Lucas Hoge Receives Inspirational Country Music Award

Male Vocalist Of The Year Nomination


Nashville, Tenn. (August 2, 2012) – Country recording artist Lucas Hoge has received the Inspirational Country Music (ICM) Awards nomination for Male Vocalist of the Year.
He joins an impressive list of celebrity nominees, including Tim
McGraw, Alan Jackson, Keith Urban, Martina McBride, Vince Gill, Josh
Turner, and Ricky Skaggs, to name a few.

This will mark his third visit to the ICM Awards, at which he’s
performed the last two consecutive years and was nominated last year in
the New Artist of the Year category.

Hoge recently released his latest single, Have I Done Something, to Christian country radio. He initially gained recognition from the Christian country genre with previous single How Was I To Know
– an answer to a dying woman’s wish and inspired by her poem. Hoge
performed the single, which landed at number two on the charts, at the
2011 ICMs surrounded by more than 100 breast cancer survivors. Have I Done Something
was co-written by songwriter Jeff Dayton and was inspired by a story
Hoge saw on the news. “I remember watching the news one day and thinking
to myself ‘I wish there was something I could do,’ and asking myself
‘had I done something to help someone else?'”

Hoge is also currently promoting his single at country radio, Do What Makes You Feel Good. Both singles are part of his sophomore, self-titled studio album, which is now available on iTunes, CD Baby, and

The ICM Awards are set to take place on October 18th at 6:30pm at the
Schermerhorn Nashville Symphony and will be airing live on television.

About Lucas Hoge:
Despite a start that included a 500-square-foot apartment and
construction work, Hubbell, Nebraska native Lucas Hoge has found a place
in both the country and Christian genres. His first break came when his
song, If I Only Could, was featured on their hit series Smallville. Shortly
after, Hoge scored a 13-episode HBO series, wrote a jingle for Lipton
Tea, and took his talent to the studio, where he recorded two country
albums and a Christian EP. His rigorous tour schedule has taken him
to Denmark, Norway, Sweden, the Middle East performing for the troops,
and to major motorcycle rallies across the country (Sturgis included).
In 2011, Hoge made his debut at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville along
side George Jones and received a standing ovation for his performance.
Although his music career keeps him busy, he continues to make time for
those causes closest to his heart, including, Guardian
Angels for a Soldier’s Pet, and Wrangler National Patriot. For more
