LOCASH HITS ROAD FOR “ONE BIG COUNTRY” TOUR
World Premiere of “One Big Country Song” Music Video to Hit CMT
NASHVILLE, TN September. 19, 2019 – The acclaimed Wheelhouse Records/BBR Music Group Country duo, LOCASH today announces plans to take its show, lauded by Billboard as “among the most energetic and entertaining in the Country Music genre,” on the road through March 2020, kicking off with a sold-out show tomorrow night in Michigan. Additionally, the music video for their latest single, “One Big Country Song,” will make its world premiere across CMT properties on September 24th before the twosome joins The Highway’s Music Row Happy Hour on Sirius XM with Buzz Brainard on September 27.
“One Big Country Song,” which earned LOCASH its biggest add date to date is an up-tempo bop with an important message in today’s world and reminds folks of our similarities, with AP saying it “opens its arms wide, something some country songs don’t.” The video itself demonstrates how people from all walks of life can come together to enjoy life—with the help of some cool special effects, viewers follow several pairs of Stetson hats and boots as they journey through their day. The music video for “One Big Country Song” will make its world premiere on CMT at 6am ET (and again at 8am ET) and on CMT Music at 6am ET (and eight more times throughout the day) and CMT.com on September 24th—see a sneak peek of the video in a behind the scenes piece HERE.
“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. The album was named not only after the undeniable bond the closer-than-kin twosome share but the worldly message that “we’re all brothers and sisters.”
“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.”
Fresh off Chris Young’s Raised on Country Tour and Rascal Flatts’ Summer Playlist Tour, the “separated at birth singing partners” (Rolling Stone) will be hitting the road once more, on “One Big Country” tour, with dates lined up through the end of the year. Joining them on select dates will be Country newcomer, Drew Baldridge—additional support has yet to be announced. See list of current dates, below.

Creating a sound that fuses modern Country and classic heartland rock with an edgy vocal blend, Wheelhouse Records’ LOCASH is the Country music duo made up of singer-songwriters Chris Lucas and Preston Brust; natives of Baltimore, Maryland, and Kokomo, Indiana, respectively. With two albums and eight charting singles to their credit, LOCASH broke out in 2015 with their gracious GOLD-certified hit, “I Love This Life,” followed by the flirtatious GOLD-certified #1 smash, “I Know Somebody” – their first trip to the top of the Country radio airplay charts – and 2017’s fun-loving romantic anthem “Ring on Every Finger.” All three singles were part of their album, THE FIGHTERS, which was released in the summer of 2016 to Top 15 success. In 2017, they earned their first round of awards show recognition, nominated at the ACM Awards for New Vocal Duo or Group of the Year, the CMT Music Awards for Duo Video of the Year (“I Know Somebody”), and the CMA Awards for Vocal Duo of the Year. The 2019 ACM Duo of the Year nominee released their latest album (and first with their new label BBR Music Group/BMG), Brothers on March 29, 2019.
