BBR Music Group/BMG’s Wheelhouse Records’ rowdy outliers LOCASH – comprised of Preston Brust and Chris Lucas – are escaping to the WOODS & WATER. Inspired by the wild-and-free EP out now, the WOODS & WATER TOUR 2022 launched this spring. Creating a signature sound that fuses modern Country and classic Heartland Rock with an edgy vocal blend, the Country music duo of singer-songwriters is widely known for mixing backwoods pride with big-picture positivity. Their latest album, BROTHERS (2019), featured GOLD #1 “One Big Country Song,” as the follow-up to the pair’s Top 15 THE FIGHTERS (2016), which boasted GOLD breakout “I Love This Life” and their first #1 with flirtatious GOLD smash “I Know Somebody.”
