Set To Impact Country Radio In Early August
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (June 26, 2014)— Nashville singer/songwriter, performer and country recording artist Lucas Hoge celebrates the world premiere release of his new single entitled “Flip Flops.”** The sizzlin’ summertime tune (released in alliance with Reviver Records and Sony Red Distribution) is set to impact country radio on August 4, 2014 [CDX/Vol. 599 (7/7/14) // Radio promotion headed up by GrassRoots Promotion].
A “beachy keen” tune with a good-timin’ groove, the infectious new track (co-written by Hoge and JD Wood) paints a radiant picture of warm winds, hot skin, tan lines and bikini tops. The "feel-good-allover" track basks in Hoge's vocals--as crystal clear as the Caribbean blue-green waters.
"This track is upbeat, fun and truthful. My buddy had the idea for the song title and I wanted the message to reflect my life on the farm in comparison to the first time I saw the ocean," Lucas Hoge introduced. "The line 'this girl on my arm has never seen a farm and she couldn't believe I'd never been to the ocean' is written from a chapter of my life 10 years ago. That 'girl' became my wife and when she heard I'd never seen the ocean, she made flight reservations that very day for us to head to the west Coast!”
The toe-tappin’ melody and easy-does-it lyrics will take listeners to “Five O’clock Somewhere” where “No Shoes, No Shirts…” are no problem:
WARM WIND ON YOUR HOT SKIN
EVERYBODY GONNA JUMP ON IN
‘TIL THE NIGHT COMES AND THE MOON’S UP
GONNA NEED A LITTLE LIGHT TO HELP YOU FIND THOSE
FLIP FLOPS AND BIKINI TOPS
The latest offering comes from Hoge’s upcoming EP intended for an early Fall 2014 release. [Hoge is currently writing and working alongside producer Matt McCLure (Lee Brice/HARD 2 LOVE); the creative pair is scheduled to head into the studio in the coming weeks.]
The new music follows on the heels of Hoge’s return from the 5th Annual USO Wrangler National Patriot Memorial Day Tour and the announcement of his official endorsement relationship with Wrangler National Patriot.
Hoge is no stranger to large audiences on the big screen and center stage, in print, and over radio airwaves. An all-around entertainer, Hoge continues to pioneer the path as a contending major indie artist. His reputation as a motion-moving performer, clever lyricist and stand-out vocalist precede him as he transcends borders into the acting arena; Hoge starred in Animal Planet’s Last Chance Highway and played the feature role in Clinton Gregory’s video “Too Much Ain’t Enough.” With music at the forefront, his versatile artistry has landed him appearances on The Today Show, Inside Edition and he has graced the pages of People Magazine and Country Weekly; he has performed abroad and at some of country music’s biggest events and venues (CMA Fest and the historic Ryman Auditorium).
