Billboard No. 1 charting artist and passionate outdoorsman, Lucas Hoge, takes viewers to “far-flung locales all over the world” (Taste of Country / Sterling Whitaker) in his new video “Wishin’ I Was Fishin.'” The video features the “Hoge Wild” host fishing throughout the globe with filming locations spanning from New Zealand, Montana, Mexico, California and Tennessee. The single is the latest release from Hoge and packs a special sentiment for the singer, who co-wrote the song with Phillip Lammonds, as a tribute to his father and their shared affinity for mother nature.
Taste of Country Exclusively premiered the video. Hoge shared with the outlet, “My dad and my uncle are the reason I love the outdoors as much as I do today. Opening morning of pheasant season each year was a Hoge boy family tradition that I will cherish forever.”
Hoge’s reverence for those invaluable memories are palpable with his lyrics:
Yeah I’m wishin’ I could just ride that memory back
Feet danglin’ off the tailgate across the pasture through the grass Yeah I’m wishin’ for a sunny summer Sunday
That would never get too late
And Dad would never say
We got one last cast
Yeah I’m wishin’ I was fishin’
