The Lacs Share New Single, ‘Out Here’ [Exclusive Premiere]
The Lacs are getting ready to release a new album, and they're letting Taste of Country readers hear one of the new songs early.
The country rap duo consisting of Clay Sharpe and Brian King will release their fifth album for Average Joes Entertainment, Outlaw in Me, on Tuesday (May 26). According to a press release, the project "gives fans an inside look into the duo’s day-to-day life — from playing at the mud bogs, clubs and festivals to life on the bus, enjoying family, and living the good life."
The duo's previous album, Keep It Redneck, expanded their already very passionate fanbase exponentially. The Lacs have sold half a million albums and 1.5 million downloads, and have earned millions of video and audio streams with their unique blend of country, southern rock, rap and spoken word. Outlaw in Me builds upon that base with a variety of styles, including the acoustic sounds of “God Bless a Country Girl,” the autobiographical “Going Back to Georgia" — which features Craig Campbell — and the club-friendly “Make the Rooster Crow."
“People still can’t figure out what to call the music we do,” says King. “We just get in there and write about what we want.”
"Out Here" is a very personal song that reflects the duo's roots.
"This one's more of the rough gritty side of country music," Sharpe says. "We went back to our roots on this song. Gave it that let your country hang out type feel that our fans really like."
Outlaw in Me is currently available for pre-order at iTunes.
