Lonestar is an American country music group consisting of Richie McDonald, Michael Britt, Keech Rainwater, and Dean Sams. Before the group’s foundation, both Rainwater and Britt were members of the group Canyon. John Rich was a member until 1998, when he was fired from the group; he later founded Big & Rich with Big Kenny, and Lonestar has not had an official bass guitarist since. Between 2007 and 2011, McDonald exited the band for a solo career, with former McAlyster lead singer Cody Collins replacing him as lead vocalist in this timespan. McDonald has also composed singles for Clay Walker, The Wilkinsons, Billy Dean, and Sara Evans, in addition to releasing two solo albums and singing guest vocals on Mindy McCready’s 1996 single “Maybe He’ll Notice Her Now”.
Lonestar is available for corporate events, private shows, milestone celebrations (birthday, anniversary), fundraisers, festivals, and more.
