Lucas Hoge Releases "Let It Snow" Featuring Jamie O'Neal, Available Today
Billboard No. 1 charting artist Lucas Hoge releases first track from upcoming Christmas album 12.25, "Let It Snow" Featuring Jamie O'Neal. Sounds Like Nashville exclusively premiered a 'First Listen' to the track, praising that Hoge's version "is every bit cheery and cozy, while also brimming with playful holiday romance." The host of "Hoge Wild" enlists ACM award-winning Jamie O'Neal for the classic duet, whose "velvety harmonies perfectly meld with Hoge's charming croons."
"I've always been a Christmas music NUT and have wanted to record the classic 'Let It Snow' as a duet because it's one of those joyfully playful songs that everybody loves," Hoge shared with Sounds Like Nashville. "I've been a huge fan of Jamie O'Neal and her amazing voice, so it was no question that I wanted to perform this song with her. Kent Wells brought this vision to life and so much more on the project, including another amazing duet with the incredibly talented Skip Ewing. I hope this record will turn into a family tradition in everyone's home this Christmas and each one after."
O'Neal tells Sounds Like Nashville, "It was so much fun doing 'Let It Snow' with Lucas who’s an old friend and what a singer! I think we sound great together on this classic song, can’t wait for y’all to hear it."
12.25 is produced by GRAMMY®-nominated Kent Wells (Dolly Parton) and features collaborations with ACM/CMA/TONY-nominated Skip Ewing and platinum-selling singer-songwriter Jamie O'Neal. The album features re-imagined classics as well as four original songs from Hoge and will be available November 16.
