This fall GRAMMY-nominated artist Will Hoge will set out on his first major headlining run – NEVER GIVE IN TOUR 2013. Kicking off on October 11 in Dallas, Texas, the 27-city nationwide tour will go through December. Supporting Hoge on the majority of the dates will be veteran rockers Red Wanting Blue and label mate Sunny Sweeney will team up with him for stops in Brooklyn, Chicago, Indianapolis and Milwaukee.

Hoge will be touring in support of the release of his ninth studio album titled NEVER GIVE IN on October 15 via Thirty Tigers. Today (8/13), the critically acclaimed singer-songwriter gives fans a sneak peek by unveiling the forthcoming album’s cover.

“I’m so excited about this new album. I can’t wait to get out on the road and play these new songs for folks,” shares Will Hoge. “There’s gonna be a lot of different things happening live on this tour and I’m thrilled for everyone to get to see it. Couple all these incredible cities with such great support acts as Red Wanting Blue and Sunny Sweeney, it is going to be one fun tour!“

NEVER GIVE IN is a life motto for the Nashville native who catapulted into the national spotlight in 2012. Spending the early part of the year supporting Dierks Bentley’s arena headlining tour, Hoge was introduced to his first dose of mainstream country. The release of the Eli Young Band Platinum smash “Even If It Breaks Your Heart,” which he co-wrote with Eric Paslay, garnered an enormous amount of buzz at Country radio, earning Hoge nominations for the 2013 GRAMMY Country Song of the Year, 2013 ACM Song of the Year and 2012 CMA Song of the Year. While raising Hoge’s profile as a hit songwriter, the song also introduced his music and records to the Country music audience; a decade removed from major label release on Atlantic Records, CAROUSEL. Currently, his song “Strong” is featured as the musical backdrop for General Motor’s 2014 Chevy Silverado nationwide ad campaign.
