A six time nominee as the WESTERN ARTIST OF THE YEAR with the Academy of Western Artists, Greg Hager is certainly making connections with the music that he writes and sings.
His musical stories about “life, living, love, cattle, country, and faith” are making strong connections all across the USA. Averaging over 120 concert events per year, Hager is very busy performing at rodeos, fairs, banquets, church events, festivals, and other various venues.
Hager was the “2015 Country and Western Album Of The Year” Recipient by the Rural Roots Music Commission for IN THE VALLEY BELOW. This album was also nominated as the 2015 Western Album of the Year with the Academy of Western Artists. His song COWBOY DREAMING was nominated in 2015 as the Western Song of the Year.
Nashville singer/songwriter/musician, Royal Wade Kimes, cut Greg’s song COWBOY DREAMING on his album called “Shadows of Time.”
His rural western roots run deep, and so he writes and sings about the life he knows. Raised on a dairy and grain farm, he learned the value of honesty and integrity, and keeping your word no matter what. This is the perspective that shines through in his music. He says those are values common to everyone, and that is why so many identify strongly with his music.
Hager is the epitome of professional both on the stage and off. He is truly entertaining and family friendly. A cowboy gentleman.
Musically, Hager has been influenced by great 12-string guitar pickers and story-tellers like John Denver, Roger Whittaker, Gordon Lightfoot, Paul Overstreet, Clint Black, George Strait, and many others. His style is described along the lines of what Country and Western music used to be before all of the Pop influences…”Easy-going, melodic, and clever.”
Greg Hager looks forward to adventures on the road of life. Life IS a ride!!!
A Nashville produced musician, Hager has recorded and released seven CD’s of 100% original music. In fact, he is the only artist in North Dakota history to do so.
Four of his albums are “positive” western and country, one Christmas album, and two albums of Country Gospel music.
He is married with three children and lives southwest of Valley City, ND near the family homestead.
Hager would love to bring his musical entertainment to your special event. Please contact him for details.
