Nashville singer-songwriter Will Hoge finally debuted his music video for “When I Get My Wings” on CMT yesterday. His seventh studio album “Number Seven” will be released on September 27th. The song was inspired by a newspaper obituary he read about a 50-year old marriage. He wanted to reflect that in his music video, which shows the story of love from its beginning until the end when the spouse passes away.
“The song started life as a bluegrass song, but it just wasn’t working,” says Hoge. “On the last day of recording, I wasn’t willing to give up on it. I sat in the studio and rethought the whole song and that led me to the Stax sound. After that, the song took on a whole new life. It’s really cool that CMT wants to get behind this video, I’m so appreciative of their support.”
