Listen up...

Putting out an album of protest music is a risky venture. I think Hoge nailed it! You may not agree with everything he has to say but at least he said it, and now it’s out there, in the universe, up for discussion. So, with an open mind, you can listen to these songs that made me laugh, made me cry and most importantly, made me think. Let them inspire you to start your own dialog.

the Me-Too Chorus

Echoing the ideology from Hollywood, the Elite Media and pop culture in protest music is not gutsy, it's the Me-Too Chorus. There's an endless list of "brave" artists who wear the same badge of honor. Sure he'll lose fans who disagree but he'll pick up many others who don't. Musically it's consistent with what he's been doing on his other works. This effort is far from daring. Gutsy is a pro-conservative, Christian, personal responsibility protest album.

Ballad of Trayvon Martin

Seriously? Will I was a huge Hoge fan but this and illegal line are just so dumb, lazy, ill-informed and white-guitly I don't trust your instincts anymore. The thing with the blues is wisdom. Both of these songs are so fundamentally lacking in it I now question what I ever saw in you in the first place. The blues is about the truth even if it's hard to hear - what you've done is take propagandist talking points and embarrass yourself with them. God this is such a shame. I'm sorry but I'm done paying for your music.

Born and raised in Tennessee, songwriter Will Hoge made his name honing a blend of soulful Americana and heartland rock & roll. After spending his childhood in the Nashville suburb of Franklin, he left Tennessee to study history at Western Kentucky University. Music drew him back home, however, and he relocated to Nashville to assemble a band that included former Georgia Satellites guitarist Dan Baird. Hoge then cut his teeth on the Southern bar circuit and issued a live release, 1999's All Night...
