Will Hoge to play benefit for VUMC | Nov. 23&24 | 3rd and Lindsley

If you haven’t checked out The Nashville Scene’s cover story on Nashville’s unbreakable Will Hoge, go ahead and click through above. I’ll wait for you, because once you read it, I know you’ll be back to check out details on his show tonight.

Now that we’re all caught up…

Confession: I have been a big time Will Hoge fan for over a decade. It started when I was a teenager and I used to travel to Memphis (with boyfriend and best friend in tow) for extra opportunities to see him do his thing. I have an autographed copy of During The Before And After from a Bonnaroo appearance 6 or 7 years ago that I proudly display among my other music memorabilia as a remembrance of truly special night in Manchester.

When I was younger, I was awe-struck by the reality that such a general all-around rockstar was living in my city and shopping at my neighborhood Kroger. As an adult, I’m astounded by his resilience, his determination, his wisdom and grace, and his all-around humility. He’s a total pro and we’re all lucky to call him a hometown boy.

He’s recently had some success on the country charts having written a truly beautiful song, “Even If It Breaks Your Heart,” (see his version below) that was covered by the Eli Young Band. But make no mistake, Will is a rock-n-roll guy, for sure.

Join him this weekend at 3rd and Lindsley in celebrating his miraculous recovery from a truly horrendous accident and help to raise funds for VUMC, who kept the man (and the music!) alive. It’s a 2 night stand. Friday 23 (the benefit) and Saturday 24 (just your regular rock show) — both nights, doors at 6, Show at 8, Tix are $20 and available here for Friday (with brother, Josh Hoge) and here for Saturday (billed as “with Special Guests”).
