Hawk listeners have the best ears for good new music.  I remember a few years back when LoCash Cowboys were scheduled to play Hunter Mountain for the Taste of Country Music Festival and a number of fans telling me how they follow them around from concert to concert and how great there music is.  That was then, this is now.

There have been many turning points in the career of LoCash Cowboys, now just called LoCash.  The first one had to be a phone call the guys received from Keith Urban. The duo's Chris Lucas remembers: "That changed our life.  In 2011, Keith called to say he was going to record one of our songs, 'You Gonna Fly,' and release it as a single. At the time I was living in an apartment and I couldn't make the monthly payment.  We had just lost our record deal. Then Keith called to say a song we wrote was going to be his next single.  I held my little boy over my head like Simba in The Lion King.  That was our first step to where we're at now."

LoCash makes their co-hosting debut this Sunday (October 2) on 'Country Countdown USA,' Sunday night 7-10 p.m. on 98.1 The Hawk.  The duo will talk about their early struggles, how Tim McGraw recorded a song they wrote with Chris Janson called 'Truck Yeah' and how they put together songs for their current album.

The year began with the duo having their first Top 5 with "I Love This Life."  Shortly after that, each of the guys, Chris and Preston, welcomed baby girls into their families. "It's been a big year, it's been absolutely crazy."

LoCash also has great stories this week about Chris Young, Dierks Bentley, and Florida Georgia Line.
