LONESTAR's 'Life As We Know It' to Be Released 6/4
Multi-platinum and award-winning country quartet LONESTAR has announced that their new album, LIFE AS WE KNOW IT, will be released Tuesday, June 4 via the band's own 4 Star Records, in partnership with The Orchard. LIFE AS WE KNOW IT marks the first full-length album release for LONESTAR in over three years and the first since the much-anticipated return of revered original vocalist RICHIE McDONALD.
The album's second single"Maybe Someday" is currently spinning nationwide at country radio. The soaring and plaintive breakup song--written by the group's McDONALD and DEAN SAMS along with songwriters Frank Myers and Billy Montana--is available for purchase now on iTunes. The "Maybe Someday" video has been officially added to CMT.com CMT Pure and CMT Mobile. (see it here: http://www.cmt.com/videos/lonestar/899152/maybe-someday.jhtml) and the band speaks at length about the writing of the song in this newly released clip: http://youtu.be/EQaR3oOzL18. Recently shot in Nashville, the "Maybe Someday" video features the return of Sunny Mabrey ("Mad Men," "Desperate Housewives," "CSI: Miami"), the actress from the video for their massive hit"Amazed" (which can be seen here).
Known both for their strong country roots as well as their multi-genre crossover appeal that's led to a history of success on the pop/rock charts, multi-platinum-selling LONESTAR has only their own career records to break. The band has RIAA-certified sales in excess of 10 million album units since their national launch in 1995. According to Billboard, "Lonestar's chart history boasts 18 Top 10 songs, which includes three Top 5 peaks, and nine No. 1's." (8/9/12)
