Lonestar Showcases New Vocalist
Lonestar introduced its new lead vocalist, Cody Collins, at a Nashville music industry showcase, Sept. 12, at the Rocketown club.
Cody replaces Richie McDonald, who left the band to pursue a solo career. Before the show, Cody and Lonestar bandmates Dean Sams, Michael Britt and Keech Rainwater met with members of the Nashville media, and talked about the group’s new direction. “Cody’s voice just has that edge,” Dean said. “I’m really excited about Cody and the future of this band.” Cody added that his more experienced Lonestar mates have been helping him through the rough spots. “They’re preparing me for what’s ahead,” Cody explained. “I know I have a lot of fans to win over.” Cody proved a stirring vocalist on Lonestar standards like “Amazed” and “No News,” as well as new material.
