What’s your favorite Christmas memory/is there a toy you received that to this day still makes you smile thinking of it?
Back in ’05 my mom and I had went and got a brand new 4wheeler for dad. The whole family was in on it and we plotted for months on how to get it and how to keep it a secret until that morning. It had even snowed the night before which made it even better. To this day that remains the biggest Christmas we ever had.

Stockings were always filled with the essentials such as toothpaste, body spray and just any personal items you needed and sometimes school supplies would be in them.

What are your hopes for 2018? Any exciting plans?
To record a Hank Williams Sr. Tribute album.
A unique blend of retro-bluegrass, traditional country and gospel provides the mixture needed to make 22-year-old Joe Hott a rare treasure in today’s music scene. The lanky 6-foot-4-inch preacher’s son found a fascination early in life with the tradition-steeped sounds of artists like Dr. Ralph Stanley, Flatt & Scruggs, Hank Williams, Sr. and Bill Monroe. This spun the fabric of Joe’s creative inspiration, formed his vocal interpretations and set the foundation for his songwriting. His latest release, The Last Thing on My Mind, showcases the West Virginia native’s musical maturity and leaves little doubt that all things old are new again. Featuring 11 songs, a selection of both self-penned tracks and traditional favorites, the album showcases Joe’s genuine authenticity and commitment to being true to both himself and his influences.
