MULTI-PLATINUM, AWARD-WINNING GROUP LONESTAR WELCOMES DREW WOMACK AS LEAD SINGER
Lonestar, one of country music’s most celebrated groups, announces the addition of Brownwood, Texas native, and multi-award-winning, singer/songwriter Drew Womack as the group’s lead singer. Dean Sams, Michael Britt, and Keech Rainwater, the remaining three principals of the ACM, CMA, and Billboard award-winning group are looking forward to the next chapter of the band as they set out on a national tour later this year.
Lonestar says, “We are thrilled to have Drew joining us. We have been friends and have admired his work and outstanding voice for many years. It will be an exciting new chapter in our storied career and know he will be welcomed by the industry and fans alike. Fans will hear more than 22 combined hits, between the amazing catalog of Lonestar and Sons Of The Desert, and even hit songs written by Drew for such iconic country artists as Kenny Chesney."
Drew Womack is a CMA and ACM-winning singer as well as a hit songwriter. He first hit the national scene with his band, Sons of the Desert out of Waco, TX. They enjoyed top 10 hits at country radio for Sony and MCA Records. Additionally, they collaborated with Lee Ann Womack (no relation) on her crossover hit “I Hope You Dance.” He also co-wrote with Craig Wiseman the 4-week number 1 song for Kenny Chesney “She’s Got It All.
“I can’t adequately express just how excited I am to join these guys and create and make music with Dean, Keech, and Michael. I’ve known and respected them since (Sons Of The Desert) played the same circuits and it’ll be an honor to be on stage with them,” says Womack.
Lonestar has amassed RIAA-certified sales in excess of ten million albums since their national launch in 1995 and achieved ten #1 country hits including "No News," "Come Crying To Me,” “I’m Already There,” “What About Now,” and their crossover smash "Amazed" (which was also #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, the first record since 1983's "Islands in the Stream", to top both charts). The band's awards include 1996 ACM Top New Vocal Group, 1999 ACM Single of The Year for "Amazed" (the song also won “Song of the Year “), 2001 CMA “Vocal Group of the Year and 2002 ACM Top Vocal Group. With an average of 80 dates worldwide per year, they are celebrating over 25 years together.
