Lonestar has been one of the most successful country bands and their million selling crossover hit "Amazed" ruled the charts worldwide. When the record sales started declining, frontman Richie McDonald left the band, but his efforts as a solo artist gained limited attention.
In the meantime Lonestar hired Cody Collins to sing lead, recorded two solid albums and made their party heard around the world on several worldwide tours, including an impressive show in Interlaken, Switzerland, where I got to interview them.
Richie's return might get Lonestar back on charts as well as increase the sales again. There's nothing but bright future ahead of Lonestar.
One of the very first shows with Richie McDonald will be performances and the International Festival of Country Music in London (UK), Belfast (UK), Zurich (Switzerland) and Mannheim (Germany).
