Lonestar’s members are Dean Sams (keyboards, acoustic guitar, background vocals), Michael Britt (lead guitarist, background vocals), Keech Rainwater (drums), and Drew Womack (lead vocals, guitar). Lonestar found success with their self-titled 1995 debut, which spawned the hit “Tequila Talkin’” along with “No News.” The band has won many of music’s top honors, including Academy Of Country Music Awards for New Vocal Group in 1996, and Single and Song Of The Year in 2000, along with Humanitarian Of The Year in 2002. They also won the Country Music Association’s Vocal Group of the Year and International Artist Achievement award in 2001. Lonestar has sold more than 10.5 million records since its formation.

In 2021 Drew Womack joined the group bringing his soulful spin on the songs. Womack is no stranger to chart success. He co-wrote Kenny Chesney’s first No. 1 hit, “She’s Got It All.” His former band, Sons of the Desert, had multiple hits in the ’90s and collaborated with Lee Ann Womack on her crossover hit “I Hope You Dance.”
