WILL HOGE DEBUTS NEW MUSIC VIDEO

WILL HOGE DEBUTS NEW MUSIC VIDEO FOR HEARTLAND ANTHEM “MIDDLE OF AMERICA”


World Premiere Exclusively Across CMT, CMT Pure, WillHoge.CMT.com and the CMT Artists App Today (11/12)






NASHVILLE, TN (Nov. 12, 2014) – Critically acclaimed singer-songwriter Will Hoge is set to world premiere the new music video for his heartland anthem “Middle Of America” on CMT, CMT Pure, WillHoge.CMT.com and the CMT Artists app today (11/12). Watch the music video, here

Filmed in the historic downtown square of Gallatin, TN, the setting aptly portrays the song's imagery of small town life. Produced by Gear Seven Creative (Taylor Swift, Justin Timberlake, Wade Bowen), the project is a one-shot music video, filmed from the perspective of a single camera in one long take. Fans can go alongside Hoge as he strolls through everyday life including a walk through the district’s tattoo parlor, a drive through the charming square in a classic Chevy car and a performance at the local pizza place.

“Middle Of America” exclusively premiered on ROLLING STONE COUNTRY. The driving tune is currently spinning on SiriusXM’s The Highway and climbing the Country music charts. "Middle Of America" is the lead single from Hoge’s forthcoming album produced by Marshall Altman, which is due in early 2015.

Hoge catapulted into the national spotlight with the release of his top-selling single “Strong.” Providing the musical backdrop for General Motor’s 2014 Chevy Silverado ad campaign, “Strong” has sold more than 200,000 copies and is featured on Hoge’s latest album NEVER GIVE IN. The celebrated project peaked at No. 4 on the Americana Airplay Charts and held steady in the Top 10 for fifteen consecutive weeks.

Breaking into mainstream country, the Nashville native has penned Lady Antebellum’s “Better Off Now (That You’re Gone)” and the Platinum-selling No. 1 smash “Even If It Breaks Your Heart,” recorded by the Eli Young Band. “Even If It Breaks Your Heart,” earned Hoge nominations for the 2013 GRAMMY Country Song of the Year, 2013 ACM Song of the Year and 2012 CMA Song of the Year.

TANYA TUCKER STRONG ENOUGH TO BEND

 
TANYA TUCKER: STRONG ENOUGH TO BEND
OPENS NOVEMBER 14 AT
COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME® AND MUSEUM

 
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (November 12, 2014) – The Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum will explore the career of superstar Tanya Tucker with the exhibition Tanya Tucker: Strong Enough to Bend, opening November 14, 2014, and running through May 2015. 

Tucker’s story is told through a collection of artifacts that illustrate her tough and tender duality and ahead-of-her-time tenure as a female country crossover star. Gorgeous stage costumes, including several Nudie’s Rodeo Tailor designs from very early in her career and gowns worn at award shows contrast with her numerous National Cutting Horse Association awards and a Harley-Davidson 1992 Screamin' Eagle— customized in her special hue of pink paint. A copy of the September 26, 1974 Rolling Stone magazine featuring Tucker as the first female country artist to appear on the cover underscores her impact, as do Tucker’s outfit from the 1994 Super Bowl halftime show and a script from her 1981 appearance on an episode of the massively popular TV series The Love Boat.

Tanya Tucker’s talent blossomed early, despite being born into poverty in Texas and raised in ramshackle apartments and trailers in Arizona, Utah, and Nevada. She began performing on local shows at age six, and within years was a regular on a Phoenix TV program.  A Las Vegas agent sent a demo recording to Billy Sherrill, who quickly signed Tucker to Columbia Records. She was thirteen years old.

At the time, few child performers had achieved success in country music. But the singer’s husky voice and audacious confidence made her seem more grown-up. She proved as much when she walked into a Nashville studio, in March 1972, and announced to Sherrill and the veteran musicians, “Well, I know my part, boys. Do you know yours?” She proceeded to belt out “Delta Dawn” like a seasoned pro, and by summer the song was a hit.

Tucker assured her success by releasing six consecutive Top Ten hits—including the #1s “What’s Your Mama’s Name,” “Blood Red and Goin’ Down,” and “Would You Lay With Me (in a Field of Stone)”—in two years, all produced by Sherrill. The narrative songs told daring stories that courted controversy, and Tucker’s mature-beyond-her-years vocal style brought out the drama and emotion in each.

Two years into her singing career, Tucker appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine—a rare national media spotlight for a country star in 1974. To her parents, Beau and Juanita Tucker, such recognition signified that their teen daughter had crossover potential that could take her beyond the country audience.

On October 10, 1974—Tucker’s sixteenth birthday—she signed a $1.4 million contract with MCA Records, a deal brokered by her ambitious father. Her seven years on MCA yielded the #1 hits “Lizzie and the Rainman.” “San Antonio Stroll,” and “Here’s Some Love.” In 1978, she recorded the rock-influenced album T.N.T. in Los Angeles.

In California, Tucker began dating singer Glen Campbell, twenty-two years her senior; their fiery, tabloid-filled relationship ended in acrimony.  After a stint with Arista Records, Tucker signed with Capitol Records and reunited with producer Jerry Crutchfield, with whom she had worked at MCA.

Tucker’s 1986 album, Girl Like Me, featured four Top Ten hits, including the #1 “Just Another Love.” She enjoyed a long run of success on Capitol (and sister label Liberty), with a string of Top Ten hits through 1997, including three consecutive #1s, “I Won’t Take Less Than Your Love,” “If It Don’t Come Easy,” and “Strong Enough to Bend.”

Tanya Tucker heard her name called as the 1991 CMA Female Vocalist of the Year while lying in a hospital bed, watching the awards show on TV. Earlier the same day, she had delivered her second child, Beau.

Her first child, daughter Presley, was born in July 1989—a year after Tucker had checked herself into the Betty Ford Center over issues with substance abuse. Her third child, Layla, arrived in 1999.

For Tucker, the CMA award came at a time when some radio stations refused to play her music while criticizing her choice to be a single mother. The CMA award, the first of her career, proved that the country music industry at large continued to support her. The national media cited Tucker’s win, and her eighteen Top Ten hits between 1988 and 1994, as signs that country music reflected the evolving roles of women in American society.

Tucker detailed her colorful life story in her1997 autobiography, Nickel Dreams: My Life. The singer also starred in her own reality show, Tuckerville, on cable network TLC. “Every one of us has good and bad times in our lives,” Tucker wrote in Nickel Dreams. “In my case, they have been to extremes.”
