His rural western roots run deep, and he writes and sings about the life he knows and lives. Valuable lessons about honesty, integrity, and keeping your word—no matter what—were instilled at an early age, and form the backdrop of his musical perspective. Those values are timeless and resonate with everyone, which is why so many identify strongly with his music.
Worldwide, Hager’s music is making a difference. He regularly sells music in over a dozen countries. In spring 2017 he completed a 24-concert tour of Japan – performing only his original western, country, cowboy, and Gospel songs. He has been invited back.
Musically, Hager writes everything that he sings and his style is heavily influenced by other 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 as “Easy-going, melodic, and clever” relating to more traditional Country and Western music prior to the pop-culture influences.
Greg looks forward to adventures on the road. Chris LeDoux said it best, “Life IS a ride!” and Greg relishes the opportunities to meet and work with people across the globe. The epitome of a professional both on the stage and off, he is family friendly and a cowboy gentleman.
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-styled country songs, one Christmas album bringing joy to the holidays, and two albums of Country Gospel music that bring the “Good News” to song.
He is married with three children and lives in southeast North Dakota, near the family homestead.
Hager would love to share his musical talents at your special event. Please contact him for details.
