Love It! Live Music Returns to Binghamton and It’s Amazing
If nearly 1,000 people are at Touch of Texas on a Thursday night, then you know it must be a big event. You would be right as Lonestar came back to the Southern Tier for the third time and this time with a new lead singer.
Former lead singer Richie McDonald left the group for the second time to form a new group called "The Frontmen of Country" with Larry Stewart (voice of Restless Heart) and Tim Rushlow (frontman for Little Texas).
Lonestar's New Lead Singer
Drew Womack is the new lead man for Lonestar and that name will probably ring a bell for long-time country fans. He was the lead singer for Sons of the Desert and they had a top 10 hit with "Whatever Comes First" in 1997. Drew is second from the right.
They also were the guest vocalists for Lee Ann Womack's (no relation) 2000 #1 hit "I Hope You Dance" and Ty Herndon's #1 in 1997, "It Must Be Love." Drew has also written songs for other country artists including Kenny Chesney's "She's Got It All" which was #1 for four weeks.
You may remember when Sons of the Desert opened for Trace Adkins at Pine Valley Campground in the 90s. Speaking of Pine Valley Campground, it was recently sold and the new owners have tons of cool ideas for it.
