This week history was made here in Texas, as Sunny Sweeney took "My Bed" to the top of the Texas charts. You may recall "Bad Girl Phase," too, went to the top towards the end of 2014. This marks the first time a female singer has had two consecutive No. 1's in Texas. Congrats, Sunny! If you haven't gotten your hands on her album "Provoked" yet, do.
Back in November, Jennifer Nettles stopped in to Marathon Music Works in Nashville for a Spotify-sponsored album preview event. It was there she was joined by singer-songwriter Will Hoge, who took the stage with the Sugarland star to sing his own hit single 'Strong.'
He’s been writing and performing songs for fifteen years, and even though Will Hoge is a name you might not yet know — you are definitely familiar with his work. Hoge penned Eli Young Band’s No.1 smash “Even if it Breaks Your Heart,” a song that earned him a Grammy nomination. He's also the guy singin' on the Chevy truck commercials.
Letterman, or someone on his staff, has an apparent fondness for alternative-country, and this is good. Ray Wylie Hubbard, Jason Isbell, Dale Watson and Randy Rogers Band have all recently taken their talents to Late Night.
It's a traffic jam this week at the top of the chart as Kyle Park, Reckless Kelly, and Wade Bowen all have their sights set on de-throning Will Hoge at No.1, can any of them do it? Let’s find out.
It's a traffic jam this week at the top of the chart as Kyle Park, Josh Abbott, Cody Johnson and Will Hoge all have their sights set on No.1, but there's only room for one No.1. Who lands it? Let’s find out.
Will Hoge is the Grammy Nominated writer who you know as the writer of Eli Young Band's hit, 'Even If It Breaks Your Heart'. He's loaned his voice to Chevy now for the new commercial that you will actually love!
It's safe to say that Eli Young Band has become THE Texas Country band paving the way for other aspiring Texas Country Artists to the top. They have gained much success this past year and more importantly more respect for the Texas genre of music.
