A ten-year anniversary is reason to celebrate, and this year’s Cattle Barons’ Ball Committee is ready to take their theme “Hats Off to Fighting Cancer” to a whole new level by roping in the multi-platinum country music quarter, Lonestar, as the entertainment for their western-themed gala.

“We’re thrilled to have Lonestar perform at our Ball,” said event chair Kay Fulp. “They have been so generous in giving their time – especially this year when they are celebrating their twenty year anniversary. What could be more fitting – great entertainment for a great cause?”

Lonestar is marking their career milestone in more ways than one. The quartet is working hard on a new album and embarking on an extensive anniversary tour, with over 90 dates scheduled in North America alone. Known for merging their country roots with strong melodies and rich vocals, Lonestar has amassed RIAA-certified sales in excess of ten million album units since their national launch in 1995 and achieved ten #1 country hits including "No News," "Come Crying To Me," and their crossover smash "Amazed" . The band's awards include a 1999 ACM Single of The Year for “Amazed” and the 2001 CMA Vocal Group of the Year.

For all their record and ticket sales, the biggest accomplishment of the band's storied career has been witnessing the impact of Lonestar songs in the lives of others. "Music is a very powerful tool and can help people going through both good and bad times," observes lead vocal Richie McDonald. Nowhere has this been more evident than in the group's performances for U.S. armed forces stationed overseas in Iraq and Kuwait, where classics like "I'm Already There" have elicited powerful emotional displays from men and women who've put their lives on the line defending America.

"When you can truly say that what you do can make a difference, that it really can impact somebody's life in a positive way, that's the greatest thing," admits keyboard player and songwriter Dean Sams. “That’s why we are so pleased to be able to perform for the American Cancer Society – we want to make a difference in every way we can.”

The Cattle Barons’ Ball will be held at Falcon Field on Saturday, November 10. Over the past nine years, the Ball has raised over $1.1 million for the American Cancer Society. The Steering Committee is now accepting sponsorships and donations for the event.

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.
