I believe I recognize the name Lucas Hoge. He might be one of those artists that have been around for a few years looking for a breakthrough. I’ll have to go back and do some digging on that, but for now we’re going to focus on the present.
I wasn’t sure what to expect with the title of this song. Was it going to be an uptempo rocker? Was it going to be a play on that Luke Bryan song with the same words repeated a few times in the chorus?
I don’t know, but let’s check it out.
Boom Boom – Lucas Hoge
So it’s a love song. It’s kind of a mid-tempo one that hits home with the soft side of life. The guy in the song is out here confessing his love to this girl. He’s been, from what it sounds like, some rough times in his life. Maybe he hasn’t made the right decisions in the past. Maybe he’s been out enjoying his younger days, but he finally realizes he’s ready to settle down.
And he’s going out on a limb with this one. He’s putting his feelings out there. He doesn’t know if the girl is feeling the same way. He’s pretty sure that she is, but he’s not sure. And that’s a scary position to be in. You’re very vulnerable.
This is a good one. I think fans are going to like this. I don’t know if Lucas and his team will get it out at radio, but there’s always a chance especially in today’s country world.
