There’s just something about Lucas Hoge that makes him instantly likable. Maybe it’s his small-town roots (He’s from tiny Hubbell, Nebraska with a population of around 50). Or maybe it’s his farm-bred work ethic. Or maybe it’s how you can sense those things in both the man and his music.
He’s currently promoting his single, “Give A Damn,” and is putting the finishing touches on his self-titled album, which is due out near the end of March. You may already have heard some of his music — not necessarily on the radio but on TV. His “If I Only Could,” was featured on an episode of Smallville on the WB. Plus, he has written and performed the theme songs for two shows: The already mentioned “Give A Damn,” which is the theme song for Tom’s Wild Life on GAC and the title theme song for Last Chance Highway on Animal Planet. If that’s not enough, he also wrote and performed a jingle for Lipton Tea.
The interview is the first time that I had spoken with Lucas. Yes, he’s out to promote his music, but clearly there’s so much more to him than that. It may have only been one conversation, but from it I could tell that he is truly compassionate and caring about people, pets, and, naturally, making music. You’ll probably get the same sense about him after reading it.
Kellie Pickler will be taking part in the first-ever live edition of “The Collection” on GAC and on Facebook. The live event takes place tonight (January 18) at 8:00pm Eastern.
Pickler will be sitting down with host Storme Warren to talk about the making of several of her music videos.
During the telecast members of the TV audience and the virtual audience will be able to submit questions for Kellie via GAC’s Facebook page, www.facebook.com/GAC (clicking on the ‘Kellie Pickler’ chat tab). The questions will be sent to Warren’s on-set iPad and he will share them with Kellie.
Following the one hour show, Pickler will continue to engage fans through an online chat on the GAC Facebook page.
And don’t forget: we’re premiering song’s off of Kellie’s new “100 Proof” album each day until the 24th! Join us at www.facebook.com/keepinitcountry.
DVR Alert! Tonight at 8:30 EST/7:30 CST GAC is airing a very special program, “Holiday Notes from Home,” to honor servicemen and women and their families. While we’re always up for tuning in for a good cause, featured performers include country music favorites Little Big Town and Lee Ann Womack, making this an even higher priority on our must-see TV list.
The performance itself was a way to give back to military families. Filmed in October on the Grad Ole Opry stage, the event was free to the public and priority was given to military families. Now, “Holiday Notes from Home” will are on The Armed Forces Radio and Television Network, in addition to GAC.
Tune in tonight, then let us know what you thought of the show in the comments!
