With last week’s departure of RICHIE MCDONALD as lead singer of LONESTAR, he has now been replaced by DREW WOMACK. Drew previously fronted the band SONS OF THE DESERT. He is a CMA and ACM-winning singer as well as a hit songwriter.  Lonestar was founded in 1992 by McDonald, John Rich, Keech Rainwater, Michael Britt and Dean Sams.  This is the second time McDonald has departed the group.

McDonald now joins “The Frontmen Of Country,  a group which also includes former Little Texas singer Tim Rushlow and Restless Heart frontman Larry Stewart. They have plans to tour in 2021, playing hits from all three bands on a planned-for coast-to-coast run.
