I don’t have a lot of positive things to say about music we describe as ‘country/rap’. For that reason, I generally don’t write about it. But when I hear an album that reminds me so much of Colt Ford, I have to share the news with you. I think the reason I am a Colt Ford fan is more because of who he is than what he sings. I love his shows. I love the way he entertains his fans, and I just think he’s a pretty awesome dude. That brings us to The Lacs. The will release their new album, “Nothing In Particular” tomorrow.
I received a press release about the album, and will share that with you below. But, I also listened to this CD, and I want to share just a few of my thoughts about it with all of you. While I won’t say I have a ‘favorite’ song on the CD, I will tell you that “Country Boy Downtime” reminds me very much of what we hear from Colt. I also like the title track, “Nothing in Particular”. by the time I got down to “All Weekend Long,” I realized I was paying more attention to the words than I was to the rap. For me, that was a good thing. I really believe that (considering the kind of music this is), all the songs are good – and are going to be very well received by fans in the country/rap group.
Having been to a number of Colt Ford concerts and spending time with his fans, I know those fans will be getting on board to support The Lacs. In face, I’m sure many of them already are. With that, I’ll pass on the press release for all of you.
Fueled by fan demand, Average Joes Entertainment’s, The LACS, are back with Nothing In Particular, an 11-track collection of hard-hitting, mud-slinging fan favorites slated to hit stores on October 28, 2014. Nothing In Particular features songs that have either never been available on CD, together on one album, or previously released. As a tribute to their loyal fan base, the duo has unlocked the vault to make these rare tracks available on one hit-packed album. Pre-order Nothing In Particular here.
This collection of The LACS “must-haves” brings it all back to where it started 300,000 plus albums ago. Featured in the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times, The LACS have gained major media attention far past their backwoods origin.

This year’s Lactoberfest, set for October 17-18 in Bloomingdale, GA, features headliner Molly Hatchet and appearances by CMT reality stars Maddie Breaux and Tiffany Heinen, and The Dreadknots from the History Channel’s “Ax Men.”
