If you read a recent concert review here on Got Country Online a little over a month ago, you will know that the terms “early morning” and “low key” really do not define a LoCash Cowboys show. But at 8:00am on June 5th, 2014, members of the LoCash Army descended upon Puckett’s 5th & Church Restaurant for the third annual LoCash Cowboys fan club party.
Upon stepping into the popular Nashville eatery fans would see Chris Lucas and Preston Brust walking table to table around the room, greeting each fan individually and many on a personal level. It was an assigned table event but there was not a bad seat in the house, all with full view to the stage in which the duo would perform, accompanied only by their guitarist and a drum machine. After attendees were treated to a buffet style breakfast, including southern favorites such as grits, biscuits and gravy, and traditional breakfast fare, the guys hit the stage.
Being an acoustic and intimate setting, LoCash adhered to that environment when performing songs such as “You Gonna Fly” and “Truck Yeah”, songs in which they wrote and climbed the charts when recorded by Keith Urban and Tim McGraw respectively, in addition to songs from their self-titled album, like their opener and new single “Little Miss Crazy Hot”.
Getting personal in between songs, the duo would take questions from audience members and shared personal stories from their time together, including interesting tales of how the name LoCash Cowboys came to be, how Chris received the nickname “Wednesday” courtesy of Preston’s dog, and a hysterical account of Chris’ grandmothers ‘mouse tattoo’. Having their own family members and those of their entourage in attendance, LoCash paid acknowledgement to every one of them. They also acknowledged a long-time fan in attendance, Sandy Taylor, whom has recovered from serious health ailments and applauded her on her recovery. Concluding the event by greeting, posing for photos and autographs with every member in attendance, the guys of LoCash once again proved how much they love their fans.
The fans really do notice and appreciate the variation and dedication from the duo:
“When I love an artist, I love them” says attendee Kimberley Smith. “I adore LoCash and it was so great to get to see them in an acoustic setting. Because their shows are so high energy, it’s nice for them to just talk, play a few songs and get personal with the fans. It just shows their genuine personalities, telling jokes and stories from their lives as artists and beforehand. This is their third fan club party and it is the third one I’ve gone to. I plan on going every year that I can in the future. I love them, I adore them, and they really are the best. That raw talent, it’s there. It’s just hard to beat and that’s just it.”
Seeing Chris and Preston in such an intimate setting truly showed their talents and personalities as individuals and as a duo. It also showcased how appreciative and personal they are with their fans. To see if the LoCash Cowboys are coming to a town near you, check out their tour dates on www.locashcowboysmusic.com.
