Both born and raised in small town southern Georgia, Brian “Rooster” King (guitar and lead vocals) moved to Clay “Uncle Snap” Sharpe’s hometown of Baxley, and the two instantly hit it off. Their love of music led to the two starting The Lacs (short for Loud A** Crackers). The duo rented a recording studio and knocked out twenty songs in three days and started selling the CDs in the parking lot of the local Wal-mart. When the pair started selling as many as a thousand CDs in a day, they realized they had something, and they took their act on the road to every bar in the state that would have them.
After self-releasing a few CDs and creating a good-sized following throughout the Southeast, The Lacs caught the eye of country rapper Colt Ford’s indie label Average Joe’s Entertainment. They soon signed with subsidiary Backroads Records and found that their following was bigger than they thought. The duo’s last four albums have reached the Top 20 of Billboard‘s Country and Rap charts. The latest album by the pair, entitled Outlaw in Me, came out last May.
