Will Hoge Lets You Know That Plans Change, and That's OK

Growing up in a small town, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have dreams of going pro in any of the sports I played or even making it big in some way. Genetics made going pro impossible, so I’m writing about country songs instead (I’ll take it).

A lot of songs talk about growing up in a small town, and while most talk about them with comically overdone stereotypes, Will Hoge’s Little Bitty Dreams describes growing up in a small town that he’s not able to get out of because life throws him a curveball (puns, yay) and he has to put his baseball dreams off to the side. It’s all about what you make of the situation once it arises, and sometimes the things you think are going to ruin your life end up making life worth living.

Turns out those big dreams ain’t got nothing on those little bitty dreams of having a family.
