Lonestar

Multi-platinum recording group Lonestar kicked off 2014 on a nationwide tour in support of their album, Life As We Know It, and now they are finishing it strong with the release of their latest single, “Pretty Good Day.” Written by frontman Richie McDonald, Marv Green & Tommy Lee James, the single launched on Play MPE in the Top 5 Downloads and Streaming charts.

Acclaimed MusicRow Magazine critic Robert Oermann proclaims: “These guys continue to make top-notch music. In this case, they’re harmonizing on an upbeat ode to the simple joys of living and loving. Wonderfully tuneful and catchy.

In the spirit of the holiday season, fans are invited to share their idea of a Pretty Good Day.
