Entertainment, On A High Note

LoCash: one of country music’s newest up and coming duos

When the professional careers of the country duo LoCash began they released three singles. The first, “Here Comes Summer” which reached number 60 on the Billboard Charts. The duo’s second single, “Keep in Mind”, entered the top 40 on the country music chart in early 2011, with a follow up of “You Got Me” reaching number 52.

They have a new record deal with Reviver Records and also have a new single  called “I Love This Life,” which has entered the top 20 country charts and in July of 2015 the song made it to number 1 on Sirius The Highway.

These guys have come along way – from growing up in Kokomo, Indiana and Baltimore, Maryland to taking Nashville by storm with their wild breed of country rocking songs.

Lucas and Preston have hit the ground running – by promoting their latest single that is currently at number 12 on the charts. “I Love This Life” is by far the most successful single LoCash has had so far, but it will certainly not be their last.

Their entire EP of the same title is a defining music for LoCash – expressing who they are and where they really want to go with their music.

“There have been a lot of misconceptions about our music. Some people think we sound this way, or some people think we sound that way, and that’s fine, but we’re here this time to make sure everyone knows exactly what we sound like,” said the duo’s Brust.

All the songs on the EP are directed enough to lock signature songs in for Lucas and Brust and to set the path for their “true” future music career.

These guys are not just entertainers, they are also top songwriters, writing songs for artists like Tim McGraw and Keith Urban. Lucas and Brust wrote “You Gonna Fly,” which was a number one single for Keith Urban. They also wrote a lot of the songs on their own EP including their current single “I Love This Life.”

They wrote this song with country artist Chris Janson and hit songwriter Danny Myrick, who was also the lead singer for the band Western Flyer. Lucas and Brust started out as songwriters so that is the core of who they are and the music they create.

LoCash is currently on a national tour and working with artists such as Eli Young Band, Jake Owen, and Chris Janson. They have a schedule that would make any country music artist envious performing in most of the fifty states over the next few months.

LoCash was formerly called the LoCash Cowboys, but they changed their name, dropping the “Cowboys.” They are out there doing what they do best entertaining crowds, parting, and having loads of fun.
