NASHVILLE, Tenn.  – Following a performance on the historic Grand Ole Opry stage, No. 1 Billboard chart-topping Lucas Hoge releases two stripped down acoustic versions to his latest singles “That’ll Be The Day” and “Bad People,” available today. 

“There’s just something about an acoustic track that can really change the vibe on a song and I’m excited to release both of these acoustic versions!” said Hoge.  “I love a full band show but an intimate power acoustic show is always fun for me cause I can share more stories and really interact with the crowd!” 

Hoge recently returned from his 10th Wrangler National Patriot Tour, where he performed for our troops overseas. Following the release of the original singles  “That’ll Be The Day” and “Bad People,” Hoge performed on the nationally televised morning program, “Fox & Friends,” to celebrate Major League Baseball’s Opening Day.
