LoCash (sometimes stylized as LOCASH), formerly known as LoCash Cowboys, is an American country music duo composed of songwriters and vocalists Chris Lucas and Preston Brust. They are natives of Baltimore, Maryland and Kokomo, Indiana, respectively. The duo has released one album each for Average Joes Entertainment and Reviver Records, and has charted seven singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs and/or Country Airplay charts. Their highest-charting single is "I Love This Life", which reached a peak of No. 2 on the latter chart in early 2016. In addition to their own material, the members of LoCash co-wrote Keith Urban's No. 1 single "You Gonna Fly" and Tim McGraw's "Truck Yeah".

History[edit]

The duo was initially signed to R&J Records (formerly Stroudavarious Records), for which they released three singles. The first, "Here Comes Summer",[1] debuted at number 60 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for the week ending May 8, 2010.[2] The song was made into a music video which aired on CMT.[1] LoCash Cowboys also performed at the Bama Jam Music fest in June 2010.[3] The duo's second single, "Keep in Mind", entered top 40 on the country music chart in early 2011. Followup "You Got Me" reached number 52.

In 2012, the LoCash Cowboys released the single "C.O.U.N.T.R.Y." through Average Joes Entertainment.[4] The song was originally intended to be the fourth single from their debut album, but was held back due to the closing of R&J Records. The video premiered July 31, 2012 on GAC. A dance remix of "C.O.U.N.T.R.Y." featuring Colt Ford was also released, and was included on the album Mud Digger, Vol. 3, also from Average Joes.

Brust and Lucas co-wrote Keith Urban's 2011 single "You Gonna Fly"[5] and Tim McGraw's 2012 single "Truck Yeah".

In late 2014-early 2015, the duo renamed itself LOCASH and released a new single, "I Love This Life", via Reviver Records.[6] It became their first Top 10 hit in late 2015. The EP album's second single, "I Know Somebody" released to country radio on February 22, 2016. Their second album, since left a Average Joes and so were signed a label Reviver Records and call The Fighters released in June 17, 2016.

To this day, LOCASH still uses its YouTube channel under the name "LoCashCowboysVEVO"
