The Lacs Release New Single “Hellraisers In Heaven”
and Music Video – Out Now!
New single in collaboration with Murphy Elmore – Listen Here
(Nashville, TN – February 10, 2023) Billboard-charting country duo and recently RIAA Gold-certified for their single “Dirt Road Dollars” The Lacs have announced their new single in collaboration with Alabama-native singer and songwriter, Murphy Elmore, titled “Hellraisers in Heaven.” Produced by Stephen Van Etten and written by Murphy Elmore, rapper of the duo Clay Sharpe, singer and guitarist of the duo Brian King, Samuel Grayson, Cody Webb, and Brian Davis, “Hellraisers in Heaven” is now available for download here and the music video can be watched here.
Sharpe explained the meaning behind the track, saying, “This song is about that time in your life when you’re just having a good time, but maybe causing a bit of trouble, too. It’s about being rebellious, but not meaning any harm. It’s honest and genuine to our style as artists. I think it’s one where many people will find their own meaning, and personally, it’s one of our best songs yet.”
The lyrics reflect the group’s defiant actions but also show them asking for forgiveness for the said actions: “we didn’t always keep it straight / sometimes we’d bail out of line / standing out at heaven’s gate / I hope they let me inside.”
King spoke of the choice to have Elmore featured on the track, saying, “Sitting down and talking with Murphy, that told us all we needed to know. He is a cool guy and a very talented songwriter and artist.”
Elmore, who alongside King and Sharpe helped co-write the track, added, “My inspiration for the title and lyrics came from my feelings I get from my hometown. I was thinking about how Saturday nights were always the wildest but hardest because most of us only got a few hours of sleep due to church the following Sunday morning. The Lacs brought a really cool, unexpected element to the song, and it fits comfortably into the original fibers of the idea.”
When it comes to the country-rap-rock genre, The Lacs are no stranger to remaining at the top. With over 1 billion streams on Pandora, 535 million YouTube views, and over 400 million streams on Spotify, the duo has built quite the fan base over the years. Rapper of the duo Clay Sharpe and singer/guitarist Brian King made their mark in the music world in 2012 when their album 190 Proof became their first album to break into the album charts. In 2015, their album Outlaw In Me climbed to No. 3 on both the country and rap album charts. They received their first RIAA Gold certification from their 2010 single “Kickin’ Up Mud” and recently their second for “Dirt Road Dollars.”
In 2017, Sharpe and King made their own independent record label, Dirt Rock Empire, and released their first album with the label, Dirt Rock. It landed in the Top 25 of the Billboard Country Albums Chart. Since then, they have recently been putting the finishing touches on their upcoming album which is set to release in 2023.
The duo recently announced their upcoming “Hellraisers in Heaven” tour set to kick off on February 9, 2023. Opening acts include Elmore and singer and songwriter Dustin Spears. Show dates, tour information, and tickets can be found here.
