This streak began in 1996 with the band’s second single, the rock-edged “No Information,” which describes a person left bereft (and confused) when his girlfriend all of the sudden disappears, and the next 12 months’s tender “Come Cryin’ to Me” and “All the pieces’s Modified.” The band’s quadruple-platinum 1999 album Lonely Grill spawned 4 No. 1 hits (together with the beloved world smash “Amazed”) and established Lonestar as music’s preeminent pop-country band—a standing they’d preserve by the 2000s and past, due to songs stuffed with vitality and artistic lyrics (“What About Now”) and (“Mr. Mother”), together with heartfelt messages and hovering melodies (“I’m Already There”).

I believe individuals need to sing alongside—the vocal melody is what individuals actually are latching onto nearly all of time.

We saved a lot of the songs fairly near the originals, however with simply extra up to date, trendy sounds.”
The adjustments to “Amazed,” in the meantime, replicate the ability ballad’s standing as an exclamation mark throughout live shows.
“Because it’s normally the largest half or finale of the present, we’ve made it just a little bit extra bombastic,” Britt says. “We didn’t need to change it a lot as simply to make it extra epic.”
