Posted: 07 Oct 2015 04:59 PM PDT

Oak Ridge Boys fans will have another reason to celebrate the season this year. The award winning group will once again celebrate the Christmas season with timeless hits and holiday classics. The 26th Annual "Christmas Night Out" tour will take the band to two dozen plus cities throughout 19 states, spanning from the East to West Coast.

The almost two hour holiday show will transport concertgoers into a Winter Wonderland with Christmas tunes old and new, including religious, romantic and fun holiday tunes, many of which come from the band's six best-selling Christmas CDs. Fans can even expect a special visit from Santa Claus himself!

There is nothing quite like an Oak Ridge Boys Christmas Show. This tour has become an Oak Ridge Boys tradition and is a tremendous experience for the entire family. With a revamped stage and a fresh approach, this year's show will be a dynamic mix of music representing every aspect of Christmas from presents and snow, to romance and Santa Claus, on to the real meaning of the season celebrating the birth of Jesus," said The Oak Ridge Boys' Joe Bonsall.

Each year The Oak Ridge Boys' Christmas tour packs venues across America. The 2015 “Christmas Night Out Tour” will begin in mid-November and go all the way through December 23rd.

Folks can expect to hear old favorites like 'White Christmas' and 'Jingle Bells' mixed with some very poignant newer songs like 'Getting Ready for A Baby' and 'Mary Did You Know.' A highlight of the evening is the much-loved 'rocking chair' segment where each BOY rocks by the fireplace and shares personal thoughts about Christmas. So we hope you'll come out and see us… and Merry Christmas!" Bonsall added.

LOCASH Announces Release Of Their New EP: “I Love This Life”

Posted: 07 Oct 2015 12:33 PM PDT

It comes as no surprise that the rising duo LOCASH has wowed critics and crowds throughout the country on their "I Love This Life Tour", and quickly climbing the radio charts with the highest charting single of their career, "I Love This Life," lands the #23 spot on the Country Billboard radio charts this week and surpassing 100,000 downloads.

Village Voice calls them "seasoned songwriters in detailing the carefree Southern lifestyle," and Entrepreneur Magazine writes, "They bring to the stage an amazing and sincere energy unlike anything [we’ve] ever seen at a concert before."

Now, on the heels of all their success this year, the country duo has announced the release of their new six-track E.P., "I Love This Life."  On Friday, October 30th, fans will be able to download the E.P. which features the hit radio single, as well as additional fan-favorites like “Shipwrecked” and “I Know Somebody.”

The "I Love This Life" E.P. will be released on Reviver Records and was produced with the help of Lindsay Rimes and David Ross. It will be available at the end of the month as a digital download nationwide on iTunes, Amazon and other online retailers.

I cannot wait for the current and future LOCASH fans to hear what we have been working so hard on. It’s a new and established sound for us. Something fresh, with the LOCASH flavor and the roots of country music,” said the duo’s Chris Lucas.

Preston Brust added, “This new project captures real feelings mixed with melodies we hope everyone can relate and sing along to. We are in a really great place in life and I think these songs are windows into our lives right now. I couldn’t be more excited or more proud of it!”

I Love This Life

The track listing for I Love This Life includes:
1.) "I Love This Life" (P. Brust, C. Janson, C. Lucas, D. Myrick)
2.) "I Know Somebody" (R. Copperman, J. Stover, R. Akins)
3.) "Shipwrecked" (P. Brust, M. Tyler, L. Rimes)
4.) "Aint Startin Tonight" (P. Brust, J. Boyer, M. Tyler)
5.) "Drunk Drunk" (P. Brust, C. Lucas, B. Niemi, S. Stokes)
6.) "Till The Wheels Fall Off" (P. Brust, J. Boyer, M. Bronleewe)

Five of the six songs on the new E.P. were written by Brust, Lucas or both. The stand-out track, “Shipwrecked,” is the song which influenced the name of their signature wine line developed in partnership with Stonum Vineyards… particularly presents a new musical dimension to LOCASH. Who doesn't love wine and good music?!?

I had been listening to a lot of John Legend at the time, so I wanted a song that sounded like John Legend, with some guitar in it, but I wanted the lyrics to be really honest,” the duo’s Preston Brust told The Boot. “A lot of people, when they’re interviewing us, they’ll ask a fun question and it’s always the same: ‘If you’re shipwrecked on an island, what’s the one thing you have to have?’ And so, I sat down at the piano, and I said [to myself] ‘You know what, here’s what I’ve got to have.’ You’ve got to hear the song to find out, but it’s really cool. It’s a really cool song,” he added.

LOCASH also recently premiered the new music video for "I Love This Life" on all CMT platforms including CMT Pure, CMT Artists App, and social media sites on August 26th. The video is a montage of the duo in the stunning red rocks of Garden Of The Gods, Colorado, pieced with documentary-style footage of life on the road with their fans.
