No. 1 Billboard charting artist Lucas Hoge will celebrate Christmas Day with a performance of “Christmas Without You” from his holiday album, 12.25, this Saturday, December 25 on “Fox & Friends.” Proceeds from “Christmas Without You” will benefit the Purple Heart Foundation, a non-profit organization that raises funds to help veterans and their families. Hoge is passionate about giving back to this organization during the holiday season and beyond.
12.25 is produced by GRAMMY®-nominated Kent Wells (Dolly Parton) and features collaborations with ACM/CMA/TONY-nominated Skip Ewing and platinum-selling singer-songwriter Jamie O’Neal. The album features re-imagined holiday classics as well as four original songs from Hoge.
People.com exclusively premiered Hoge’s video for “Let It Snow” Featuring Jamie O’Neal. The host of “Hoge Wild” enlists ACM award-winning O’Neal for the classic duet, whose “velvety harmonies perfectly meld with Hoge’s charming croons” (Sounds Like Nashville). Sounds Like Nashville exclusively premiered a ‘First Listen’ to the track, praising that Hoge’s version “is every bit cheery and cozy, while also brimming with playful holiday romance.”
“This is my favorite project to date, not only did I have the best time recording this with such a revered producer in the industry as Kent Wells. I got to have some good friends and amazing country artists be a part of this as well,” shared Hoge. “Being able to have one of my musical inspirations, Skip Ewing, duet a song with me and have Jamie O’Neal’s tremendous vocals on ‘Let it Snow’ was a dream. I hope everyone loves this record as much as I do, and becomes a staple for every Christmas season.”
