congratulations will hoge!
That Mercury Sound favorite Mr. Will Hoge has penned a #1 hit! The singer/songwriter/all-around-barn-burner has long been one of my top artists, straddling the country/rock line with beautifully crafted songs and his trademark gritty voice. Hoge’s “Even If It Breaks Your Heart,” released on his 2009 album The Wreckage, has been covered by country group the Eli Young Band and after 26 weeks on the charts reached #1 earlier this month. The song is flat out gorgeous and has been mentioned on this site before. I’ve heard the Eli Young Band’s version and while perfectly serviceable, Hoge’s original is far superior. See what you think:
Congratulations to Will from all of us here at That Mercury Sound! (just me)
