With thousands of people expected in town to see the American top Country duo, LOCASH, Friday After 5 has created a special venue for the free concert on July 21st.
“We will be setting up on the front lawn of the Owensboro Convention Center so that we have plenty of room for our guests,” announced Friday After 5’s Executive Director Teresa Thomas.
“It is rare for a national act with the following of LOCASH to headline a free community concert,” explained Thomas. “The number of fans will exceed what our regular venues can accommodate and thanks to the generosity of our sponsor, Champion Ford, we are anticipating a record crowd.”
“The Owensboro Convention Center and city’s Special Events department have helped us with all of the logistics including setting up for the huge concert for the first time in its history on its front lawn,” said Thomas.
“LOCASH’s hit single “I Love This Life” topped the Country Billboard Chart at # 2 and their slate of hits include contemporary classics like “Here Comes Summer”, “Best Seat in the House” and “Keep in Mind” so we’re expecting a huge crowd and a great night,” said sponsor Duke Brubaker of Champion Ford. “We’ve also made arrangements to have some of Champion Ford’s newest cars and trucks onsite.”
Concessions will be available for purchase throughout the night. No outside food or beverages are allowed. Guests are allowed to bring their own lawn chairs if they wish and the concert on the lawn is standing room only.
All other Friday After 5 events will continue as scheduled including adding “Insulated” (Country Rock) to the Jagoe Stage on the BB&T Plaza at the RiverPark Center.
Vocalists Chris Lucas and Preston Brust of LOCASH, formerly known as LoCash Cowboys, have charted seven singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs or Country Airplay chart. Their highest-charting single is “I Know Somebody“, which topped the Billboard US Country Airplay and reached number four in the Billboard US Country chart in 2016. In addition to their own material, the members of LOCASH co-wrote Keith Urban‘s number-one single “You Gonna Fly” and Tim McGraw‘s “Truck Yeah“.
