Sirius XM The Highway is now playing Lucas Hoge’s new single Flip Flops He will be On The Horizon each weekend on channel 56. Hoge recently celebrated the world premiere release of the new single which is described as a sizzlin’ summertime tune (released in alliance with Reviver Records and Sony Red Distribution). It is 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,” Hoge says on his website. “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.
Hoge says, 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!”
