I have been fortunate to meet many country singers in my career. Most of those were as brief as snapping a picture or just saying hello at a meet and greet. If the artist is known for supporting St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, I sincerely thank them for that support and encourage them to do more. Several artists through the years have tried to go above and beyond the simple meet and greet. Many have taken the time to try and get to know the radio personalities who are playing their music on the radio. Garth Brooks in 1995 was super nice and spent a surprising amount of time with me and my coworkers from the radio station. Aaron Tippin, Toby Keith, Diamond Rio and Patty Loveless are just a few of the other 90's artists that wanted to sit down and actually talk. In more recent years Chase Bryant, Dierks Bentley and a few others have tried to get close and personal with their fans and radio folk. Most have not. Most have been that whole take the picture and move on kind of situations. I am not critical of that at all. I understand they are going from town to town doing shows several nights a week. It has to get old right? But honestly in recent years none have been as kind and accommodating than Locash! On Sunday night I had the opportunity to again 'hang' with Chris and Preston of Locash. In fact, after meeting them 15 months ago at our Hill City Jam, I was surprised to get a phone call from their manager on Sunday about 8 hours before the show saying "Hey Scott, Chris and Preston are here at Phase 2 and want you to come hang on the bus." Really? They actually remember meeting me? I wondered as I was rushing to get out my door how many other radio personalities they must have met in the last 15 months since I saw them. Hundreds I am sure. Considering they did over 250 shows last year alone, and were up to 151 so far this year as of the Phase 2 show. In spite of all those shows, and all those people they remembered a radio guy from Lynchburg, Virginia. Yep... these guys are real. They are performers and great at their trade, but their hospitality is not a performance. It is just who they are. I hope their success continues and grows. My duo of the year award goes to Locash! Below is the facebook live video from their bus in case you missed it.
