ARTIST BIO

The Country Concert Series announces the addition of “redneck rap duo” The LACS to its star-studded lineup for back-to-back shows in Boise and Pocatello on August 5th & 6th. 

Hick-hop? Rap-rock? Nah, categories are way too confining. Collectively as the LACS, Baxley, Georgia’s renegade redneck rap duo Clay Sharpe and Brian King create the kind of music that made them; a hybrid of elements drawn from raw outlaw country to southern rock to crunk hip-hop. That’s quite a fusion indeed, and one that captured the hearts and ears of those yearning for something fresh and relatable. “I call it the mix CD era; you put a little bit of everything on it,” Clay says of the eclectic vibe. “I feel like that’s how our music is and how it’s evolved.”

Clay and Brian have cranked out over a dozen records since their humble backwoods beginnings. “Once we were out there,” recalls Brian, “it was such a surprise there were so many people in America like us, and that could relate to our music.” The new album, including songs like ’Hellraisers in Heaven,’ ‘Hurt Like Hell,’ and ‘Redneck for Life,’ delivers a wild ride through every mood.

The LACS will bring their unique fusion of music to the 2022 Country Concert Series at Expo Idaho in Garden City on August 5th and Portneuf Health Trust Amphitheatre in Pocatello on August 6th.

Craig received one of country music’s highest honors when he was inducted as a member of the Grand Ole Opry. Before becoming a country music star and TV sensation, Morgan spent seventeen years serving our country in the Army and Army Reserves. Morgan remains an avid supporter of America’s military personnel and has made 16 overseas trips to perform for our troops. He is a recipient of the 2006 USO Merit Award and, in 2018, was awarded the Army’s Outstanding Civilian Service Medal, one of the highest awards the Department of the Army can bestow upon a civilian, in recognition of his significant dedication to our military men and women around the world.

Watch as Craig puts his survival skills learned in the military to work in the new TV series, “Beyond The Edge” (CBS/Paramount+). Nine celebrities will live in the dangerous jungles of Panama, where they face off in epic adventures and endure the most brutal conditions as they push themselves to go far beyond their comfort zone and raise money for their chosen charities. Craig, an Army veteran, is competing for Operation Finally Home, which provides custom-built, mortgage-free homes to wounded veterans and their families.

This fall, Craig will release his gripping new memoir — God, Family, Country — in partnership with Blackstone Publishing. He details all aspects of his inspiring life, revealing never-before-heard stories, including how he worked alongside the CIA as a soldier in Panama, fought sex traffickers as an undercover agent in Thailand, forged his path to country music stardom, and lives his life by the most profound values: God, family, country.
