & Scruggs, Hank Williams, Sr.
and Bill Monroe. This spun the fabric of Joe’s creative inspiration,
formed his vocal interpretations and set the foundation for his
songwriting. Now, after years of touring Appalachia and developing a
musical identity of his own, Joe has earned the support of WSM Radio and
a partnership with national retailer Durango Boots.
