@Stampede Houston

Friday 1/31/2020 9:00 PM

When this duo started out in the country music business they wanted to be known as LoCash Cowboys. The duo singers/songwriters Chris Lucas and Preston Brust would eventually drop the cowboys from their name. The two make their way to the Bayou City this weekend, January 31, 2020 at Stampede Houston.

It was their hits with Tim McGraw "Truck Yeah" and Keith Urban's "You Gonna Fly" that put the two on the map as pop country music writers. It was their hit singles "I Love This Life" and "I Know Somebody" that moved their celebrity to the country music charts. The single "Feels Like a Party" from last year got their fans lined-up to their concert venues.
