Billboard Presents Bud Light Backyard at CMA Fest Day Two Brings Vibrant Sets from Dasha, LOCASH and George Birge

Following the first day of Billboard Presents Bud Light Backyard at CMA Fest, which featured a trio of hot new acts captivating attendees at a packed Tin Roof on Lower Broadway on June 7, the second day of the Backyard experience on Saturday (June 8) continued to thrill fans 21+ with sets by fun-loving duo LOCASH, compelling Texas singer-songwriter George Birge and current country It Girl Dasha, who is having a massive breakthrough with “Austin.”

Similar to the day before when Corey Kent, Dalton Dover and Alana Springsteen took the second-floor stage, fans enjoyed line dancing lessons and other activities on the first floor between Saturday’s performances. Though many of the artists were playing other gigs around town during CMA Fest, Billboard Presents Bud Light Backyard provided the opportunity for a front-row, intimate experience attendees won’t soon forget. 

LOCASH, comprised of duo Preston Brust and Chris Lucas, formed 16 years ago and has been a strong presence on the Country Airplay charts, registering more than 13 hits, including such toe-tappers as “I Know Somebody” and “One Big Country Song.” Their new single, “Hometown Town,” is their highest debuting track yet.

Birge, formerly of popular Texas duo Waterloo Revival, has been cutting out a strong solo career for himself even before signing with RECORDS Nashville, based on the strength of the simmering “Mind on You.” He just followed up his debut album with a seven-song EP, Cowboy Songs.

Dasha is a singer-songwriter with a slew of confessional love songs at the ready. But the California native, who signed to Warner Records, has burst through in a red-hot blaze on the strength of “Austin,” a fiery, fiesty breakup song that exploded on TikTok and inspired its own line dance. “Austin” reached No. 3 on Billboard’s Hot 100 and is still climbing the Country Airplay chart. 

Here are some highlights from day two of Billboard Presents Bud Light Backyard at CMA Fest.
