LoCash Cowboys to Perform in Olympic Halftime Show

Posted by on 07/25/2008

What do basketball, Country Music and the Olympics have in common? Answer: LoCash Cowboys.

The men that make up LoCash Cowboys, Maryland native Chris Lucas and Arkansas native Preston, will be the halftime entertainment when the United States plays Canada in the only Olympic exhibition game in the US. The tournament will be broadcast on ESPN, the NBA channel, and be beamed live across the world from Las Vegas' sold out Thomas and Mack Arena.

"I'm ecstatic that LoCash is going to do the half-time show for us," said MaryAnn Beaman, director of events programming for Las Vegas Events. "We were looking for high-energy entertainment and these guys fit the bill."

LoCash, who has a sound reminiscent of Big and Rich in their song "Boom-Boom", will be accompanied by cowgirl dancers in, what else, Wrangler jeans. The teams are set for the international tip-off July 25 at 8pm.
