Locash Turns The Cameras To Fans + Upcoming Tour Dates

LOCASH TURNS THE CAMERAS TO THEIR FANS IN NEW "I LOVE THIS LIFE" MUSIC VIDEO

Video for Duo's Highest-Charting Single To-Date To Make WORLD PREMIERE on CMT and all CMT Platforms Including CMT Pure, CMT Artists App, CMT.com and Social Media Sites TODAY
 
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (August 26, 2015) – There are countless music videos out there that are all about the artist. But like everything else they do, rising country duo LOCASH's new music video all is all about their fans. Exhibiting an action-packed lifestyle out on the road where its their championing supporters who make all of the 'chaos' worth it, the duo's dynamic new music video for "I Love This Life," makes its exclusive world premiere on CMT today, Wednesday, August 26. Tune in to CMT and all CMT platforms including CMT Mobile, CMT.com, and CMT Pure to see the video for the very first time, and visit CMT's social media sites for additional details on the heavily-promoted debut. Find your local channel listing here.

WATCH the video premiere online NOW HERE. Find out more about LOCASH and their CMT Artist page here.

The video, produced by Channel Greatness with direction by Stokes Nielson, is a montage of the duo's Chris Lucas and Preston Brust sporting a polished new wardrobe look in the stunning red rocks of Garden Of The Gods, Colorado, including documentary-style live concert footage at the Red, White and Boom Music Festival in Lexington, Kentucky and Grizzly Rose in Denver, Colorado. It tells the story of their life on the road, and the crowds of passionate fans responsible for getting them to where they are today. Nashville and NJ record label Reviver Records backs the national release.

Now a breakthrough Top 35 Billboard radio hit and rising, "I Love This Life," is LOCASH's highest charting single to-date. As songwriters, having celebrated a No. 1 in Keith Urban's "You Gonna Fly," and a buzz-worthy, genre-bending Top 10 hit, "Truck Yeah" by Tim McGraw, Lucas and Brust told The Boot in a recent interview that "I Love This Life" was "nearly another one of those songs that they gave away to a different artist."

"Scoring hit songs with other artists are 'moments that changed our lives," said Brust. "But there comes a moment where, I think, as an artist, you have to say, 'This is our shot.' We're on a brand-new record label and they’ve got a really great team, a really strong team… We have to think about keeping a couple songs for ourselves, especially if they fit and they're the right ones. And this happened to be one."

Brust added, "When Chris and I took it ["I Love This Life"] out on the road and 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 really got something here." As it turns out, the LOCASH guys were right.

LOCASH is currently out on the road across the nation on their I Love This Life Tour.

ERICA NICOLE IN CHART HISTORY BOOKS


TOP 20 THREE-PEAT PUTS ERICA NICOLE IN CHART HISTORY BOOKS

Dynamic Singer/Songwriter Sets Indie-Artist Record In Just 14 Months


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (August 25, 2015) -- Hailed by One Stop Country as "the greatest voice since Martina McBride," Erica Nicole has mobilized fans as well as critics to help her set a new chart record.  With the release of "I'm Making Mine," the title cut from her upcoming album, the dynamic young star-in-the-making becomes the first female on an independent label to release three consecutive Top 20 singles onto the MusicRow CountryBreakoutChart, following "I Listen To My Bad Girl" and "It's Comin' Down."

This achievement brings truth to a maxim that Erica Nicole came up with as a guide to her approach to both her life and career: "Don't just dream it. Believe it, live and make history."  Yet this Georgia native also humbly shares the credit for her success, not just with producer Kent Wells (Dolly, Reba), who helmed all three singles, but also with her entire crew.  "I feel so blessed to have the people behind me that I do," she says.  "Every day, our team gives it 110 percent.  That's something I'm very proud of."

Raised on the music of Patsy Cline, Willie Nelson, Reba McEntire and other country music legends, Erica Nicole moved to Nashville with a dream to follow in their footsteps.  She is already well on her way, having won Best Female Country Artist of the Year honors from NIMA (Nashville Music Industry Awards) in 2014.  At this year's NIMA event, scheduled for Aug. 29, she is nominated for Artist of the Year, Best Country Solo Artist Female, Best Live Country Performer and Song of the Year (for "I'm Making Mine").  In June she made her first appearance onstage at CMA Music Festival.  Her recent performances include headline dates in Georgia, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, New York, North Carolina, Wisconsin and elsewhere.  In September, she heads back to New York for more concert engagements.

ABOUT ERICA NICOLE
Inspired by classic country music icons George Strait, Dolly Parton and Patsy Cline, Erica Nicole channels the magnetism of a more unusual musical influence - Tina Turner - during her high-energy, no-holds-barred live shows.  She's opened for superstars Eric Church, Miranda Lambert and Brad Paisley, headlined her own shows and sung the National Anthem at Fenway Park (Boston Red Sox), CitiField (NY Mets) and various basketball arenas.  The 2014 winner of the Nashville Industry Music Awards for Best Female Country Artist of the Year is an avid animal lover and supporter of the charity Educated Canines Assisting With Disabilities (ECAD).  Her passions include college football, comfortable clothes and Hershey's Kisses.
 

THE WARDEN RELEASES DEBUT, SELF-TITLED SOLO ALBUM OCTOBER 9TH VIA IDOL RECORDS

THE WARDEN RELEASES DEBUT, SELF-TITLED SOLO ALBUM OCTOBER 9TH VIA IDOL RECORDS


"There is a gag order, so I can't tell you no more," sings The Warden on "Salvation," one of the twelve tracks on his debut solo album, set for release on October 9, 2015 via Dallas, Texas indie label, Idol Records.  "Salvation" is a story of touring the country in a struggling band, drinking way too much, and the glory of youth.  One of the many honest, intriguing stories of The Warden's adventurous life, documented on his debut record.

