Lonestar and Richie McDonald – Reunited!
Welcome back, Richie! One of country music’s most successful acts of the 1990s and their lead singer are sharing the stage once again. The newly reunited Lonestar has released its first single since lead singer Richie McDonald’s return to the group after a five year hiatus to concentrate on his solo career. We’re thrilled to have Richie and Lonestar returning to AMT on September 20.
In a 2011 story written by Chuck Dauphin and posted on Billboard.com, Richie McDonald said that despite his leaving the group, the friendship has remained strong, and that led to discussing getting together again.
“Five years has come and gone since I left Lonestar,” Richie said. “We’ve all tried other avenues and the fact remains that some things were just meant to be. With the Lonestar 20 year reunion approaching, Dean, Michael, Keech and I got together and have decided we have some unfinished business to take care of.”
Lonestar made their initial blast on the Country music scene back in 1995 with the top ten “Tequila Talkin,” and have topped the charts with such songs as “Come Cryin’ To Me,” “Mr. Mom,” and their blockbuster 1999 hit “Amazed.”
