AMT Performers in the News

Lonestar-Every once in a while we like to check out which of the dozens of country, comedy, rock, and oldies acts we bring to the Lancaster area are making headlines in the news. Given the quality, and level of talent, of our performers, typically not a week goes by that we don’t hear about an AMT performer making waves in the news.


Lonestar has reunited with original lead singer Richie McDonald, and recently kicked off their 20th Anniversary Tour. Here’s a raving review from a show the group played a few days ago. It sounds like the group still knows how to rock. And here’s an interview with Richie McDonald himself. The groups lead singer talks about their new album, getting back with the band, their hit song “Amazed” and more. Below is a video of one of Lonestar’s many hit tunes.

Martina McBride

Another contemporary country act was in the news for giving a memorable show this past week. Country phenom Martina McBride played a rockin’ set which included her hits, as well as covers of tunes by Tom Petty and Rod Stewart, at the Sonoma County Fair the other day, and their local paper was there to review it.

Martina also took to twitter to give her opinion regarding the public apology related to the newest Twilight saga: cheating.

On the note of acting, Martina and her family moved out to LA for the summer so that her daughter, Emma, could give acting a shot. The mother of  three had this to say “I know how supportive my parents were at her age and how they did everything possible to help me be able to sing wherever and whenever I could and I’m happy we can do the same for her.”

There is a lot more in the news about acts on upcoming concert calendar, and we’ll try our best to share that with you.
