Free Concert For Infield Guests On Saturday Night Of Race Week
The roar of the engines from the Aaron’s 312 NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Talladega Superspeedway on April 25 will be followed that evening by the roar of a free concert in the track’s infield, brought to you by the Bama Jam Music and Arts Festival, a Ronnie Gilley Entertainment Production.
The country/rock duo LoCash Cowboys will headline the free event, which will be open to both Saturday and Sunday infield guests, including all infield campers.
Sunday infield admission tickets will be sold in advance, for the first time ever, beginning Saturday, April 4. Those fans will be allowed access to the infield Saturday night in order to attend the concert.
Stroudavarious Recording artists and the Host for the 2009 Bama Jam Music and Arts Festival located in Enterprise, AL (www.bamajammusicfestival.com) Preston Brust and Chris Lucas are the LoCash Cowboys. The two musicians met in Nashville in 2002 and began performing as Chris & Preston. They renamed themselves LoCash Cowboys in late 2004 and started touring in 2005.
Among the duo’s top songs are “My Life in Tuckerville” – the theme to Tanya Tucker’s County Music Television show “Tuckerville” – and the hit single “Parade,” which they sang in New York’s Times Square this past New Year’s Eve in a performance that was broadcast live on Fox News Network.
The duo’s music is a cross between traditional country and up-tempo rock sounds. The LoCash Cowboys Web site (www.locashcowboys.com) states that their songs “push the boundaries of traditional country music, blending old sounds with new, mixing and juggling genres, and removing the restrictions of what is considered customary in country.”
The duo has become known for putting on high-energy live shows. Brust says he and Lucas are “like stage Marines. We walk out, take one look at the audience and attack. We never let up, whether it’s a 30-minute appearance or a four-hour show. The energy stays at a peak the entire time.”
The opening act for LoCash Cowboys will be the winner of the BamaJam Battle of the Bands, to be held April 17-18 in Enterprise, Ala. Nearly three dozen bands are scheduled to compete in the two-day event at the Bama Slam Saloon. For more information visit www.bamajammusicfestival.com/battleofthebandsalign="right">
