Ten million albums later and still proving to be a force to
be reckoned with, country supergroup Lonestar will take the stage at the Kovalchick
Convention and Athletic Complex on Thursday, May 24, at 7:30 p.m.
Lonestar is known for merging their country roots with strong
melodies and rich vocals. Comprised of Richie McDonald (lead vocals), Michael
Britt (lead guitar and backing vocals), Keech Rainwater (drums), and Dean
Sams (keyboards and backing vocals), Lonestar has amassed RIAA-certified
sales in excess of 10 million album units. Since their national launch in 1995, they have had over 20 singles on the Hot
Country song chart. The band has had 10 number one country hits, including “No
News,” “Come Crying To Me,” and their crossover smash
“Amazed” (which was also number one on the Billboard Hot 100, the first
record since 1983’s “Islands in the Stream” to top both charts).
The group has recorded
seven albums, one EP, and a greatest hits package for the defunct BNA Records,
and one album each for three different independent labels
IUP students, faculty, and staff can save on tickets when they present their I-Card at the KCAC Box Office.
