‘Nick’s Wild Ride’ comes through Elk River
The Nowthen native whose passions include music, food, people, travel and culture as well as hunting, fishing and just about everything outdoors, gets to sample all of them on a daily basis — and get paid for it.
“Think about what I do,” he said. “I play music in front of huge crowds of people. I have been lucky enough to be given awards. I have had hit songs on the radio with The Farm. I have toured with some of the biggest acts in the world.
“And now I have a television show that’s shaping up to be a hit. I’m traveling around doing the things I love to do the most in the world. I keep waiting for the hammer to drop.”
“Nick’s Wild Ride,” a 13-segment, 30-minute show premiered Friday, July 1, with its debut episode taking Hoffman to Louisiana, where he learned how to make hot sauce from the locals. He then traveled up the Mississippi River to hunt turkey and catch crawfish.
He has since been out of the United States to the Bahamas, Argentina and Mexico as well as in the states in fields, prairies, rivers, deserts and mountains of Colorado, Kentucky, Arizona, Nebraska, Wyoming, Mississippi and South Dakota.
