A Live@CMA performance gathered industry VIPs and media shining the spotlight on a trio of veteran hit-makers; The Frontmen, featuring Larry Stewart of Restless Heart, Tim Rushlow, formerly of Little Texas and Richie McDonald of Lonestar. Each performed a brief medley of some of their respective hits and together they combined their voices and talents for the debut Nashville performance of the recently released single “If It Wasn’t For The Radio,” written by Kellys Collins, Austin Cunningham and David Fenley. Fans can listen to the single on Spotify and Apple Music and purchase it on iTunes or Amazon.
With a tip of the hat to radio opening the doors to their own successful careers, these individual talents combine their unique voices to create a magical blend of harmonies and heartfelt sentiment that is sure to touch the hearts of listeners who can relate their own life experiences of how music and the radio continues to impact their own lives.
“We heard a song that we could relate to with three verses and choruses that were tailor-made for our voices, but it was the message of the song that really resonated with us,” states McDonald.
With a collective 30 million records sold and over 50 top 40 hits between them, The Frontmen have been performing shows for our military at bases and on aircraft carriers around the globe for the past eight years while expanding their brand with shows for corporate events and at casinos and fairs across America. And while the perception by some that this is a new group, the project has been an organic labor of love and a fun, creative outlet. Each member of The Frontmen remains passionately involved in their individual groundbreaking groups, with Stewart and all original members of Restless currently on tour celebrating their 35th anniversary, McDonald and Lonestar still an in-demand touring act in their 25th year as a group, and Rushlow on a new career path with his 20-piece Big Band performing classics from the Great American Songbook.
“If It Wasn’t For The Radio” allows these three critically-acclaimed talents to reach new audiences and perform together while sharing the spotlight singing their new single. Listen to a Spotify Playlist of the hits here: Music of The Frontmen.
