  • Here, LoCash's Preston Brust and Chris Lucas highlight the things we have in common, no matter how different we seem on the surface.

    And we've all had a broken heart
    We've all closed down a few good bars
    Take a look around, y'all, tell me I'm wrong
    Ain't the whole wide world just one big country song


    Lucas told ABC Audio one reason he loves country music so much is the unity you'll always find within the industry. He explained that while there's some rivalry between them and other duos such as Brothers Osborne or Florida Georgia Line, "there's a connect."

    Lucas added that when times get tough, the competition gets forgotten. "If something happens to any of us, country music comes together," he reflected. "And you see the family. There's nothing more important than the family in country music. And that's why I love this. I love country music because of that."
  • Jesse Frasure, Ashley Gorley and Hardy wrote the feel-good party anthem. Tyler Hubbard from one of LoCash's "rival" duos, Florida Georgia Line, co-produced the track with Corey Crowder.
  • K McKamy directed the song's visual, which sees a diverse collection of people come together. "Our goal for the video was to somewhat extend the sing-along moment that this song creates in our live show and capture the feeling of bringing people from every walk of life together to enjoy a moment," said Preston Brust.
  • When this climbed to the top of the Mediabase country chart, it gave Ashley Gorley his 50th career #1 song on the Billboard and Mediabase charts. His first was back in 2006, when Carrie Underwood's "Don't Forget to Remember Me" reached the summit.
