Meet Noah Hudson from Moultonborough, NH and Nashville
When you know, you Noah. And Noah Hudson knew from a very young age. This now 21 year old Belmont University student had stars in his eyes and a guitar in his hands for as long as he can remember. The lessons started in first grade, by 14 he was writing songs, and by 17 he had won a local radio station contest in New Hampshire for “Local Song of the Year.”
Now, the part-time realtor is just beginning to live out his dreams in Nashville. He’s been writing a lot, and hoping to get back to the stage soon. In the meantime you can hear some of his new unreleased music on his Instagram page, along with some cool covers.
You get the sense from his music and his voice that Noah is an old soul. His sound is warm like Lee Brice, slightly edgy like his Hardy and certainly accomplished for an artist his age. But make no mistake, Noah is molding his own musical identity… plowing a new path to his dream.

Noah wrote this song, “Better With Time,” with his friends Trent Wayne and Matt Mulhare in January of this year. THey came up with the idea of using different examples of things that get better with time, to explain a relationship that is better with time.
