Lonestar to debut new album in Versailles

DARKE COUNTY – Lonestar’s guitarist and vocalist, Michael Britt, is excited to announce the groups new album and give Darke County fans a sneak peak during their performance on March 4.

Lonestar is an American country music group from Nashville, TN. The award-winning group is celebrating their 30-year milestone by announcing their new album, Ten to 1, that will be released on June 2.

Britt says the best part about performing is watching the audience and seeing their faces. The fans’ support and reactions are what have kept him performing for all those years.

“There is no better feeling than playing songs people love and then reacting to it. I think it is just awesome to see how happy we can make people,” Britt said.

The band has had 22 top 10 singles, and 10 of the 22 singles went to number one since the band’s formation in 1992. Their soon to be released album is a blend of “fresh and familiar”, as the band reworked their top ten number one singles to match their current sound.

“It had been so long since we recorded them, and songs age over time. We just wanted to make sure we were keeping things fresh, and we have done that on the road for years,” Britt said.

Britt said the band had reworked the songs for years having reworked the set lists every year and changing arrangements. Over time, as the band had changed so had the songs, and those songs that had not steadily morphed were adapted to hold true to the growing group.

“We just wanted to change them up a little bit to make them more interesting for us to play,” Britt said. “Also having Drew Womack in the band now, we really wanted to highlight his voice, so it was a combination of a bunch of things.”
