The Frontmen Plan Okanogan Concert

Updated: Jun 28

The Frontmen will perform Sept. 6 at the Okanogan County Fair.

They have 30 No. 1 hits, have sold 30 million albums and are the soundtrack to every Friday night honkytonk, first kiss and broken heart for the last 30 years.

Fans sing the words to every song in every set –and while many people have yet to know their name, just about everybody can sing their songs.

The Okanogan County Fair is proud to present “The Frontmen” live in concert Friday, Sept. 6, at the Okanogan County Fairgrounds, 175 Rodeo Trail.

The Frontmen – comprised of three former lead singers, Larry Stewart (Restless Heart), Richie McDonald (Lonestar) and Tim Rushlow (Little Texas) – is country music’s hottest new supergroup.

The men have already mastered the stage, succeeded on radio and nightly take sold-out audiences on a rollercoaster of 90’s nostalgic smash hits then transcend their past hit parade with fresh new and original songs that are unmistakably The Frontmen today.

“We are thrilled to bring in three of the biggest voices in country music,” Okanogan County Fair Advisory Committee member and entertainment director Brock Hires said. “It just doesn’t get any better than the frontmen of Restless Heart, Lonestar and Little Texas!”

The show begins at 8 p.m. in the fairgrounds’ rodeo arena and is free with fair admission.

Stewart’s Restless Heart launched in 1984 with their self-titled debut album and went on to collect eight No. 1 hits and sing-along favorites, including “The Bluest Eyes in Texas,” “I’ll Still Be Loving You," “Why Does It Have to Be (Wrong or Right),” “Wheels,” “Fast Movin’ Train” and “A Tender Lie.”

They were named Top Vocal Group by the Academy of Country Music in 1989.

“Restless Heart performed at the 1989 Okanogan County Fair for the grand opening of the Agriplex,” Hires said.

Rushlow’s Little Texas kicked off in 1991 with top 10 hits “Some Guys Have All the Love” and “First Time for Everything,” then followed up with its debut album of the same name. Subsequent hits include “God Blessed Texas,” “Kick a Little,” “My Love,” “What Might Have Been” and “Amy’s Back in Austin.”

Little Texas won the Academy of Country Music’s (ACM) Top Vocal Group in 1993.

McDonald joined Lonestar in 1992, and the group achieved nine No. 1 songs, including “No News,” “Come Cryin’ to Me,” “What About Now,” “I’m Already There,” “My Front Porch Looking In,” “Mr. Mom” and “Amazed” - an eight-week No. 1 song and the most popular country song of 1999.

“Amazed” was the Academy of Country Music’s Single and Song of the Year in 1999, and Lonestar was the Top Vocal Group for the ACM and the Country Music Association in 2001.
