Lonestar Proves To Be ‘Never Enders’ New Album Available Digitally & In-stores Now
10 million albums later and still proving to be a force to be reckoned with, Country supergroup, LONESTAR, is celebrating the release of their new album NEVER ENDERS. Released today with new label home Shanachie Entertainment, the album features 10 new Lonestar songs that showcase the group’s trademark sound. Impacting Country radio now, the title track, NEVER ENDERS, was penned by Richie McDonald, Deans Sams and songwriting veteran Marv Green- who was a co-writer on the band’s mega-hit “Amazed.” The album has been met with rave reviews from critics and fans alike. Never Enders is available now on iTunes HERE.
NASH Country Weekly’s Alanna Conaway proclaims: “’Never Enders’ is an invigorating reminder of the untouchable harmonies that distinguished them from every other band in the late ‘90s, and even still to this day.”
“With smooth production to compliment McDonald’s gravelly voice and the rough edges of the guitar twang, the album is a nice blend of the grit that one associates with old-timey country with modernized, pop melodies that make the songs shine as exactly what they are – strong and honest. The album doesn’t stop, but rather forges forward with each chord and lyric to mirror the acceptance of nostalgia and a true voice style” - Nashville Country Club
One Stop Country says: “Lonestar doesn’t need any studio frills or additives of pop infusing their songs to make them work; they just simply put their strong talents on the table and it works on this album, just as it has on those that have come before it. Lonestar’s comfort zone becomes a refreshing reminder of how country songs and their lyrics can still impact a listener.”

Lonestar to Release ‘Never Enders’ in April, Share Title Track
With massive hits such as “No News” and “Amazed,” Lonestar quickly cemented their status as one of country music’s biggest acts in the 1990s, but the band has been quiet in recent years. In April, however, Lonestar will release their 10th studio album, Never Enders.
Set for release on April 29, Never Enders will feature 10 new Lonestar songs that “bring the trademark sound into the contemporary arena,” according to a release from Shanachie Entertainment, the band’s label. The project’s title and title track are a tip of the hat to the group’s longevity in country music, an optimistic manifesto of sorts for a band that’s been playing more than 100 shows each year for the past two decades.

The Beat: Lonestar aims to amaze in Meadville on Sunday
Michael Britt is still amazed by the past 24 years.
The guitarist and his fellow Lonestar bandmates -- Richie McDonald, Keech Rainwater and Dean Sams -- have been able to make music, play shows around the country and have all kinds of fun since they formed in 1992.
And they're nowhere close to being done.
"We enjoy this now just as much as we ever did," said Britt, 49.
Even now, the hit-making country band keeps on truckin'. Britt and his bandmates, who just wrapped up recording their new "Never Enders" album that will drop later this spring, will play a two-show event presented by the Meadville Fraternal Order of Police on Sunday, 1 and 6 p.m., at Allegheny College in Meadville. Special guest Larry Frick will also perform during the shows.

While “Amazed” was a crossover smash for Lonestar in 1999, hitting the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s country and Hot 100 charts, the band is hardly a one-hit wonder.Lonestar, which will appear in concert Sunday night at the Stark County Fair, topped the country charts eight more times — with “I’m Already There,” “No News,” “My Front Porch Looking In,” “Mr. Mom,” “Tell Her,” “What About Now,” “Smile” and “Come Cryin’ to Me” — and scored more radio hits with “Tequila Talkin’,” “Everything Changed,” “Let’s Be Us Again” and “Walking in Memphis.”These days, 23 years after Lonestar formed in Nashville, the band remains a popular live act, playing up to 80 concerts a year. And while the string of hit country singles has ceased, the band continues to release albums, the most recent one being “Life As We Know It” (2013). Guitarist Michael Britt phoned Monday from Nashville to talk about his life with Lonestar.
Q. Is it a challenge to be touring a lot and keep things going on the home front?
A. “Typically, our weekends are when we work. For the most part we’re home through the week having normal lives. We’re at home as much as most people, maybe more than some.”
Q. What do you guys do for fun when you’re out on the road?
A. “We had two back-to-back, two-week runs out west recently. We went to Moab, Utah, rented Jeeps and drove through the trails. That was really cool. We’ve got a cornhole board. We have grills on the bus to cook out and make it like a camping trip.”
Q. Is your career in a comfortable place these days?
A. “It’s really is. We’re kind of off the rat wheel. We’re not on a major label, not on the typical album cycle, we make music as we want to. We wish we had more airplay, but we have great fans, we’re still working, we still enjoy playing and making new music.”
Q. Are you working on songs for the next Lonestar album?
A. We’re actually finishing up a new project. We have two more songs to cut, then we’re hoping to have a new album out by the end of the year.”
Q. For people who have never seen Lonestar, what can you tell me about the concert you’ll be playing in Canton this weekend?
A. “The response we get from people who’ve not seen up before is they couldn’t believe how many songs they recognized. Most know ‘Amazed’ and ‘I’m Already There,’ but we have a lot of songs people know that they might not know were by Lonestar.”
Q. You four guys have spent so much time together. Do you play certain roles in the band?
