LoCash Cowboys in
Concert Review by Connie Breeden, Staff Journalist
visiting with my parents in Florida this past weekend, I
was delighted to see LoCash Cowboys were appearing
nearby. I'm always excited when able to catch up with
this talented and extraordinary duo and I knew my
parents would enjoy seeing them in concert. It's no
secret Chris Lucas and Preston Brust are pure dynamite
on stage but the high energy these two had in Brandenton
was like watching a fourth of July fireworks show in the
middle of November.
When I last saw LoCash back in Tennessee at the end of
August, "Here Comes Summer" was topping out in the CMT
and GAC top video's. Now the second song "Keep In Mind"
off their CD titled This is How We Do It is out
on radio and is rapidly moving up the charts.
Watching these guys perform never gets old since they
are always adding something new to the show. This time
they took the playful and rowdy audience back to the
eighty's with their version of Prince's soft ballad
"Purple Rain" before rocking out to some Motley Crue
with "Home Sweet Home." Then, their unexpected special
guest, a gal from the audience who apparently wanted to
be a LoCash band member, waltzed up on the stage and
grabbed Brusts microphone right out of his hand, while
they were in the middle of their rendition of Lynyrd
Skynyrd's "Free Bird". The whole place started laughing
hysterically as Brust and Lucas looked at each other and
out at the crowd and asked, "What just happened here?"
It was definitely a Kodak moment, or as my photographer
would say, a Canon moment. All I know for sure is if I
had been able to capture it all on video, I would
definitely be the $100,000 winner on ABC TV's
Americas Funniest Videos.
The LoCash Cowboys have something new to be thankful for
this holiday season. Just a couple of weeks ago they got
a call informing them one of the songs they wrote, "You
Gonna Fly," had been recorded by one of country's very
talented, and best known artist's, Keith Urban. The song
is the second cut on his latest CD, Get Closer.
Urban's CD is in stores now. I can't think of a better
way to end the year for two more deserving artists than
with this news.
So just "Keep In Mind", if you should ever see rockets
bursting in air, fireworks in the sky, on a chilly
November night, it just might not be your imagination,
it could be that the LoCash Cowboys are close by.
