NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Feb. 16, 2017) – LOCASH’s Chris Lucas and Preston Brust are celebrating their first major industry award nomination as ACM Awards® nominees in the New Vocal Duo or Group of the Year category.
As Country Aircheck’s No. 1 New Artist for 2016, the Reviver Records duo is fresh off their No. 1 smash single, “I Know Somebody” and their first RIAA Gold-Certified chart-topping single “I Love This Life.” “Ring On Every Finger,” LOCASH’s new sweet sentiment single that just begs to be danced to, recently premiered all over CMT channels and platforms.
