Hope Country

It was Brent Johnson’s desire to create an environment and place of hope that led him to start Hope Country in 2011. Since then, the Minnesota-based band has released two EPs and supported them with multiple headline tours, festival appearances, and support slots for Brandi Carlile, Ingrid Michaelson, Twin Forks, Joseph, American Aquarium, The Wild Feathers, Nikki Lane, Sturgill Simpson, Rayland Baxter, Andrew Ripp, David Cook, Soul Asylum, Martin Sexton, and more, along with a run of sold-out dates with Judah & The Lion. With an emphasis on strong songwriting and lyrics that tell heartfelt stories of life and living, as well as a desire to blend genres and scenes, Hope Country has developed into a prime example of modern-day Americana.
