Hoge has made the transition into budding country star look easy. With
his new single spinning on radio stations from Albany, NY and Orlando,
FL to Monterey, CA and a #1 best-selling album to his credit, a humble

enough for the support,” shares Hoge. “Purchasing music is one of the
biggest compliments you can give to an artist, knowing people enjoy my
music is so fulfilling!”
Hoge’s Dirty South Tour is equally impressive with stops at
several iconic southern destinations just around the corner, with
appearances at Sun Records in Memphis, The French Quarter in New
Orleans, the Florida Everglades and Lookout Mountain, to name a few.
