Billboard-topping country music singer Lucas Hoge has garnered over 25 million streams on his live-streamed gospel videos “Sunday Sessions” and now the singer is releasing a live recording of the classic gospel tune, “Sweet By and By.”
“I’ve been doing #SundaySessions for more than two years now. It’s a passion of mine and we’ve never missed a Sunday. I love that people are enjoying these old hymns as much as I do,” Hoge told The Christian Post.
The midwestern crooner, who’s been highlighted on Hallmark's daytime talk show “Home & Family,” said his new live recording of the classic hymn comes at the perfect time.
“I’m glad we can release these live versions digitally during this unprecedented time of our lives. God sure does give us comfort through music, so I hope these songs bring joy to everyone during this crazy time in history,” Hoge said about his single coming out during the global coronavirus pandemic.
