In the spirit of summertime fun, “Flip Flops” captures the excitement welcoming that someone special into your world. He grew up on a farm but she has never seen one … she has experienced the mysteries of the ocean but he has never been to one.
“This track is upbeat, fun and truthful. My buddy had the idea for the song title and I wanted the message to reflect my life on the farm in comparison to the first time I saw the ocean. The line ‘this girl on my arm has never seen a farm and she couldn’t believe I’d never been to the ocean’ is written from a chapter of my life 10 years ago. That ‘girl’ became my wife (Laura Lynn Thorsen) and when she heard I’d never seen the ocean, she made flight reservations that very day for us to head to the west Coast!”
The essence of Lucas Hoge’s latest single (co-written with JD Wood) is to open your eyes to the world around you. The lyrics tell us this ‘new’ world can be quite fun to explore “…The moon’s up gonna need a little light to help you find those flip flops and bikini tops…”.
The tune, released by Reviver Records and Sony Red Distribution, will impact radio on August 4 and is off his upcoming EP (scheduled for an early fall release). The Nebraska native’s earlier albums include If I Could Only Hope and Dirt.
Lucas has performed for troops in the Middle East and is involved with Guardian Angels for a Soldiers Pet and ThanksUSA.org, a charity that helps military families with education scholarships. The multi-talented artist was the host and star of Animal Planet’s Last Chance Highway (he also wrote and performed the show’s theme song).
