“Power of Garth,” the third single off Lucas Hoge’s Billboard No. 1 album Dirty South, continues to climb country radio charts as Parade.com premieres the video in which Hoge “steps back into his boyhood shoes to deliver a touching tribute to an icon” (Parade/Laura Whitmore).
The single pays tribute to iconic entertainer Garth Brooks and was co-written by Terry McBride, who has written multiple No. 1 hits for Garth Brooks. “I’m humbled and honored to be able to cut songs like this from some of the greatest songwriters of our generation, and I will be forever grateful to Matt Rogers and Terry McBride for giving me their blessing to record this song,” Hoge said.
Programmers and music directors across the country are just as excited about the single:
“Never have I ever heard a song as amazing as this! Move over Friends in Low Places, make room He Stopped Loving Her Today, the new single by Lucas Hoge is the best country record I have heard in 19 years! Simply put, it is a masterpiece!”
–Jimmy Lehn, WCTY, Connecticut
“Lucas provides the audio equivalent of a Norman Rockwell painting. We received emotional feedback from listeners that were raised on Garth. Cassettes may be a vessel of the past but the memories remain stronger than ever. That’s the power of Lucas! ”
–Tony Michaels, KSUX, Iowa
“THIS IS A HIT SONG! I got goosebumps listening to this song. That Never Happens to me. This is exactly how I felt about Country Music growing up, it’s why I became a fan and why I still Love Country Music Today.”
–KRGI, Derek Beck, Nebraska
“Wow! This song will be huge!!”
–KTHK, Don Jarrett, Idaho Falls
