LONESTAR

Release Date: 10/26/17

Known for merging their country roots with strong melodies and rich vocals, Lonestar has amassed RIAA-certified sales in excess of ten million album units since their national launch in 1995 and achieved ten #1 country hits including "No News," "Come Crying To Me," and their crossover smash "Amazed" (which was also #1 on the billboard Hot 100, the first record since 1983's "Islands in the Stream" to top both charts). The band's awards include a 1999 ACM Single of The Year for "amazed" (the song also won the Song of the Year award) and the 2001 CMA Vocal Group of the Year.

But it isn't hit records and trophies that have kept Lonestar going strong. On the contrary, says lead singer Richie McDonald, "honestly, through it all, the one thing that has kept Lonestar around is that we're just four good old boys from Texas." All four members originally hail from blue collar households, and place a premium on the value of hard work. "No matter how much success we've had, it didn't change us as people."

In addition to "Amazed," which was #1 with country audiences for eight weeks in a row, Lonely Grill yielded three more #1 country hits: "Smile," "Tell Her," and "What About Now." THe 2001 release I'm Already there topped the country album charts, as did the band's 2003 retrospective From There To Here: The Greatest Hits, which produced yet another #1 single, "My Front Porch Looking In."

For all their record and ticket sales, the biggest accomplishment of the ban'ds storied career has been witnessing the impact of Lonestar songs in the lives of others. "Music is a very powerful tool and can help people going through both good and bad times," observes McDonald.
