Larry Stewart of Restless Heart, Tim Rushlow, formerly of Little Texas and Richie McDonald of Lonestar have formed a new group, The Frontmen, and are releasing a new single “If It Wasn’t For The Radio” to radio independently. The new tune was penned by Kellys Collins, Austin Cunningham and David Fenley and is a tip of the hat to radio opening the doors to The Frontmen’s own successful careers as hit makers with a collective 30 million records sold and over 50 top 40 hits between them.
“To find a song like this that speaks to who we are, why we do what we do and why we’re here, with honesty and a huge dose of real life, is incredibly humbling and moving!” states Stewart. “At this moment in time, we couldn’t have found a more perfect song for Richie, Tim and myself to sink our hearts into. Because I do not believe we would be where we are today, if it wasn’t for the radio. Truly a gift!”
“The Frontmen are definitely special. There is a common thread that runs through us and our catalog of songs and I am honored to share the stage with these two amazing singers,” says Rushlow. “From multiple global tours performing for our military to shows across America for our fans it is always humbling when the people sing our songs back to us, never missing a lyric. That is simply because radio has embraced us and the music we have all made over the years. Radio is why we’ve had these amazing careers. So, it is entirely fitting that we finally get to record a great song from the heart and give a nod of thanks in their direction.”
The three will launch an accompanying tour beginning Feb. 3, which will kick off in Mississippi and continue on to Oklahoma, Arizona, Minnesota and Nevada with more stops added through the Spring.
