CD reviews for LoCash
While some wondered whether bro country's long and very successful run (a sub-genre that traditionalists have long resented) was about to end, a quick spin of the leadoff track on Locash's "Brothers" will tell you that the formula is still alive and well.

Locash is no stranger to the country charts, albeit in a behind the scenes role. Chris Lucas and Preston Burst co-wrote Keith Urban's number one 1 "You Gonna Fly" and Tim McGraw's Top 10 "Truck Yeah."
Many hit singles feel like they were written inorganically in a cubicle and presented to a focus group. The duo's own Top 5 hit, "I Love This Life" is no exception. Its bouncy intro and standard issue country clichés like trucks, camo hats and »»»

Frank Turner opined during the first of four sold-out nights of the Lost Evenings Festival that Boston was his home away from his British home. The likable, accessible singer hit the sweet spot not only with his perspective, but his performance as well demonstrated why.
Turner made a major change in this year's festival. For the first time, he... »»»
