It is common knowledge that Will Hoge can write superb songs. He's got his 2012 Academy of Country Music (ACM), Country Music Association (CMA) and Grammy nominations for Best Country Song for "Even If It Breaks Your Heart," plus his national "Strong" 2014 Silverado pickup truck ad campaign to prove it (see above). But did you know this father of two can also write children's book?

I didn't... at least not he posted THIS on his official Facebook page.

So I've written/published my first children's book 'The Chrump'. Check it out. Here's the link

“A time-honored tale of overblown ego and narcissism and one way of how we deal with that in a person we know,” the book is…a cute calling out of certain presidential candidate...because let's be honest...Will didn't release an album titled, "Modern American Protest Music" for nothing.

The new The Chrump, which came out February 13, is a Seussian-style children’s book, with colorful illustrations by Dean Tomasek.

We see what you did there, Will! (Insert winky face emoticon here).

Check out the illustrations and listen to Hoge read The Chrump aloud in the video above, and you will too.
