Road trip!! Indianapolis IN and a venue called the “8 Seconds Saloon” was host to a rocking country concert Friday night headlining Nashville’s own LoCash Cowboys. The 8 Seconds is a large venue complete with a huge dance floor in the center, stage and seating along the side and a mechanical bull. This all presented the perfect venue for showcasing 2 amazing bands alongside one of Nashville’s hottest duos, Chris Lucas and Preston Brust of LoCash Cowboys.
The evening began with “Bad Country”, a Seymour, IN band who took the stage first like they owned it! And own it they should as they covered one great country song after another with confidence and great instrumentals backing the lead singer. The band is primarily local to Indiana with a large following and did a great job with their rockin’ country repertoire. If you are close to Central Indiana check them out on Facebook and catch a show of theirs!
The second opening act was “Florida Georgia Line” also from Nashville, TN when they aren’t out on their impressive tour dates, busily playing dates all over the US. They also rocked the socks off the audience with their rockin’ country band and, if I saw correctly, beat LoCash at cornhole earlier, 2-0! Sounds like a rematch is in order guys and a time for redemption! FGL can also be found at Facebook, Reverbnation and have their new song “Anything Like Me” currently available at iTunes and a new single release, “Cruise” will be available April 10.
As if these two rocking bands were not enough, the time finally came for the LoCash Cowboys to take the stage and capture the entire audience opening up with their next-to-be-released single C.O.U.N.T.R.Y!! (Stay tuned for my review of the next single!) The stage was set for Nashville talent at 8 Seconds and LoCash never let up for a minute and delivered all they know how to deliver – a wonderful night of old and new songs to the delight of their many, many fans from several states. Their fan base covers the US and I personally saw and met fans from Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Missouri, Illinois – I know there were fans from other states but I just did not get around to meeting them all.
We were treated to one of the best LoCash shows as they performed “You Gonna Fly”, the number 1 single they penned that Keith Urban took to the top, “Lovedrunk”, “Here Comes Summer”, “Keep In Mind” – and so many more of our favorites it was hard to keep up! It was an especially good night for Preston (originally from Kokomo IN) as he had his family there for a short reunion, as LoCash has just returned recently from entertaining our troops overseas.
The show ended as it began with C.O.U.N.T.R.Y. – their next single which I understand should be added April 30th to radio stations across the nation. It should be available May 1st so check their website faithfully for your place to purchase the song and get a preview of the song if you’ve never heard it yet. iTunes will be the first place you can purchase this great song. Better still, find yourself a show on the tour dates page at www.locashcowboys.com and go listen in person! C.O.U.N.T.R.Y. is a rocking grass roots country song with trucks, country girls, loving in the country and a dog! Country noise, Sweet Home “Alabam” – it is all about living in a country world with yee-haws, fiddling and a rocking beat that will take you home to the country even if you’ve never been privileged enough to live there! This song is one of the best combinations of new and old country I’ve heard yet and you are sure to love it and will find yourself dancing all alone while listening to it so be sure to crank it up and enjoy it like we do! Chris and Preston are impeccable as they blend their unique voices in harmony while also singing opposite of each others verses in their flawless performance. It’s a fun and upbeat song that is sure to climb the charts quickly!
While on their website you can also find “Right Here In Front of You”, “Here Comes Summer”, “Keep In Mind” and “You Got Me” – take a listen if you are new to the LoCash Cowboys and get ready to live C.O.U.N.T.R.Y. this summer! LoCash Cowboys can also be found at Facebook, Twitter and MySpace –choose one or choose all to follow and love yourselves some LoCash Cowboys!
