It's summer - it's 2011 - and it's a new single release from the LoCash Cowboys who are taking Nashville and America to new heights in country music this year. "You Got Me" is their third release in a year, beginning with "Here Comes Summer" which cracked the top 40 on Billboard and earned the boys a place inside the top five in the video voting on CMT Pure Country and GAC countdowns. The first released single was followed by "Keep In Mind" which climbed to 35 on the charts just a few months ago. They are keeping up the momentum with this new single of theirs and, for you who already have the original on the CD's purchased from their shows, this is a new and exciting 2011 mix and it is available on iTunes at http://bit.ly/YGMiTunes and Amazon at http://amzn.to/YGMAmazon. There is also an upcoming debut album to be released at a later date from R&J Records and produced by Jeffrey Steele.
The song is an uplifting and upbeat tune about being in love - driving down the road, feet kicked up on the dashboard, skin kissed by the sun - feeling good, living right, wanting your touch, well..you get the picture - "You Got Me"!! Chris Lucas and Preston Brust are their best in this new single with their perfect range of harmony and tone accentuated with the instrumentals of the band that are uniquely LoCash.
The duo has been actively writing as well this year, cowriting one of Keith Urban's newest songs "You Gonna Fly" which was released on his latest CD "Get Closer". They also hit a high point in their career on May 7th when they debuted on the Grand Old Opry!
CMA Fest kept them busy with the Kickoff Parade, appearing in the Country Weekly Fashion Show, playing in the City of Hope Celebrity Softball Challenge and performing again this year on the Chevy Riverfront Stage and receiving a well-earned and glowing review in the Tennessean and the Hard Rock Cafe was the venue for their first ever Fan Club Party during CMA Fest. LoCash has worked very hard to attain this level of success and they have deservedly arrived!
On June 8th, we were all treated to "dinner" with Chris and Preston via the Travel Channel's new series, Man v. Food Nation hosted by Adam Richman as he and Vince gill and everyone at Rooster's Texas Style BBQ in Nashville cheered them through a 72-ounce steak challenge. Great job guys - you made me feel full just watching!
Chris and Preston are also extremely active in charitable causes and are spokespersons for D.A.R.E. as well as having raised money for St. Jude Children's Hospital the W.O. Smith School, T.J. Martell Foundations and the Alex Le'Vasseur Memorial Fund which was established by Jeffrey Steele in memory of his son.
