Will Hoge’s ‘Strong’ Featured in the New Chevy Silverado Ad Campaign
Here is the official Chevrolet Silverado music video/commercial featuring Grammy award-nominated singer-songwriter Will Hoge. You know Hoge, he wrote Eli Young Band's 2012 No.1 smash "Even if it Breaks Your Heart." This year he wrote and sang a No.1 single here in Texas, the most ironic song of 2013, "Another Song Nobody Will Hear."
If you missed when Hoge broke the news, here ya go:
So here’s an update from Will Hoge world……. A month or so ago I wrote a song with my cousin Zach Crowell and Ashley Gorley. I was excited about the opportunity to get to write with both guys. I really respect both, I’ve had holidays meals with one but hadn’t written with either. We wrote a new song called ‘Strong’. Well, next thing you know it’s made it’s way to some folks who work for this automobile company called ‘Chevrolet’. Perhaps you’re familiar with it? You know, the company Don Draper and Co. are wooing on Mad Men? Yeah. That one. Well, they love our song. So we record a full band version. They love it more. They want to use it in their new campaign for the launch of the 2014 Chevy Silverado. I say ‘ummmm……YES!’ So, in the next week or so, as you’re watching your TV, if you hear a voice that seems strangely familiar(and awesome), that’d be me. I’m really flattered at the opportunity and wanna thank Chevy for letting me be a part of it.
Last week I flew to Gruene, TX to film a right and proper music video for the song as well. It was done by Bob Richardson who is a legend a gentleman and a gin-u-wine bad ass. My buddy Vince Gill told me to never name drop….but…..Bob has worked with Martin Scorcese, Quentin Tarantino and Oliver Stone to name a few. Plus he shot a recent concert video called ‘Shine A Light’ for some English upstart band called the Rolling Stones (you’ll probably be hearing about them soon). So, yeah, it was killer. The video will be done and out soon so also keep an eye out for that.
We’ll keep you posted with more developments, when you can get ‘Strong’ on iTunes, etc.
Again, as always, thanks for listening. Thanks for supporting me. Thanks for letting me do what I do.
Talk to y’all soon.
