Aspiring Country trio, Lockeland and award winning Country artist, Tim Rushlow, best known for his high energy performances and his ability to captivate every audience have collaborated on a three song mash-up of “Amy’s Back In Austin,” “What Might Have Been” and “God Bless Texas,” previous hit songs by the country music supergroup, Little Texas, of which Rushlow was lead singer of in the 90’s. The energetic and fun nature of both Lockeland and Rushlow is captured in the footage which was filmed and edited by Kevin Deems, tracked at Blue Grotto Sound, and filmed at 2Twenty2 Studio.
“We are very excited to share this video, with not only our wonderful fans, but everyone who loves the great era of 90s country music. Working with Tim Rushlow was such an honor for us,” exclaimed Lockeland. “We are very grateful to have had the opportunity to work with someone who influenced us so greatly growing up. Not to mention, we all shared many laughs during the whole process!”
“Having an up and coming band like Lockeland want to perform the music I made with the guys in Little Texas is a real honor,” exclaimed Tim Rushlow. “They are great guys and sound stellar. I really think they’re headed places and I’m honored I got to be a part of their story. Go get em’ boys!”
The idea for the mash-up was cultivated by the love of the 90’s era music and admiration of the easy recognized songs still very popular today. A great song ignites emotion and these songs for various reasons resonated with many listeners.
Maverick Magazine named Lockeland (Mark Vikingstad, Michael Boris and Kyndon Oakes) in Top Eight to Watch in 2020. Lockeland is straight up contemporary country with a throwback twist; the trio’s blend of talents complement one another naturally and instinctively. The group’s polished; easy does-it dynamics, intricate three-part harmonies and simplistic, meaningful storylines are its signature. Since the launch of the trio’s debut single, “Til The Cows Come Home,” which landed in the Top 40 on the MusicRow Country Breakout Chart, Lockeland has appeared on the CMA Spotlight Stage (CMA Fest 2019) and opened for Big & Rich on two separate occasions in 2019. The group embarked on an international tour (canvassing England and Scotland) where the trio provided direct support for CAM at Millport Country Festival and shared the stage at the Long Road Festival with other artists such as: Kip Moore, Josh Turner, LANCO, Morgan Evans & Logan Mize. The bands second single, “Drive,” was released in Sept. 2019, “These Hands” released Nov 1, 2019 followed by “Keep Us Young” Feb 14, 2020. “Made For Mornings” continues to climb the Music Row Country Breakout Chart and currently sits in the top 40 and was named as Chris Country’s Single of the Week in the UK.
About Tim Rushlow:
A versatile entertainer who sold millions of records during his time as lead singer of
country music super group Little Texas, Tim Rushlow is a master song interpreter with a deep, abiding love for the classics. During the band’s impressive run in the ’90’s, he and the rest of the Little Texas members charted over a dozen hits including “God Blessed Texas” and the multi-genre crossover smash “What Might Have Been.” Following the band’s breakup, Tim embarked upon a solo career with Atlantic Records and released a self-titled CD that yielded the heartwarming Top Ten hit “She Misses Him,” about a couple’s touching battle with Alzheimer’s. Following a few more endeavors in musical groups and pairings, in 2009 Tim decided to refocus his energies on honing his performing skills as a solo act, launching a well-received acoustic tour at smaller listening rooms around the country. The challenge of engaging audiences and laying his emotions bare on the stage in front of intimate crowds night after night fired up Tim’s creativity to a new level and renewed his love for the classic sounds he grew up listening to and first cut his musical teeth on like Bobby Darin, Frank Sinatra, Perry Como, Dean Martin, and Andy Williams and the experience soon inspired him to take his career in a whole new direction as the modern-day crooner he had always envisioned himself to be. His new TV Show “Tim’s Place” will showcase some of Rushlow’s own personal favorite jazz and Great American Songbook standards along with his own Billboard-charted big band songs, plus his trademark quick wit and deep knowledge of the music from the golden era of American popular music
