Reviver Records’ breakout duo LOCASH continued to strike GOLD in a stellar 2017 with their chart-topping single “I Know Somebody.” The song was officially certified GOLD by the RIAA, recognizing the track’s 500,000 sales and streams combined.
“We can’t thank Country radio, Reviver Records and our fans enough for helping to make ‘I Know Somebody’ our second GOLD record! Every download, every stream and every time you push play means the world to us,” said LOCASH.
Written by Rhett Akins, Ross Copperman and Jeremy Stover, the flirty, hook-heavy “I Know Somebody” marks the pair’s second GOLD-certified single, following breakthrough smash “I Love This Life.” The two songs, along with Top 15 hit “Ring On Every Finger,” combine to make LOCASH the second-most played duo at Country radio in 2017. A testament to their impact on the format, the twosome is currently up for CRS 2018 New Faces of Country Music, which recognizes emerging artists who have achieved significant radio success.
Poised to continue topping charts in 2018, the duo released their next single, “Don’t Get Better Than That,” on December 29, 2017. The track is the first look at their second album with Reviver Records following 2016’s THE FIGHTERS, which received critical acclaim and Top 15 success.
Fans can catch LOCASH on the road throughout the remainder of the year, bringing the party to nearly a dozen cities. For more information on tour dates, visit www.locashmusic.com
ABOUT LOCASH: LOCASH is a Country music duo made up of singer-songwriters Chris Lucas and Preston Brust, natives of Baltimore, Maryland, and Indianapolis, Indiana, respectively. With a sound that fuses modern Country and classic heartland Rock with an edgy vocal blend, the independently-minded partners are revered as “one of Nashville’s hardest-working acts” (Rolling Stone) whose live show “has consistently been among the most energetic and entertaining in the country music genre” (Billboard). With two albums and eight charting singles to their credit, LOCASH broke out in 2015 with their gracious GOLD-certified hit, “I Love This Life,” and followed up with the flirtatious #1 smash, “I Know Somebody” – their first trip to the top of the Country radio airplay charts – and 2017’s fun-loving romantic anthem “Ring On Every Finger.” All three singles were part of their Reviver Records album debut, THE FIGHTERS, which was released in the summer of 2016 to Top 15 success. As songwriters, Lucas and Brust have scored two undeniable hits (Keith Urban’s #1 “You Gonna Fly” in 2011 and Tim McGraw’s PLATINUM-certified “Truck Yeah” in 2012). In 2017, they earned their first round of awards show recognition, nominated at the ACM Awards for New Vocal Duo or Group of the Year, the CMT Music Awards for Duo Video of the Year (“I Know Somebody”), and the CMA Awards for Vocal Duo of the Year.
