Since 2000, Brian “Rooster” King and Clay “Uncle Snap” Sharpe of The Lacs have been blending the sounds of country, Southern rock and rap across multiple albums, two of which reached the Top 5 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart. But what the Georgia boys love more than rapping about their laid-back lifestyle is collaborating with other artists. Over the course of their 17-year career, The Lacs have featured a number of other artists on their singles, including Colt Ford (“Shindig”), Bubba Sparxxx (“Wylin’”), Josh Thompson (“Tonight on Repeat”) and Craig Campbell (“Back to Georgia”).
On their new album, American Rebelution, Brian and Clay continued their collaborative customs by teaming up with former CMA Vocal Duo of the Year Montgomery Gentry on the single, “Jack in My Coke.” The dynamic duos also joined forces on the tune’s new spirited video, which was filmed in Nashville.
“We’ve always been big fans of Montgomery Gentry,” says Brian. “We felt like ‘Jack in My Coke’ was the perfect song, so with our record label, we reached out to them, and luckily they loved the idea.”
“We can only describe working with Eddie [Montgomery] and Troy [Gentry] as a dream come true,” says Clay. “These guys are legends, and we had a blast on the set of ‘Jack in My Coke.’”
“We had so much fun with The Lacs cutting ‘Jack in My Coke’ and on the set for the video,” says Montgomery Gentry’s Eddie. “We are always up for trying something new, so when they asked, of course we said yes,” added Troy.
