The fall season was kicked off at the Washington County Fair in Richmond Rhode Island. This typical fall fair has all that you could ask for; Fried dough, tractor pulls, animals and live entertainment. Many acts grace the stage over the 4 day long fair. To close out the fair was Nashville recording artist, JT Hodges.
JT Hodges, along with his 3 piece band, entertained the ever growing crowd with not one, but two shows on the fairs last day. There were some big fans of Hodges at the fair that claimed their spot early to get that prized viewing spot. There were some fans that stayed for both performances.
Hodges has been hard at work, working on the follow-up to his 2012 release “JT Hodges” Along with playing favorites such as “Hunt You Down” and “Goodbyes Made You Mine”, JT gave the audience a preview of some of his new material. After listening to his new material, I am eager to hear the entire album when it gets released (No release date as of yet).
Still a relative newcomer to the scene, Hodges has an old school vibe to his voice. Seeing him perform, you get a sense of some of Hodges idols; Elvis, Buddy Holly and The Eagles…….just to name a few. Having had the privilege to see and work with JT on several occasions, he just keeps getting better and better. This is one performer to keep an eye on.
So keep your eyes and ears open for those new songs from Hodges, including the November 5th holiday release “Joy To The World.” Also catch JT Hodges in the Hallmark Channel’s “Finding Christmas” on December 15th. This is just the start of the next big thing from JT Hodges.
