LoCash Cowboys Fiddle Player Passes Away

Our thoughts are with the family, friends and fans of the LoCash Cowboys today after long-time fiddle player Ryan “Troop” Jones passed away yesterday. He had been with the band since 2005, and took on the challenge of playing quite a few instruments for the group including the mandolin, fiddle, and acoustic guitar. He was admitted to hospital earlier this year with a serious ulcer that later lead to contracting pneumonia.

“Today is a sad day in the Locash world. We lost Ryan “Troop” Jones…our Brother & our Best Friend. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family. Troop will live forever in our hearts.”

No funeral plans have yet been announced.

Have you ever had one of those days where nothing seemed to go right? The LoCash Cowboys probably felt that way last weekend. They were scheduled to play in Eau Claire, Wisconsin for Country Jam USA last Saturday. The night before after a show, their bus wouldn’t start and they didn’t get it fixed and get going until that Saturday morning. After finding a charter plane in Madison, WI, they manged to fly to Eau Claire and get to the stage at Country Jam at 4:59pm. But they found out that the stage manager shut the stage down due to storms coming in. The fans were upset that LoCash wouldn’t be able to perform on the main stage but Zac Brown of the Zac Brown Band got an idea.
