Hoge debuted the single on stage at the Grand Ole Opry the day he co-wrote it with Philip Lammond. American Songwriter exclusively premiered the track. Hoge shared with the outlet, “I have always wanted to write a song about my dad. Family is so important and my relationship with dad means the world to me. My buddy Phillip and I agreed that paying homage to our dads would make for a great song. We both grew up fishing with our dads and thought writing about that time alone.”
Additional partners on the Father’s Day Prize Pack are Sportsman Channel, World Fishing Network and Congressional Sportsman Foundation.
The Nebraska native’s new series “Hoge Wild” will premiere June 29 on the Sportsman’s Channel. “Hoge Wild” takes viewers across the globe with the country singer as he travels to New Zealand, Bolivia, Africa and more. With a guitar in one hand and a bow in the other, Hoge is going wild in the great outdoors camping, fishing, hunting, exploring, diving and singing.
