Any country music fan who subscribes to XM Radio is probably familiar with SiriusXM The Highway. This great station plays all of the newest songs by the newest artists, right along with music from today’s biggest stars. If you are a Highway listener, you may have already heard “Halabamalujah”, the new single from Reviver Records’ Lucas Hoge. You can watch the lyric video on his web site, or on YouTube. I like what Lucas said about the song at the beginning of the video. He was pretty much taken with the song as soon as he heard it. I get that. This is a fun song, with a lively, entertaining, amusing, enjoyable and very memorable sound. From the melody to the lyrics, there is nothing about this song that won’t bring a smile to your face.
The new single is available on iTunes. You can also find other music from Lucas on iTunes. Check out some of the albums he has there, too.
Many of our regular readers are very familiar with Lucas Hoge. We’ve had a number of articles posted about him, from his participation in Wrangler National Patriot Tour this past Memorial Day, to his role as Cabela’s Brand Ambassador. I have to mention the article we did about his nomination for Inspirational Country Video of the Year for the song, The Journey. The reason I had to mention that one is because “The Journey” is probably my favorite Lucas Hoge song. That song also shows you how accomplished and adaptable this young man is with his music. “The Journey” is so different from his “Halabamalujah”, and definitely nothing like “Flip Flops”. That great summer song, “Flip Flops” is way up on the list of my personal favorite songs from Lucas. (If you missed reading any of those previous articles, I hope you will go back and read them, you can do that just by clicking on the titles above).
