Acclaimed country music hitmakers LONESTAR have announced plans for their extensive North American 2019 concert tour dubbed "Hits & More Hits." 2019 marks the 20th anniversary of the band's triple-platinum Lonely Grill album, which featured four songs to hit #1 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart: "Amazed" (also a #1 Hot 100 hit), "Smile," "What About Now" and "Tell Her." Lonestar will showcase much of the album along the "Hits & More Hits" trek and are discussing recording new stripped-down versions of their hits. The band promises an intimate and memorable performance not-to-be-missed by any Lonestar fan.

LONESTAR --Richie McDonald  (lead vocals), Michael Britt (lead guitar & backing vocals), Keech Rainwater (drums) and Dean Sams (keyboards & backing vocals)--has been rehearsing for the tour and recording new music in Nashville since the wrap of their late 2018 "Not So Silent Night" tour with Phil Vassar.

 "We are celebrating another milestone in 2019," says Dean Sams.  "It's the 20th Anniversary of the release of our Lonely Grill CD that had 4 number 1 singles on it and sold over 4 million records. Hope to see everyone out to celebrate with us on our 'Hits and More Hits Tour' in a city near you!  After all, it's you the fans that made it happen!!!" 

With over 45 "Hits & More Hits" shows booked so far, the tour kicks off early March in Florida and will weave its way coast-to-coast across the U.S. and Canada before wrapping up late this year.

The Georgia Satellites 

The Georgia Satellites are a Southern rock band from Atlanta, Georgia. They are best known for their 1986 #2 single "Keep Your Hands to Yourself".

 

At a time when rock & roll didn't care about its roots, the Georgia Satellites came crashing into the charts with a surprise hit single to remind everybody where the music had come from. The hit single, 1986's "Keep Your Hands to Yourself," rocked as hard as an old Chuck Berry song, as well as being almost as clever. The Satellites weren't a back-to-basics roots rock band, either -- their straightforward sound borrowed equally from Berrythe Rolling Stonesthe FacesLittle Feat, and AC/DC, with a Southern backwoods bent. At their best, the Satellites were just a damn good rock & roll band, driven by the classic yet fresh songwriting of lead singer/guitarist Dan Baird. On the strength of "Keep Your Hands to Yourself," their first major-label album sold well, but the follow-up, Open All Night, did not; radio and MTV had treated the band as a kind of novelty -- a bunch of hicks kicking out rock & roll offered a break between the slick pop-metal of Bon Jovi and the introspective pop of Peter Gabriel. By the time they released Open All Night in 1988, no one was interested, even if the album was only slightly weaker than the debut. After one more album, 1989's In the Land of Salvation and Sin, the band called it quits. Guitarist Rick Richards joined Izzy Stradlin's Ju Ju Hounds three years later; Baird pursued a solo career and had a small hit in late 1992 with "I Love You Period." In 1996, he helped form the Yayhoos after releasing his second solo album. The Yayhoos have two albums, the most recent being 2006's Put the Hammer Down. During the mid-'90s, the Georgia Satellites reunited without Baird. They released Shaken Not Stirred in 1997.
