Shanachie Entertainment proudly announces the signing of hit-making country rock group Lonestar. Just over two decades since their debut album, Lonestar has sold over 10 million albums worldwide and notched ten #1 country radio hits.
“We’re thrilled to have concluded this deal with Lonestar,” states Shanachie Entertainment General Manager Randall Grass. “What is impressive to me is that 20 years down the line, Lonestar, can still deliver irresistibly catchy, perfectly crafted country rock songs that are every bit as good as their hits.”
Lonestar’s highly anticipated CD, Never Enders, features ten new original Lonestar songs that bring the band’s trademark sound into the contemporary arena. The first single, the title track, hits radio March 10, 2016. Shanachie will release Never Enders on April 29, 2016.
Known for merging their country roots with strong melodies and rich vocals, Lonestar, comprised of Richie McDonald (lead vocals), Michael Britt (lead guitar & backing vocals), Keech Rainwater (drums), and Dean Sams (keyboards & backing vocals), 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. With over a 100 dates worldwide per year, they are celebrating over 20 years together. The vital music on Never Enders proves once again that the men of Lonestar are truly Never Enders!
