Lonestar Released Their New Single, “The Countdown,” To Country Radio.
With the 20th anniversary of the multi-platinum country band Lonestar already underway, fans will be excited to hear that the release of their new single, the melodically sparkling and lyrically urgent “The Countdown,” has been confirmed for July 17. A new album – on their own label, 4 Star Records – is expected in October.
The recently reunited quartet – Michael Britt, lead guitar & backing vocals; Richie McDonald, lead vocals & piano; Keech Rainwater, drums; and Dean Sams, keyboards and backing vocals – kicked off 2012 with a hugely successful and acclaimed European tour on a multi-artist bill with Reba McIntire and Ricky Scaggs. Lonestar also recently performed at the CMA Fest in Nashville: an invitation only sold-out show for their fan club at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum as well as the Riverfront Stage for CMA festival attendees. The group debuted “The Countdown” for the standing-room-only festival show, as well as another song, “Pretty Good Day.”
“It was a blast. Fans were singing along to the new single by the second verse.” -Dean Sams
“What a way to start the summer: in the heat, outside, with thousands of fans singing along. Back on the bus!” -Richie McDonald
Lonestar resume their touring schedule June 21 (today) in Del Mar, CA, with shows booked through October including stops in Westbury, NY (7/13), Los Angeles (7/27) and Lancaster, PA (9/20).
