The Frontmen drop two songs

Friday, August 18, 2023 – The Frontmen - the trio of Larry Stewart of Restless Heart, Richie McDonald, formerly of Lonestar, and Tim Rushlow, formerly of Little Texas - today released two new songs via BMG/BBR Music Group. "God Blessed Texas (The Frontmen Edition)" and "It Was Always You" are out now.

Rushlow sang lead on Little Texas' 1993 hit, "God Blessed Texas (The Frontmen Edition)," as well as "It Was Always You," an all-new tune written by Rushlow and Danny Orton.

"When Danny Orton and I wrote 'It Was Always You,' we were pulling from personal experiences and especially some of my own," said Rushlow. "This song is a reminder that real love can heal wounds and help you paint your life with a new canvas. It's sort of an anthem that tells somebody how you really feel about them, even years later."

"Doing iconic hit songs from our past was not something we took lightly," said Rushlow. "With the help of our producer, Mickey Jack Cones, we were able to pay homage to the original master recordings, but also put our own 'Frontmen spin' on the songs, and I couldn't be more proud of this rockin' new version of 'God Blessed Texas (The Frontmen Edition).'"

Earlier this year, The Frontmen debuted "Amazed (The Frontmen Edition)" and "Left Their Mark," (with McDonald singing lead on both tracks). More music, including an EP, will be released soon, with the next round featuring lead vocals by Stewart. Cones is producing the project.

CD review - Never Enders For a band with as much success, Lonestar has never made it feel easy. There was a spurt at the end of the last century where they rattled off five Number Ones in a row - trademark songs like "Amazed," "What About Now" and "I'm Already There." Beyond that golden streak, there's a story of four different record labels, a Richie McDonald solo departure in 2007 and a whole lot of swings and misses. Part of their problem is one of identity, torn between wanting ...
CD review - A Restless Heart Christmas Getting the mixture right for a Christmas album seems easy. Just put together a few new songs with a healthy helping of standbys, and you've got it, right? But it's surprising how often musical artists get this simple mix wrong. Such is not the case with Restless Heart's A Restless Heart Christmas, however. Listening to this fine 10-track release makes one wonder why so many artists just don't get it, however. Appropriately, the album opens with a new one titled Season of ...
CD review - Life As We Know It With the release of its new album, Lonestar celebrates 20 years as a band. The band also welcomed original vocalist Richie McDonald back to the fold for its first full-length album in three years, and they released it through their own label. All of this is great news for fans of the band that since 1995 has sales in excess of 10 million album units and charted 18 Top 10 songs, including 9 number 1s. Lonestar has clearly found a formula for its music that reaches mainstream country and pop music ...
