Lonestar is an American country music band consisting of lead singer Cody Collins (born in Pace, Florida), Michael Britt (born Michael Wayne Britt, 15 June 1966, in Fort Worth, Texas), Keech Rainwater (born Randy Keech Rainwater, 24 January 1963, in Plano, Texas) and Dean Sams (born Kenneth Dean Sams, 3 August 1966, in Garland, Texas). Until September 2007, Richie McDonald was the band's lead singer; he departed in pursuit of a solo career.

Beginnings:
Lonestar began in 1992 as a band named Texassee; this name was derived from the fact that all five members were natives of Texas, and met in Nashville, Tennessee's Opryland USA theme park. The original lineup consisted of lead singer Richie McDonald; guitarist Michael Britt; drummer Keech Rainwater; keyboardist Dean Sams; and bass guitarist/co-lead vocalist John Rich. The band's name was later changed to Lonestar. They first played at a concert in Nashville in 1993 and began touring after a booking agent then added the group to his roster. A live EP was released in 1994, shortly before the group signed to BNA Records. Their first single, "Tequila Talkin'", reached a peak of #8 on the U.S. Billboards Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart. It was followed by the release of their eponymous debut album. Certified for gold sales by the RIAA, the album also produced the band's first Number One single in the hit "No News". In 1996, lead singer Richie McDonald also sang harmony vocals on Mindy McCready's Top 20 single "Maybe He'll Notice Her Now". This song and "Heartbroke Every Day" (the only single on which John Rich sang lead) overlapped on the charts.

Crazy Nights:
In 1997, the band released its second album, Crazy Nights. Two of the singles from this album -- "Say When" (one of the band's first ballads) and "Come Cryin' to Me" (their second Number One) were co-written by John Rich, while the 1998 single "Everything's Changed" was co-written by McDonald. Shortly after the release of "Everything's Changed", Rich left to pursue a solo career on BNA, which would later prove unsuccessful. He has since become one half of the successful country rock duo Big & Rich.

Lonely Grill:
Lonely Grill, the first album not to include Rich, was released in 1999. Its first single, "Saturday Night", failed to reach Top 40; however, it was soon followed by the ballad "Amazed", which became a highly successful crossover hit. Having spent eight weeks at Number One on the country charts, "Amazed" would later reach Number One on the Billboard Hot 100 as well, making Lonestar the first country act to top both the Hot Country Songs and Hot 100 charts since 1983, when Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton accomplished the same feat with "Islands in the Stream".

2000s:
The group continued to produce hit singles throughout the 2000s, including the Number One singles "Smile", "Tell Her", "What About Now", "I'm Already There", "My Front Porch Looking In", and "Mr. Mom". Starting with their 2004 album Let's Be Us Again, however, sales and chart performance started to decline. Only two singles were released from their 2005 album Coming Home before the album Mountains was released, also due to disappointing sales. Guitarist Michael Britt attributes the group's downfall to the label's choices in singles: "I think we painted ourselves into a corner... They (the record label) started putting out a bunch of family-type songs. I think that really pigeonholed us. The majority of the band didn't really want to continue doing that same thing. But that's what kept getting put out."

Departure of Richie McDonald:
In March 2007, Lonestar parted ways with its record label, BNA Records, due to declining sales. Lead singer Richie McDonald also announced that he would be leaving the group at the end of 2007 in search of a solo career. McDonald released his first solo single, titled "God's Still in America", in July of 2007. As of September 2007, Cody Collins has been confirmed as Richie's replacement; the band's first compilation with Cody as lead singer will be a Christmas music compilation titled My Christmas List, available exclusively through the restaurant chain Cracker Barrel.
