LUCAS HOGE SLATED FOR WRANGLER® NATIONAL PATRIOT TOUR

LUCAS HOGE SLATED FOR WRANGLER® NATIONAL PATRIOT TOUR

With Hoge as the Official Wrangler® National Patriot Artist, the Wrangler® National Patriot Program and Clothing Line Have Raised More Than $850,000 to Support The Needs of Wounded and Fallen Soldiers and Their Families
 
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (May 1, 2015) – In the words of Winston Churchill, "We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give." Freshly inked by Reviver Records and already tapped as Cabela’s® newest brand ambassador, bright-eyed newcomer Lucas Hoge, lives his life by that philosophy.

In his 2010 leading role on Animal Planet's “Last Chance Highway,” Hoge dedicated over a year of his life to find loving homes for stray and unclaimed shelter dogs who had been left abandoned with no where to go; and today, he continues to live out his philanthropic calling through support of the U.S. Military. In partnership with the all-American clothing line, Wrangler®, he will soon embark on the Wrangler® National Patriot Tour in observance of Memorial Day. As the only music artist on the tour, he will perform for brave servicemen and women at various forward operating bases throughout the Middle East.

"To get to be a part of this tour and spend one-on-one time with the heroes who are fighting every day for our freedom… it's a real honor for me,” Hoge said. But he knows the product of their sacrifice far outweighs anything he can do for them.

“I'm glad to try and bring some peace and comfort to them through my music, but having done these tours before, I've learned that what I get out of going and being there is far greater than anything I could ever give back. Just to meet our heroes face to-face, shake their hands, look them in the eye and thank them for what they do – that’s what this is all about. It's an unforgettable opportunity," he added.

In the time Hoge has served as the official Wrangler® National Patriot artist, the Wrangler® National Patriot Program and clothing line have collectively raised over $850,000 for wounded and fallen servicemen and women and their families. Contribution to those funds has come from the sale of Hoge’s self-penned, patriotic anthem, “Medal of Honor,” from which proceeds are donated per sale from the Wrangler® National Patriot website: wranglernationalpatriot.com.

Over the years, Hoge has toured throughout Iraq, Kuwait, Kosovo, Afghanistan, Hawaii, Alaska and the Middle East performing for U.S. military troops, and his songs "Soldier's Creed," and "Medal of Honor" are both featured on his Music for Our Troops CD, which pays tribute to military members for their daily sacrifices. He is also involved with ThanksUSA.org, a charity that helps military families obtain scholarships for education, and in acknowledgement of his love for animals, is the official spokesperson for Guardian Angels for Soldier’s Pet©, which fosters animals for soldiers while they are stationed overseas.

This spring and summer, Hoge will bring his traditional country sound and energy-packed performances to a slew of summer music festivals including the CMA Music Festival (Nashville, Tenn.), BackYard BBQ (Pueblo, Colo.), the Cuchara Country Music Festival (La Veta, Colo.), and many more.  He is also positioned to release a new single in 2015 called “Power of Garth” – a poignant ballad heralding the legacy of country icon Garth Brooks.

Though momentum will build as the small-town Nebraska native continues to chase his life-long dream in country music, he’ll always be focused on ‘giving back.’

Hoge was nominated for the Inspirational Country Music (ICM) Association’s “New Artist of The Year Award,” in 2011 after answering a woman’s dying wish to write a song inspired by her autobiographical poem, “How Was I To Know.”

BILL ANDERSON'S SEVEN DECADES OF WRITING

BILL ANDERSON'S SEVEN DECADES OF WRITING CREDITS SPAWN ANOTHER CHARTED COUNTRY SINGLE
WITH MO PITNEY'S "COUNTRY"

Country Legend Signs with Webster Public Relations for media representation
 
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (April 30, 2015) – With the recent chart success of “Country” from Curb recording artist Mo Pitney, the name of Bill Anderson once again enters the Country Music history books. The success of the track gives Anderson the distinction of having an entry on the country charts for seven straight decades – a record held by no other songwriter in the history of the format. The success is yet another example of Anderson’s enduring talent. Since the late 1950’s the South Carolina native has enjoyed being one of the most versatile artists to ever call Music City home, with success as a singer, songwriter, TV host, radio personality, and author to his credit, and Webster Public Relations is excited to announce that Anderson has signed with the company for media representation.

His first major success was writing “City Lights” for Ray Price in 1958 – when he was still a teenager. His writing career has evolved over the years, with his compositions ranging from “Saginaw, Michigan” (Lefty Frizzell), “Once A Day” (Connie Smith), “I May Never Get To Heaven” (Conway Twitty) all the way to modern-day classics from Kenny Chesney (“A Lot Of Things Different”), Brad Paisley and Alison Krauss (“Whiskey Lullaby”), and George Strait (“Give It Away”). Anderson stands alone as the most-awarded songwriter in Country Music history.

As an artist, Anderson signed with Decca Records in 1958, and immediately hit the Billboard charts with “That’s What It’s Like To Be Lonesome.” Future hits included the Pop crossover “Still,” “Mama Sang A Song,” “Where Have All Our Heroes Gone,” “Quits,” and 1978’s “I Can’t Get Any Longer,” which became one of the earliest fusions of Country and Disco. His career triumphs earned him an invitation in 1961 to join the Grand Ole Opry, in addition to elections to the Nashville Songwriters’ Hall of Fame and the Country Music Hall of Fame. He was also the first Country artist to receive the BMI Icon Award in 2001.

One of the earliest performers to use television to his advantage, Anderson hosted his own syndicated series in the 1960s and 1970s, and also co-hosted the ABC-TV game series The Better Sex (with Sarah Purcell), as well as the 1980s’ series Fandango on The Nashville Network. Working his way through college as an on-air radio personality, he has since hosted programs on TNNR (The Nashville Network Radio) and XM Radio. In 1989, the singer put his story on paper with the best-selling autobiography Whisperin’ Bill, as well as the 2003 follow-up I Hope You’re Living As High On The Hog As The Pig You Turned Out To Be. An updated version of his autobiography is being readied for release later this year or in early 2016.
