Larry Stewart is probably best known for his role as lead singer of the country pop band Restless Heart but during his time during the 1990's, he released four solo albums as well. Number five will be forthcoming in September and will be titled Shifting Gears.
Stewart went to social media to announce his first single will be titled “What’s That Cowgirl See In Me” and will be released this Friday.
Restless Heart first signed a recording contract with RCA Records in 1984 and with the release of their first album in 1985, the vocal style of Restless Heart became instantly identifiable – an intertwining five part harmony led by Larry Stewart, with Dave Innis on keyboards, Greg Jennings on lead guitar, Paul Gregg on bass and drummer, John Dittrich.
They brought a new, contemporary sound to Nashville, a sound with a touch of pop – the sound which so strongly influences popular country acts of today like Brad Paisley, Rascal Flatts and Little Big Town.
Gold became the standard for the group with the release of their self-titled album. Three more gold albums followed between 1986 and 1991. With an additional six albums released through the years, Restless Heart put 26 hits on the country charts with six #1 hits and nine others in the Top Ten. Cross-over success, rare in the music world, was also theirs with six songs making the adult contemporary charts, including taking the #1, #2 and #3 spots.
