Tucson, Ariz. (January 9, 2019) – LOCASH, the popular country-music duo, will perform a military appreciation concert on the practice range of Omni Tucson National Resort following second-round golf action of the PGA TOUR Champions’ Cologuard Classic on Saturday, March 2, 2019. The Tucson Conquistadores, hosts of the Cologuard Classic, Exact Sciences, iHeart Media (97.1 FM - The Bull), Cumulus Radio (99.5 FM - KIIM) and O’Rielly Chevrolet have teamed-up for this exciting concert under the stars. General admission tickets, which include golf tournament and concert admission on Saturday, March 2, are $35 per person and are now on sale at www.cologuardclassic.com.
Creating a sound that fuses modern Country and classic heartland rock with an edgy vocal blend, Wheelhouse Records’ LOCASH is the Country music duo made up of singer-songwriters Chris Lucas and Preston Brust; natives of Baltimore, Maryland, and Indianapolis, Indiana, respectively. With two albums and eight charting singles to their credit, LOCASH broke out in 2015 with their gracious GOLD-certified hit, “I Love This Life," followed by the flirtatious GOLD-certified No. 1 smash, “I Know Somebody”– their first trip to the top of the Country radio airplay charts – and 2017’s fun-loving romantic anthem “Ring on Every Finger.” All three singles were part of their album, THE FIGHTERS, which was released in the summer of 2016 to Top 15 success. In 2017, they earned their first round of awards show recognition, nominated at the ACM Awards for New Vocal Duo or Group of the Year, the CMT Music Awards for Duo Video of the Year (“I Know Somebody”), and the CMA Awards for Vocal Duo of the Year. Their latest single “Feels Like A Party,” is the pair’s first release with their new label, BBR Music Group/BMG.
Concert sponsorship packages are also available and offer a wide range of food and beverage options, VIP seating, enhanced viewing areas and other additional benefits at both the golf tournament and concert. Proceeds from the concert will benefit DM50, a Tucson-based non-profit dedicated to educating the community on the vital role Davis-Monthan Air Force Base has within the region, and local youth through amateur athletic programs.
