For the LoCash guys, Preston Brust and Chris Lucas, there's no such thing as time off, even when they're 35,000 feet in the air. Recently, the duo was on a Southwest flight, heading from performing at Kenny Chesney's concert in Pittsburgh to a show in Baltimore, Md., when they found themselves performing mid-flight.
A flight attendant recognized the two singers and asked Brust and Lucas if they would help her co-worker celebrate her birthday by performing a few songs. LoCash immediately said yes and launched into their current single, "I Love This Life," as well as a brand-new song, "I Know Somebody."
"I Love This Life" and "I Know Somebody" are both from an upcoming project from LoCash, although they admit that they aren't exactly sure of the details just yet.
“We’ve already recorded some songs for the EP-slash-album — I don’t know which yet,” Brust tells The Boot. “I don’t get caught up in that kind of stuff as much. I just want to make sure we have great songs. We’re song guys.”
"I Love This Life," which Brust and Lucas wrote, was the perfect single to kick off their upcoming set of tunes.
“We’re not trying to change the world, and it’s not rocket science, and it’s not a real deep song; it’s just something that makes you feel good,” Brust tells The Boot. “When Chris and I took it out on the road, and we started performing it … the very first time we played it, everybody’s hands [were] up in the air, everybody started smiling, everybody started moving, and it was like, okay, we’ve got something here.”
LoCash have a busy summer planned, as they'll be crossing the country on their 2015 I Love This Tour, which includes performances at both Country Jam 2015 and the 2015 Taste of Country Music Festival, both in June. In addition to their sets during the festivals, they'll be headlining the Campground Party at both events.
