LoCash Lands First No.1 on Sirus XM’s ‘The Highway’

locash

When LOCASH wrote the song “You Gonna Fly,” which became a No. 1 hit for Keith Urban in 2011, they had no idea how true those lyrics would become in 2015. The Reviver Records duo is indeed gonna fly — and they are already– as indicated this week with the No. 1 chart-topping placement of their latest single “I Love This Life,” on SiriusXM The Highway’s Hot 45 Weekend Countdown.

“This means a TON to us,” said the duo’s Chris Lucas from a LIVE telephone call Monday, July 13 with The Highway host Storme Warren. “It’s unbelievable. Our fans, they’re diehard fans, man… They’re great. We owe all of them for everything in our career and for getting us here to this point. We’ve always dreamed about getting a number one. I know our team, Reviver Records, is going nuts right now. We thank you guys,” he said.

Going from their No. 1 songwriting hit “You Gonna Fly,” straight to another smash in “Truck Yeah,” recorded by Tim McGraw in 2012, the duo proved their writing talent early in their career, and today, they’re proving their talent as performers.

“Having watched what you guys have done as journeymen,” Warren said to Lucas, “Rolling up your sleeves, never giving up, and playing anywhere you could plug your guitars and mics in to have the opportunity just to share what you guys do… You’ve gotten better and better as songwriters and as entertainers… and now it comes down to a moment like this.”

Lucas replied, “The fans keep it going, and people that believe in us, like SiriusXM… they have always believed in us. There were plenty of chances for people to give up on us, and for Preston and I to give up, but we just didn’t. We keep scrapping and clawing and we still have a long way to go, but this is a huge, huge milestone and step in our career right now.”

“So deep in our hearts, we want to thank the fans out there. You guys are the best. I don’t know anyone else better. And thanks to SiriusXM’s The Highway for giving us and all of the new artists in country music a chance,” Lucas added.

“I Love This Life” is currently No. 46 on the rolling chart, which measures airplay for the entire week. The song has received over 1.13 million streams on Spotify and has garnered a spot on Spotify’s Hot Country playlist.

LOCASH is currently out on the I Love This Life Tour presented by Kicker Audio.

At 35,000 feet above ground on a flight from Pittsburgh to Baltimore, rising country music duo LOCASH surprised a flight attendant with an impromptu concert for her birthday. The duo was taking a Southwest Airlines flight from their performance on Y108’s Tiki Town stage as part of Kenny Chesney’s concert in Pittsburgh to Baltimore, for their Saturday, May 30, show at Ram’s Head On Stage, when one of the flight attendants recognized the duo’s Preston Brust and Chris Lucas and asked them to help celebrate her colleague’s special day with a few songs.

Watch a snippit here.

With no hesitation as the the clouds cascaded by, the duo broke out their guitars and rocked the skies right from the plane’s cabin. They sang their current single “I Love This Life,” which is currently at No. 47 on the Country Billboard chart and swiftly climbing, alongside their newly recorded “I Know Somebody,” penned by Rhett Akins, Ross Copperman and Jeremy Stover. Fellow passengers on board excitedly whipped out their cell phones to capture it all on video.

View additional exclusive performances from LOCASH on Country Now as part of the critically-acclaimed series, “Live From Blackbird,” which features acoustic performances from country music’s top artists in an intimate studio setting at the famed Blackbird Studios.

Nashville got Shipwrecked as Reviver Records country duo Locash celebrated the release of their new signature wine line. With celebrity friends, industry executives and media professionals in attendance, Chris Lucas and Preston Brust of the duo in partnership with Stonum Vineyards of Lodi, CA showcased their premiere artisan wine line, Shipwrecked, at an exclusive VIP wine release party at a private home in Brentwood.

Set against the backdrop of a beautiful sunset, Locash played an acoustic set of some of their best-loved singles, including the wine’s namesake song, “Shipwrecked,” and mingled with the more than 70 VIP guests who attended. Locash credited Jon Ozor, owner of Stonum Vineyards with making the wine a reality and playing a tremendous part of their recent success. In honor of Jon’s efforts, Locash presented him with a solid bronze, single-edition Stetson hat. After playing their set, Locash spent more than two hours with guests, entertaining them with stories of making the wine, providing wine tasting tips, and signing dozens of empty Shipwrecked Sauvignon Blanc bottles as souvenirs of the incredibly successful launch.

Handcrafted in partnership with Stonum Vineyards’ winemaker Michael Stonum and Ozor, Shipwrecked is made using a labor intensive, old world style only known to one other wine label in the world. Using grapes sourced from only the highest quality single vineyards of northern California, the label’s springtime debut, a Sauvignon Blanc, is now available at shipwreckedwines.com.

Locash is slated to release a Cabernet blend, Chardonnay, old vine Zifandel and Syrah over the next two years.

“We have always been huge wine guys,” said the duo’s Preston Brust.”It was really exciting to get to share this product that we’ve put so much hard work into with all of our friends here in Music City – we had a blast.”

Named for one of Locash’s forthcoming new songs, the duo says Shipwrecked is a state of mind. “Whether you’re ‘shipwrecked’ on an island in literal terms, ‘shipwrecked’ at your job, in a relationship or some other way in your personal life, things can always be made better by great friends, great music and great wine,” said Chris Lucas. The duo’s current single “I Love This Life,” is currently climbing the country radio charts, and is available for download on iTunes now.
