Country superstars Lonestar coming to the Showroom
Country superstars Lonestar is coming to the Showroom at the Turning Stone Resort & Casino at 8 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 25. The casino is located at 5218 Patrick Rd, Verona. Tickets range from $48.50-$64. The band is celebrating their twenty year anniversary and has reunited with their original lead singer Richie McDonald. The multi-platinum country music quartet is working on a brand new album and embarking on an extensive anniversary tour, with over 90 dates scheduled in North America alone.
“Twenty years ago, when we put this little band together to play in some bars and make a little money, I dreamed it pretty good,” admits keyboard player and songwriter Dean Sams. “But I never dreamed it quite this good.”
Originally formed in Nashville in 1992, Lonestar played over 500 shows before landing a recording contract. “We traveled for two and a half, maybe three years, just playing in bars,” Britt recalls. “We were starting from zero back then.” But all those gigs paid off. By the time they released their self-titled debut album in 1995, they already had an enthusiastic fan base. Their first single, “Tequila Talkin’,” went Top Ten on the country charts. Its follow-up did even better: “No News” would be the first of many #1 singles for Lonestar.
Lonestar continued to ascend in the years that followed. Their third album, 1999’s Lonely Grill, was certified multi-platinum in both the United States and Canada. 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.”
With McDonald now back in the fold, Lonestar is starting its third decade of making music together with a bang. The best may be yet to come. “I’m so excited to think about the songs that are going to come out of the next chapter of Lonestar,” concludes Rainwater. “And I’m looking forward to another twenty years of great music.”
