LoCash Cowboys Sign with Average Joes Entertainment
Dec 10, 2012
Average Joes Entertainment announced Thursday, December 6, 2012 that the LoCash Cowboys sealed a deal to join the roster with famed country artists Colt Ford, Corey Smith, JJ Lawhorn, Kevin Fowler, Laurent Briant, Sunny Ledfurd, Montomery Gentry, Josh Gracin, Ira Dean (formerly of Trick Pony), Matt Stillwell, and JB and the Moonshine Band.
Chris Lucas and Preston Brust have released three singles since 2010 – “Here Comes Summer” which was extremely upbeat and high energy and made a wonderful video of the highlights of summer. This was followed by “You Got Me”, a very catchy love song and lastly a closer to the heart ballad “Keep in Mind” which can be a tear jerker for many who can relate to the words, like Chris who dedicates this song to his late father and as well to a former member of the group, Ryan “Troop” Jones who was taken from this life too early and is now fiddling in heaven since October of 2011.
Following their releases they have enjoyed songwriting fame and huge successes first with “You Gonna Fly”, co-written with Jaren Johnston, picked up and taken to No. 1 by Keith Urban and most recently “Truck Yeah”, co-written with Danny Myrick and Chris Janson. “Truck Yeah” was recorded by Tim McGraw who took it to gold standard quickly.
Average Joes Entertainment has produced a new video by LoCash for Christmas -- “What Time Is It” which features all of the band and many family members of the LoCash family including the newest member to the family, little Caden Lucas! It is a wonderful Christmas song and video which premiered on GAC Friday, December 7, 2012. The song will appear on Colt Ford’s new album, “An Average Joes Muddy Christmas” which features 13 tracks with many artists from Average Joes own roster including a few others.
The album is available for purchase online at most e-stores where you can purchase either an audio CD (which I did!) or in downloadable formats. Merry Christmas to Average Joes Entertainment and LoCash Cowboys!

The Adelphia/The Gallery is a combination music venue and excellent restaurant operated by some gracious and very friendly managers and showcases … more
