Hit country duo, The LACS, has been leading the charge in the new country hip-hop movement that has become increasingly more popular as highlighted recently in such major dailies as the Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, The Tampa Tribune and The Tennessean. The LACS new album, Keep It Redneck, was released on August 20. The new album was produced by Shannon “Fat Shan” Houchins and Phivestarr Productions for BackRoad Records and is sure to please the duo’s backwoods poetry fan base with another album full of new original hits.
The LACS consist of hip-hop artist Clay “Uncle Snap” Sharpe and lead vocalist/guitarist Brian “Rooster” King, both of Baxley. With a blue-collar background the duo worked shutdowns with the union and framed many a house to earn enough money keep their music dreams alive. They were recently recognized in the Arena-section of the Wall Street Journal with a cover story celebrating their unique ability to connect with fans with their one-off, genre-merging style of music.
Clay and Brian and their fusion of country music and hip-hop has delivered them a dedicated fan base that has helped the duo sell over 200,000 albums to date. This same talent has also positioned them on Billboard’s Country Albums chart for an incredible 70 consecutive weeks for the previous album.
“People see stuff that is already there and ask why; I dream stuff that never was and ask why not”. This saying describes the LACS; they saw what was already there, had big dreams to be there, and asked the music industry why not?
