Album: Never Give In (2013)

  • Lyrics
  • Will Hoge is a Nashville-based singer-songwriter who is best known for recording the original version of Eli Young Band's hit single, "Even If It Breaks Your Heart." He explained to Artist Direct the story behind this country anthem: "We had this new record Never Give In done, but I'm just always writing for other people, myself, or to write," he said. "It was just another writing session. We finished the song. I felt really good about the story it told and I liked the imagery. We were trying to portray what we loved about our fathers, and we're talking about the fathers we want to be. We all have kids. That's what the song was born out of."
  • The song soundtracked an advertisement for the Chevy Silverado in 2013.
