Locash to Perform at National Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony in Washington DC on Nov. 28

The National Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony at the National Mall in Washington, D.C., on Nov. 28 will include some country twang from Chris Lucas and Preston Brust of Locash.

The duo revealed they will perform three songs during the ceremony, which typically involves performers from many musical genres. Last year’s Tree Lighting ceremony featured the Beach Boys, Wynonna, Mannheim Steamroller and more.

“We got a call from the White House to perform at the Christmas Tree Lighting this year,” says Chris to NCD. “Isn’t that incredible? We’re going to bring some of our positivity to D.C. with Christmas songs.”

“We get to perform three songs,” added Preston. “We just told them we wanted to be upbeat, perform songs like ‘Santa Clause Is Coming to Town’ or ‘Jingle Bells.’ There are gonna be a lot of kids in the crowd and we just want to pump them up and be positive.”

This year marks the 96th annual National Christmas Tree Lighting, first celebrated in 1923 by President Calvin Coolidge.

Thomas Rhett takes 2020 Lessons Learned Into 2021

Thomas Rhett takes 2020 Lessons Learned Into 2021

2020 was a year that taught us all a lot. Thomas Rhett reflects on the year we just left behind, and what he will take with him into this new year, “You know, 2020 has definitely been hard in many ways, especially for a lot of different families who have either lost work or people that have been on the front lines working in hospitals, or teachers trying to teach three year olds how to learn their letters and their numbers. But for us, I think 2020 has had several silver linings, and for me, I think I was going at such a rapid pace that 2020 definitely forced me to slow down. And so I hope I can take that mindset back into 2021.”
