CMT Music Award-Nominated Duo Follows Up No. 1 Hit with “Beers to Catch Up On”
NASHVILLE, TN. / LONDON, UK. – (October 15th, 2020) – Chart-topping Country duo, LOCASH have shared “Cloud of Dust (feat. The Gronkowski Brothers).” Striking up a friendship while quarantined, LOCASH and the football-loving Gronkowski brothers wrote the song while hanging out at Chris Lucas’ (of LOCASH) house. In conjunction with the song’s release, The Gronks shared a video on their YouTube Channel last night which shows how the song was written and gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the recording of the song. Check it out HERE. The track itself is now available everywhere digitally HERE.
Kicking off with a banjo and a “chug!” chant, the song launches into a head banger complete with 80s electric guitar. The song offers a big more edge than we’re used to from LOCASH, who are experts at crafting party anthems, with this one taking the good times to a whole new level. Infusing landmarks from the town where Chris, Dan, Glenn, Gordie and Rob Gronkowski grew up, the song reflects the fun-loving brothers affinity for a good time and reputation for partying hard.
“I’m not sure there is a group of brothers that know how to throw down more than The Gronk Brothers—they were the perfect pick to help us finish this song,” said Preston Brust (of LOCASH). “Not only did they add their infectiously, energetic golden Gronk touch to the lyrics but they also rocked some vocals on the track and made the song feel and sound like a big anthem!”
“We’ve been getting to know Rob outside of the spotlight and the touchdowns and he is an awesome guy—meeting his brothers and getting to work with them was such a fun, creative experience,” said Chris Lucas (of LOCASH). “It was also such a natural fit to collaborate with them, because our last album is called Brothers and it’s all about coming together and that brotherly bond.”
Hot off their No.1 smash “One Big Country Song,” which earned the pair a nomination for CMT Music Awards “Duo Video of the Year,” LOCASH appeared on the Coffee, Country & Cody show Tuesday morning to talk about their latest single “Beers to Catch Up On” as well as their WSM at 95 special, which aired yesterday (14/10) on WSM radio.
“Cloud of Dust” was written by: Preston Brust, Chris Lucas, Dallas Davidson, Blake Bollinger and The Gronkowski Brothers.
LOCASH will appear at next week’s Country Music Week Digital event, as part of the BBR & BMG Showcase, also featuring The Shires, Granger Smith, Elvie Shane and Track 45 at 8pm BST on Saturday 24th Oct.
