NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Filmed on the Warner Bros. set where John Wayne shot several of his classic movies, Lucas Hoge’s acoustic video for “John Wayne and Jesus” exclusively premieres on The Christian Post

The acoustic video was filmed during Hoge’s recent trip to Los Angeles for an appearance on The Hallmark Channel’s “Home & Family,”  The heartwarming, new song was written by Hoge, Andy Wills and Danny Simpson and honors Hoge’s upbringing with lyrics like: 

I learned to fight and I learned to pray
I learned right from wrong along the way
To this day, I practice what they’re preaching
I had Mom and Dad, John Wayne and I had Jesus

“‘John Wayne and Jesus’ was a thought I had been sitting on for awhile. When I got together with my buddies Andy Wills and Danny Simpson, I knew they would be the perfect guys to bring it to life. We wanted to create one of those songs that really encompassed the way of life we had as kids and the values that mom, dad, John Wayne and Jesus gave to us,” expressed Hoge.
