Lonestar is an American country music band founded in 1992 by Richie McDonald, John Rich, Keech Rainwater, Michael Britt and Dean Sams. The band has released nine studio albums (counting a Christmas album), four greatest hits packages, and twenty-eight singles. Lonestar's first five releases for BNA Records are all certified gold or higher by the RIAA, and their greatest hits album is certified platinum. The band's highest-certified album is 1999's Lonely Grill at 3× Platinum. A ninth album, Party Heard Around the World, was released in April 2010. This was also the first album to feature lead singer Cody Collins, who replaced McDonald in 2007.

Lonestar has also charted twenty-eight singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts. The band has also reached the lower regions of the country charts with seven Christmas songs, as well as the non-single "Somebody's Someone", an album cut from 2004's Let's Be Us Again. Nine of these twenty-eight singles have reached Number One on the Billboard country singles charts: "No News", "Come Cryin' to Me", "Amazed", "Smile", "What About Now", "Tell Her", "I'm Already There", "My Front Porch Looking In" and "Mr. Mom". "Amazed", the longest-lasting at eight weeks, was the Number One country song of 1999 according to the Billboard Year-End charts. It also became the first song to top the country singles charts and Billboard Hot 100 charts since Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers' "Islands in the Stream" in 1983. All of the band's Number One hits except "No News" have also been Top 40 hits on the Billboard Hot 100, as have "Not a Day Goes By" and "Let's Be Us Again", which respectively reached No. 3 and No. 4 on the country charts. Both "Amazed" and "I'm Already There" reached No. 2 on the Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks charts, and the former was a No. 21 on the UK Singles Chart. "Amazed", "I'm Already There", "My Front Porch Looking In" and "Mr. Mom" are all certified as gold singles by the RIAA.
