Lonestar Sings the Praises of Small Towns
The members of country group Lonestar, who have sold 10 million albums, know of what they sing, especially when it comes to life in a small town. Nowhere is that more evident than on their just-released eighth album, Coming Home. Lead singer Richie McDonald, 43, a resident of Carthage, Tenn. (pop. 2,251), is quick to note that the song Little Town hits home—literally. "It's totally about down-to-earth, simple things in life, real people, real places," he says. "I'm from a small town, I live in a little town, and we're raising our kids in a little town. This is the life that me and my family live."
