Will Hoge - The Highway's Home

“Beat up and kicked around, I pick myself up off the ground.” It’s a life that works for the narrator in this song “with a suitcase full of empty dreams.” Country all the way to open this hump day party on a steady note, complete with a nod toward Hank Williams. Slow moving but steady, no surprises, yet the performance draws my ears close and encourages a smile from my lips. “A guitar with broken strings and a busted heart that longs to sing the blues.” Will Hoge