"[The song 'Salvation'] allows me to relive my 20s," says The Warden, at a ripe 37 years of age.  "I marvel about going on the road now, like I used to, when I was a teenager.  That being said, when I was actually on the road, sleeping in a van, in January in a Home Depot parking lot, in Ypsilanti, Michigan, it wasn't necessarily living up to my expectations.  'Salvation' is a nice slice of nostalgia mixed with a little bit of a warning message."

Now, you're probably asking yourself, "who is The Warden?"  He is East Dallas, Texas resident musician Ward Richmond, a fixture on the local scene who has toured internationally with projects such as Slick 57 and Boys Named Sue, among others, where he's held down the bass, songwriting, management duties, and sometimes vocals of these local music legends.  This time, though, he's picking up the guitar and making all of the decisions by himself.

While still an active member of Dallas' country outfit Boys Named Sue (voted "Best Country Band" in Dallas, Texas - 2005, 2006, 2007, 2010), he ended up writing a handful of songs on his own, inspired by the birth of his daughter, Betty Sue, and recorded them with just his acoustic guitar on his iPhone.  Eventually, he handed his tunes over to his longtime friend, and musical cohort, Robert Jason Vandygriff (from notable Dallas bands The Von Ehrics and RJV & Hell County Revival), and Jason talked him in to making a solo record.

"These songs are all pretty personal so I didn't really want to create an opportunity for three other dudes to modify songs that I was already perfectly content with," he says of his decision to make a solo record.  "Boys Named Sue is a very collaborative effort and these weren't the right tunes for that project."

After about a week and a half of recording, at the legendary Echo Lab in Argyle, Texas (where Old 97's, Centromatic, Polyphonic Spree, and Slobberbone have worked), magic happened.

"It turned out better than I expected," he says with joy.  "Jason had the vision and executed above all expectations."

Self-described as "East Dallas honky tonk," the record mixes foot-stompin' honky tonk and authentic, Texas-style storytelling with a slight dash of Southern punk rock, resulting in a countrified memoir looking back over the past fifteen years of The Warden's life, presenting tales of lifelong friendships, falling in and out of love, and the wild-ass adventure that happened along the way.

"It's pretty much lyric-driven," he comments.  "Our goal was to up the quality of the music in order to kick a little extra ass, and add some excitement to the lyrics.  Basically, it is a tonked up autobiography with a little fiction thrown in for good measure.  It's much easier for me to approach it this way, as a tonk album - and probably more entertaining for others - than attempting to write an actual book."

He didn't do it by himself, though, which is something he wants to point out.

In addition to Vandygriff producing the record, and Echo Lab's Dave Willingham behind the boards, he enlisted the help of a blistering honky tonk orchestra made up of his friends (not to mention, some of the best damned talent the State of Texas has to offer), including Chad Stockslager (The Drams, The King Bucks, Hard Nights Day), Bruce Alford (Jack Ingram, 1100 Springs, Stoney LaRue), Dan Phillips (True Widow, Slowride, Reverend Horton Heat), and Burton Lee (1100 Springs, Mike & The Moonpies).  He also convinced local stalwarts Madison King, Leslie McDonel (American Idiot), and John Pedigo (Slick 57, Boys Named Sue, The O's) to join him in the studio.

McDonel's gospel vocals make "County Line" come alive.  A love song about new beginnings, it's rollicking rhythm section melds perfectly with The Warden and McDonel's hard-charging vocals.  Meanwhile, the old Slick 57 punk tune, "Bullets," gets re-worked into a country duet, with The Warden and Madison King's voices melding into a warm, though still ragged, hungover, regretful number.

The album isn't all honky tonk, though.  The Southern rock of "Little Darlin'" and the piano-filled, hometown anthem "Livin' In The EDT," gives you a taste of rock from the eyes of the South.

One thing is for sure; after listening to The Warden, you will want to live vicariously through the album again and give it another spin.  Sit down and have a beer with The Warden and you'll likely hear tales about opening for Waylon Jennings, sneaking onto Willie Nelson's tour bus, and joining Billy Joe Shaver onstage to sing "Honky Tonk Heroes."

A true Texan, proudly born and raised in East Dallas (The EDT), this debut album is a testament to the fact that The Warden works hard each day at the art of livin' life properly.

Famed tattoo artist, and friend, Oliver Peck even designed the logo for the cover art.  Originally, this album was not self-titled; yet, after seeing Peck's logo design for him, The Warden decided to just make the record self-titled.

"Oliver came up with a sweet logo, and I felt like it was good looking enough to ditch the album title," laughs The Warden.

As he sings in "High Life," "Miller High Life is the cure for when we are not sure of if we'll get some money in the bank," this record is the cure for anyone that doesn't feel like they're living life to the fullest.  Put this on, get inspired, or just laugh and drink, and experience The Warden.

Remember, he's just an East Dallas boy that woke up one day and wrote a handful of songs to put a smile on your sweet mouth.

Nashville, Tenn. (August 25, 2015) - He's been called a "master performer without an expiration date" by Rolling Stone, "a cultural treasure" by the Los Angeles Times and "undeniably the most important figure in bluegrass music today" by the Chicago Tribune, and at 88 years old, the oldest living member of the Grand Ole Opry, Dr. Ralph Stanley, shows no signs of slowing down.
