Country rap duo The Lacs took the stage at the Tally Ho Theatre in Leesburg, Virginia on February 6th, and to say they were amazing would be an understatement.
Although their music screams rough and rowdy, their stage presence is very mellow. They are authentic in every aspect and nothing they do is forced. They took the stage and the room immediately lit up. The boys opened up with “Field Party,” which features JJ Lawhorn, and it was the obvious choice. After all, it’s a fan favorite. Another big hit was “Smoke Stack.” Their fans are some of the realest and most genuine people you could ever find. The crowd knew every song and sang loudly. In true southern style the boys shared a shot on stage and followed that with passing around a few beers to the crowd.
One of the highlights of the show was when they shared their new single titled “God Bless a Country Girl.” Everything they speak about in their music is true life for them. You can tell they live what they write. That’s a special quality to have and not everyone is capable of that. It makes them unique in that aspect.
Once the crowd was comfortable, the boys shared some fireball shots as well as some tshirts. The last half of their set was flawless. I enjoyed the Garth Brooks cover of “Friends In Low Places” which they inevitably made their own.
Then, it happened… they totally won me over by performing my favorite song. “Keep It Redneck” is also a fan favorite and it not only describes Clay & Brian, but also their fans.
They ended their set with “Kickin Up Mud” which was the perfect choice. If you are a simple, blue collar redneck…then The Lacs are worth checking out. Hell, even if you aren’t, you are bound to have a good time at their show. They certainly did not disappoint.
