LOCASH announces tour plans
Thursday, September 19, 2019
– LOCASH today announces plans to be on the road through March 2020, kicking off with a sold-out show tomorrow night in Michigan.
Dates were announced through mid-December. Drew Baldridge will open six of the shows.
The duo announced the music video for their latest single, "One Big Country Song," will make its world premiere across CMT properties on Sept. 24. The video itself demonstrates how people from all walks of life can come together to enjoy life.
"Our goal for the video was to somewhat extend the sing-along moment that this song creates in our live show and capture the feeling of bringing people from every walk of life together to enjoy a moment," said Preston Brust of LOCASH. "TK McKamy, who directed the video, had the know-how and the excitement to bring it all together and drive it home. He's the man. We're so proud of the end result."
Written by Jesse Frasure, Ashley Gorley, Michael Hardy and produced by Corey Crowder and Florida Georgia Line's Tyler Hubbard, "One Big Country Song" is the lead track off the pair's latest album, Brothers.
"We're so grateful to our incredible partners who worked with us on this - TK is one of the best directors we've ever worked with," said Chris Lucas of LOCASH. "We've also been a part of the Stetson, Roper and Tin Haul family for more than a decade and loved being able to bring them in on this video as an exclusive partner and highlight the brand with some cool, stand out moments."

CD reviews for LoCash
While some wondered whether bro country's long and very successful run (a sub-genre that traditionalists have long resented) was about to end, a quick spin of the leadoff track on Locash's "Brothers" will tell you that the formula is still alive and well. The catchy and glossy "One Big Country Song" is an everyman's anthem that equates how our individual journeys in life relate to a country song.

Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»

John Paul White opined with a glint in his eyes that his songs were not of the uplifting variety. In fact, they were downright dark. How else to explain "The Long Way" with the line "long way home back to you." Or "James," a song inspired by his grandfather who suffered from dementia.
But lest you think that the Alabama... »»»
