In 2015, the LoCash Cowboys duo has enjoyed hits with songs such as “Keep In Mind” and “The Best Seat In The House,” and have written such hits as the chart-topping “You Gonna Fly” for Keith Urban and “Truck Yeah” for Tim McGraw. They have built their brand through live performances, as well – with appearances on some of the most prestigious stages in the world, and have shared stages with acts ranging from Tim McGraw to Kiss. Their music has received over ten million view on YouTube, and they are known as one of the hardest working acts in the music business today.
But, the best is yet to come for the duo of Chris Lucas and Preston Brust – now simply known as LOCASH. Recently signing with Reviver Records, the duo is joining forces with some of the biggest names on the Country Music business landscape. Brust says they could feel the team’s energy from the first meeting. “We haven’t felt an energy like this since the day we began our journey. This feels like it has all come together –the right label head, the right promo team, it finally feels like we’ve got all of our ducks in a row for the first time in our lives. We’ve been out there doing the grass roots thing for so long, and to feel it all come together, is so encouraging.”

Sea Gayle Records/Arista Nashville hitmaker Jerrod Niemann offers a taste of his new upcoming album, produced by Niemann with Jimmie Lee Sloas, with “Blue Bandana,” an ode to the nation’s music festivals. “Blue Bandana” follows his RIAA Gold-certified multi-week No. 1 smash, “Drink to That All Night,” from his High Noon album. Niemann co-wrote eight of the 13 tracks on High Noon, the follow-up to his acclaimed, musically adventurous 2012 release, Free the Music.
Niemann’s chart-topping major-label debut, 2010’s Judge Jerrod & The Hung Jury, produced the No. 1 smash and RIAA-certified Platinum digital single, “Lover, Lover,” and the Top 5 and RIAA-certified Gold digital single, “What Do You Want.” His sophomore release, Free The Music, hit shelves last year and featured the Top 15 single “Shinin’ On Me” and the poignant ballad “Only God Could Love You More.”
Niemann has quickly become a fan and industry favorite, earning award nominations from the ACM, CMA, CMT and the American Country Awards, while headlining his own shows and touring with such artists as Dierks Bentley, Brad Paisley and Keith Urban.

“Few individuals have symbolized the South in popular culture as directly and indelibly as Charlie Daniels.” Encyclopedia of Southern Culture
Charlie Daniels is partly Western and partly Southern. His signature “bullrider” hat and belt buckle, his lifestyle on the Twin Pines Ranch (a boyhood dream come true), his love of horses, cowboy lore and the heroes of championship rodeo, Western movies, and Louis L’Amour novels, identify him as a Westerner. The son of a lumberjack and a Southerner by birth, his music – rock, country, bluegrass, blues, gospel – is quintessentially Southern.
In fact, even his bent for all things Western is Southern, because his attire, his lifestyle and his interests are historically emblematic of Southern working class solidarity with the “lone cowboy” individualism of the American West. It hasn’t been so much a style of music, but more the values consistently reflected in several styles that has connected Charlie Daniels with millions of fans. For decades, he has steadfastly refused to label his music as anything other than “CDB music,” music that is now sung around the fire at 4-H Club and scout camps, helped elect an American President, and been popularized on a variety of radio formats.
