LOCASH’s massive hit “One Big Country Song” made its way to the top of the Mediabase country airplay chart this week, securing the duo’s second No.1 single.
The unifying song celebrates everything people have in common, rather than pointing out their differences, and in times like these, everyone could use a song like this.
“Turn it up and sing along/ We all work ’til the daylight’s gone/ We all knock off the edge around five/ Fall in love from a kiss on Friday night,” they sing on the chorus. “And we’ve all had a broken heart/ We’ve all closed down a few good bars/ Take a look around, y’all, tell me I’m wrong/ Ain’t the whole wide world just one big country song?”
The summer smash was co-written by Jesse Frasure, Ashley Gorley and Michael Hardy and produced by Corey Crowder and Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard.
The success of the song means everything to Preston Brust and Chris Lucas of LOCASH, especially this year.
“Thank.You.Country.Radio!!!!” exclaimed Brust. “The folks at Country radio feel like ‘One Big Country Family’ to us and we just want to thank them for showing us so much love over the years and especially this week!”
“We didn’t think anyone worked harder than us…until we met the BBR Music Group/ Wheelhouse Records team but they jumped from No. 6 to No. 1 in a week and brought home a No. 1 record!” added Lucas. “We’re all living in crazy times so it feels really good to be part of a silver lining story and a song that brought a smile to so many people’s faces.”
“One Big Country Song” is the first single off the duo’s latest album, Brothers.
