LoCash’s Preston Brust Really Does ‘Love This Life’ With New Baby
Chris Lucas and Preston Brust — known together as LoCash — got their first No. 1 hit in “I Love This Life,” and now Brust is loving life even more. The duo stopped by the Taste of Country Nights studio where the singer opened up about his new baby, Love.
Billy Currington, Eli Young Band, Granger Smith and LoCash will take the stage for the 2016 WYRK Toyota Taste of Country, on sale now.
Brust welcomed a beautiful baby girl on Jan. 5 with his wife Kristen in Nashville, Tenn. The singer couldn’t say enough about how great being a new father is, even if it’s all sorta unknown.
“It feels great man. I tell you what, every day is an adventure,” he gushes. “It’s a journey. First time parents, man, we’re just kinda winging it. Everybody’s got all this advice and you use all the advice, you take it to heart, but some of it you just kinda learn as you go.”
With a No. 1 single on the charts at the time of her birth, baby Love Lily’s name just fell into place. “Like a little flower,” Brust says, adding that’s also how he felt when he first saw her.
“It’s just love at first sight, I tell you what. That’s the easiest way to put it for me. I just fell in love with her, head over heels.”
They didn’t name the baby after the song per se, but Brust says it does kind of all go together.
“It’s very coincidental that it all goes together like that. It’s pretty cool because she was born the week we actually pushed to the top of the charts. It’s a little bit of a push week in all kinds of ways,” he says about the birth and song.
Now the duo are riding high on another song, “I Know Somebody,” which is already getting a good response from fans and industry execs alike. Fans can now download the song on iTunes. It appears on LoCash’s I Love This Life EP.
