The LACS perform at The Showtime Saloon in Fletcher on Oct. 25

Country music The LACS (Brian King and Clay Sharpe) have been making a name for themselves with songs like “Shake It” and performing the opening theme for reality show, “Mud Lovin’ Rednecks.” They” perform at The Showtime Saloon (97 Underwood Rd., Fletcher) on Friday, Oct. 25 at 8 p.m.

From a press release:

“The LACS first received national attention with their Top 15 Billboard Country Album, ‘190 Proof,’ released in 2012 and has remained on the chart for over 70 consecutive weeks. The album featured Colt Ford, Bubba Sparxxx and the song, ‘Shake It,’ with Big & Rich. Their debut album, ‘Country Boy’s Paradise,’ has sold nearly 90,000 units to date. Since then, the duo, comprised of Brian King and Clay Sharpe, has sold over 400,000 digital tracks, collectively earned more than 16 million YouTube views and were most recently featured in the Wall Street Journal.

“[The band continues] to challenge the status quo on their new album, ‘Keep It Redneck.’ The music features the duo’s trademark in-your-face musical magic as well as a few new fresh variations. ‘Our music is not one dimensional,’ Clay Sharpe of The LACS says. ‘We take the good out of rock, the good out of country and the good out of rap and mix them together and create something different. We build from scratch.’ Brian King says, ‘That’s what our fans want and that’s exactly what we’re giving them.’”
