Lonestar - Official Artist Site

The International Festival of Country Music at Wembley Arena was worth reviving.

4 out of 5 stars
 
 
 
 
 Lonestar, remembered for their big international hit Amazed, got an even bigger welcome than McEntire. For much of their set they sounded like a rock band, even finishing with The Beatles’ Get Back. But with the moving ballad I’m Already There they reminded us of country’s greatest strength: picture-painting, story-based, tear-your-heart-out lyrics that are the most direct and lucid in popular music.

Reba McEntire, Ricky Skaggs, Lonestar to play

Wembley Arena, Sunday February 26th 2012

After a 20-year break, the pioneering and much loved International Festival of Country Music returns to Wembley Arena on Sunday, February 26th, 2012. The stellar line-up features the very best in country, roots and bluegrass music.

In a rare UK appearance, international country superstar Reba McEntire will headline the all day festival. With a career that spans over five decades and includes two Grammy Awards, 55 million worldwide album sales and 63 U.S. top ten hits, Reba is one of the biggest selling female artists of all time. Having last performed in the UK 12 years ago, the Wembley appearance will give British fans a rare opportunity to enjoy a true legend, live on the London stage. 

Reba will be joined by fourteen-time Grammy Award winner Ricky Skaggs, a country trailblazer who struck his first chords on a mandolin over 52 years ago. Ricky, who has collaborated with numerous artists including Bruce Hornsby, Emmylou Harris and Jack White, will be bringing his own inimitable take on bluegrass and roots music to the festival.
