BBR Music Group/BMG has announced the signing of country duo LOCASH as the latest addition to its roster of artists. LOCASH’s Preston Brust and Chris Lucas have been assigned to the Wheelhouse Records imprint, where they will join labelmates Trace Adkins, Granger Smith, Runaway June and Walker McGuire.

LOCASH has earned Gold-certified tracks like “I Love This Life” and their No. 1 chart-topper, “I Know Somebody,” which earned them nominations for ACM Awards for New Vocal Duo or Group of the Year, CMT Music Awards for Duo Video of the Year, and CMA Awards for Vocal Duo of the Year. In addition to their own radio success, Brust and Lucas have penned hits for country artists including Keith Urban (the No. 1 song “You Gonna Fly”) and Tim McGraw (the Platinum-certified “Truck Yeah”).

“LOCASH has accomplished so much on their own, people in the industry have really embraced them,” said Jon Loba EVP, BBR Music Group. “Their entrepreneurial spirit mimics our own and we are so excited to work with them and look forward to watching them soar.”

“We’ve known Loba for years and had our sights on BBR since before we signed our first deal but knew we had to get the timing right, now it just feels like all of the stars have finally aligned and this is where we’re supposed to be,” said Brust. “It is a bit of a ‘pinch me’ moment, we’re such big fans of everybody on the roster and are honored to be named alongside such incredible artists.”

“They have put together an incredible team at BBR and with the full support of BMG behind them, there’s no better team to help take our career to the next level,” said Lucas. “Talking with Zach Katz, who has made such an incredible impact on the music business and everybody on the BBR team, we could just immediately tell our music was going to be in the right hands and as a songwriter and artist, there is no better feeling.”
