NASHVILLE, TENN. (March 1, 2018) – Reviver Records breakout duo LOCASH continues to prove their status as one of Country’s most promising acts with two nominations at the upcoming 53rd Academy of Country Music Awards™. Setting the tone for a stellar 2018, the pair will compete for Vocal Duo of the Year as well as New Vocal Duo or Group of the Year to be broadcasted live on the CBS Television Network on Sunday, April 15.
“Waking up to two ACM nominations is like waking up on Christmas morning. Such a special gift and one we don’t take for granted. We have been blown away by all of the congratulations and well wishes!” said Preston Brust of LOCASH.
“It’s an honor to be nominated for an ACM award, and having two nominations is a feeling we’ll never forget! Thank you to Country radio for every spin, thank you to everyone who believed in us and thank you to the ACM for this amazing moment!” added LOCASH’s Chris Lucas.
The announcement adds fuel to the twosome’s red-hot career following their first round of awards show recognition in 2017, a pair of GOLD-certified singles and the release of chart-rising energetic anthem “Don’t Get Better Than That.” Co-penning the ode to life’s most unforgettable moments (alongside Lindsay Rimes and Phil Barton), LOCASH “double down on the glass-half-full attitude” (Billboard) with the lead single from their forthcoming Reviver Records sophomore album.
After a high-profile performance for an all-star crowd during Super Bowl LII celebrations, the duo is rolling full force through a jam-packed schedule of headlining shows across the U.S. Beginning March 30 they will hit the road with Billy Currington, bringing their “arena rock swagger” (Rolling Stone) and renowned party-starting energy as direct support for the Country hit maker through September.

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,” followed by the flirtatious GOLD-certified #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. The follow up to THE FIGHTERS is expected in 2018, with the forthcoming album’s first single “Don’t Get Better Than That” available now on all digital platforms. 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. This spring LOCASH will hit the road with Country hit maker Billy Currington after spending 2017 headlining shows and sharing the bill with Faith Hill and Tim McGraw on select dates of the SOUL 2 SOUL TOUR.
