Chalk it up to their Texas-meets-Tennessee grit and tenacity, but there’s nothing Lonestar loves more than a challenge: 500 concerts in their first two years, crossing over from country to pop and back again after no one else had topped both charts at the same time since 1983, selling 10 million albums, landing ten Top 10 country hits and collecting nine Top 10 pop hits, packing audiences with guys who love their rocking shows and ladies who swoon over the romantic hunks. That’s just the kind of hard work that fuels the band.
Lonestar has sold more than 10 million albums and landed ten number one country hits as well as nine Top 40 songs on the Billboard Hot 100 charts. Their numerous hits include “I’m Already There,” “Come Cryin’ To Me” and their smash, “Amazed,” which spent eight weeks at the number one spot on the country charts as well as reaching number one on the Billboard Hot 100. This dual win made them the first country act since Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton’s “Islands In the Stream” in 1983 to accomplish this career milestone. But the band makes it clear that they are still growing. “After everything we’ve been through, we’re still trying new things,” says Michael Britt. “We’re still growing as artists, and we’re able to be creative in addition to having the wealth of success and experience that we’ve achieved – that’s what sets us apart.”
