Biography

Dan Hochhalter is a multi-instrumentalist whose career has taken him from his local county fairgrounds all the way to the stage of the Grammys. Originally from White Bear Lake, Minnesota, Dan relocated to Nashville at age 20 to enroll at Belmont University and immerse himself in Nashville’s music scene. Shortly after arriving to town, he had the good fortune of landing a gig with LONESTAR, and has since performed on countless stages around the world. Dan can currently be seen out on tour with DIERKS BENTLEY as well as heard playing fiddle and banjo on Dierks’ latest release, RISER.
