Lucas Hoge #1 On Billboard Top Country Album Sales Chart With Debut ‘Dirty South’

LUCAS HOGE #1 ON BILLBOARD TOP COUNTRY ALBUMS SALES CHART WITH DEBUT DIRTY SOUTH

ALBUM LANDS AT #5 ON BILLBOARD TOP
COUNTRY ALBUMS CHART

Lucas Hoge, Rebel Engine Entertainment recording artist and Cabela’s Ambassador, lays claim to the #1 spot on the Billboard Top Country Albums Sales Chart, with the best-selling country album of the week. In addition, Hoge’s debut album lands at #5 on the Billboard Top Country Albums Chart, which includes album sales, streams and single track sales, moving up from #12.

As reported Monday in Music Row, the up-and-coming artist made an impressive debut last week at #3 with pre-sales, and has now made the climb to #1 this week just ahead of Chris Stapleton, Lady Antebellum and Joe Nichols.

Best known as host of Animal Planet’s Last Chance Highway, Hoge has made the transition into budding country star look easy. With his new single spinning on radio stations from Albany, NY and Orlando, FL to Monterey, CA and a #1 best-selling album to his credit, a humble Hoge is taking it all in stride.

“This experience has been so amazing and I can’t thank everyone enough for the support,” shares Hoge. “Purchasing music is one of the biggest compliments you can give to an artist, knowing people enjoy my music is so fulfilling!”

Hoge’s Dirty South Tour is equally impressive with stops at several iconic southern destinations just around the corner, with appearances at Sun Records in Memphis, The French Quarter in New Orleans, the Florida Everglades and Lookout Mountain, to name a few.

The video for “Dirty South” made its world premiere several weeks ago on CMT Music, and holds in the Top 10 on the CMT 12 Pack for the 2nd consecutive week, while Hoge was recently named one of Rolling Stone Country’s “10 New Country Artists You Need To Know.” He was also named NRA Country featured artist for the month of July.

Longtime brand ambassador for Cabela’s, Hoge also has a longstanding relationship with Wrangler National Patriot and was recently brought on board with Hero Outdoor Products.

With all the buzz surrounding his new release, it is clear Hoge is a star on the rise.
