Multi-platinum country group Lonestar recently reunited for a 20th anniversary tour, and the band has announced the upcoming release of a new single, ‘The Countdown,’ as well as a new album from their classic lineup to go along with it.

The reunited group — consisting of  lead singer Richie McDonald, guitarist Michael Britt, drummer Keech Rainwater and keyboardist Dean Sams — kicked off 2012 by touring Europe on a bill with Reba McEntire and Ricky Skaggs. Lonestar also performed a sold-out, invitation-only show for their fan club at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville during the CMA Music Festival.

There, the musicians took the opportunity to debut ‘The Countdown,’ as well as another new song titled ‘Pretty Good Day’ in preparation to take their show back out on the road.

“It was a blast,” Sams says in a press release on Wednesday. “Fans were singing along to the new single by the second verse.”

McDonald adds, “What a way to start the summer. In the heat, outside, with thousands of fans singing along.  Back on the bus!”

Lonestar will release ‘The Countdown’ as an official single to radio starting July 17, and the band is slated to drop an as-yet-untitled new album in October via their self-owned 4 Star Records. The group is currently on tour through October.
