Richie McDonald has left Lonestar to permanently join The Frontmen of Country. Lonestar announced they’ve added multi-award-winning singer/songwriter Drew Womack as their new lead singer.
“We are thrilled to have Drew joining us. We have been friends and have admired his work and outstanding voice for many years,” the band says. “It will be an exciting new chapter in our storied career and know he will be welcomed by the industry and fans alike. Fans will hear more than 22 combined hits, between the amazing catalog of Lonestar and Sons Of The Desert, and even hit songs written by Drew for such iconic country artists as Kenny Chesney.”
Womack co-wrote “She’s Got It All” for Chesney,” a song that spent four weeks at No. 1. He also scored Top 10 hits with Sons of the Desert so this seems like an easy transition for the singer/songwriter.
“I can’t adequately express just how excited I am to join these guys and create and make music with Dean, Keech, and Michael,” he gushes. “I’ve known and respected them since [Sons Of The Desert] played the same circuits and it’ll be an honor to be on stage with them.”
Lonestar is planning to embark on a national tour later this year.
