Chris Janson rose to fame when his independently-released single “Buy Me a Boat” hit No. 1 on the iTunes country music charts in 2015. That same song has earned him three Academy of Country Music Awards nominations, including New Male Vocalist of the Year. With an impressive resume that includes 60 performances at the Grand Ole Opry, Janson has built a reputation as being a thrilling live performer. His debut album, including the new single “Power of Positive Drinkin’,” hit country radio in October 2015.

LOCASH, comprised of Preston Brust and Chris Lucas, have been traveling coast to coast promoting their new music, and leaving a significant impression along the way. With a stage presence that is well-seasoned, the duo delivers a solid performance with their carefully constructed set list. LOCASH topped country charts in late 2015 with the No. 2 hit “I Love This Life.” Brust and Lucas wrote the optimistic song with Chris Janson and Danny Myrick, with whom they also wrote Tim McGraw’s “Truck Yeah.” They released “I Love This Life” EP in October 2015 and are currently recording their full length album. Their latest single is “I Know Somebody.”
