Hot country vocalist Lucas Hoge debuted on the Grand Ole Opry this weekend just weeks after his new album Dirty South shot up to No. 1 on the Billboard Country Album Sales chart.

"This has been a dream of mine since I was a kid and to have it finally come true is beyond words. I’m grateful for the opportunity to perform on the most historic stage in country music where so many legends have performed before me. I will forever cherish that night. Thank you to everyone at the Grand Ole Opry for making my debut the best night of my career," Hoge said.

Hoge recently released a brand-new Christmas album, Christmas Is Here, which includes the radio single “Home for the Holidays."

The small-town Nebraska native, who has shared the stage with legends like George Jones, Rascal Flatts, Rodney Atkins, Craig Morgan and Hank Williams Jr., is thrilled to be sharing these festive tracks with his fans.

This new album includes Christmas classics such as “White Christmas and “Silent Night” alongside four all-new songs, “Christmas Is Here,” “Ho Ho Home For The Holidays,” “Without Christ In Christmas” and “Baby's Got A Present,” which were co-written by Hoge.
