CMT Music Awards-nominated duo LOCASH capture a countrified spirit of inclusivity with their new single, “One Big Country Song.”
Serving as the lead track on their March-released Brothers album, “One Big Country Song” is a feel-good standout with a message that seems more necessary with each day’s news. Written by Jesse Frasure, Ashley Gorley and Michael Hardy, its big-picture theme is all about focusing on the things we share in common – from the drive to succeed to the need to unwind every weekend. And with Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard turning the knobs as co-producer to Corey Crowder, the track features a big helping of chill-country flavor.
“’One Big Country Song’ has become one of my favorites off the album,” says LOCASH’s Chris Lucas. “Mid-show one day I randomly decided we should try it out live. From that moment on, I was hooked – it’s so much fun to perform and you can tell from the stage, it just sparks something in people.”
“Turn it up and sing along / We all work ’til the daylight’s gone / We all knock off the edge around five / Fall in love from a kiss on Friday night / And we’ve all had a broken heart / We’ve all closed down a few good bars / Take a look around, y’all, tell me I’m wrong / Ain’t the whole wide world just one big country song?” goes the upbeat chorus.
“We love country music because it has such a natural way of bringing people together and bringing joy to people’s lives,” the duo’s Preston Brust adds. “I feel like this song has the ability to do that and I want to thank country radio and all of the fans for believing in it, too.”
LOCASH first struck country Gold with 2015’s “I Love This Life” and followed up with 2016’s chart-topping “I Know Somebody.” They’re up for Duo Video of the Year for “Feels Like a Party” at the 2019 CMT Music Awards, and will appear on the Chevy Riverfront Stage at Nashville’s CMA Music Festival June 8th. After that they’ll spend the rest of the summer bouncing between fair and festival dates, as well as opening slots on Rascal Flatts’ Summer Playlist Tour and Chris Young’s Raised on Country Tour.
