James Linden Hogg is an immensely talented artist who just turned 17 this summer but he’s already accomplished so much. Most notably, he had his own day in his hometown. Hogg has also released lots of music at his young age, including his recent take on “Thank God I’m a Country Boy.” The single is now available on iTunes and he’s putting the money in his college fund. Hogg also has the appropriately titled albums, College Fund Vol. 1 and College Fund Vol. 2. He describes the latter as “a wonderful selection of classic sacred sounds that you might hear in an abbey or cathedral during evensong.” He’s not mainstream country and he has quite an ear for gospel and historical music, but we’re loving everything he puts his name on. He’s a prodigy in his own right.
From the age of six to ten, he was a featured actor on the syndicated children’s television show, “Hollywood Hal and Rhinestone Al”. He is the recipient of the Distinguished National History Day contest, Louisiana champion; the youngest performer to ever be featured at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, and the 2015 Louisiana State Fiddle Champion from Northwestern State University. Help Hogg save money for college by purchasing his single on iTunes (hey, it’s only .99!)
