  • Lonestar Announces New Covers EP “Iconic, Vol. 1”, Covers Fleetwood Mac's “You Make Loving Fun”

  • American country music band Lonestar, consisting of Drew Womack (lead vocals/acoustic guitar), Michael Britt (guitar), Dean Sams (keyboards) and Randy 'Keech' Rainwater (drums), has announced that their new covers EP “Iconic, Vol. 1” will be released later this spring.

    The EP comprises a 5-track, including covers of Adele, Pink, Cindy Lauper, Eurythmics, and Fleetwood Mac.
    The inspiration for the EP came during a soundcheck for Lonestar when the band frontman Drew Womack started singing Cyndi Lauper's “Time After Time”.
    The band guitarist Michael Britt explained, “I've always loved that song and the fact that he just pulled it out, we were like 'Dude, you can sing anything!' He has no limitations as a vocalist. Then somebody just said 'Hey, why don't we do an EP of female artist songs?' Somebody suggested everybody just pick their favorite and we'd go from there. It was so organic.”
  • From the EP, the band released a cover of British-American rock band Fleetwood Mac's “You Make Loving Fun” as the first single on March 1, 2024.
    The song is accompanied by the Bryson Sams-directed music video.
    The original version of the song was released by Fleetwood Mac from their eleventh studio album “Rumours” in 1977.
    The track was written and sung by the late Christine McVie.
    Fleetwood Mac's Mick Fleetwood raved about this cover in a statement, summing up its reverent salute to the late McVie.
    He said, “Always a compliment to hear…our songs! Christine will be smiling!”
    Drew Womack said of the song, “We changed the arrangement to make it more of a country song. It flows really nicely as a country rock song.”

  • The band keyboardist Dean Sams said, “There were certain parts where we were like, 'Alright we have to stay true to this section of the song because people will expect that.' So, there were certain parts that we tried to remain true to the original, but always keeping in mind we're Lonestar and if we were going to do it exactly like the original artist, would there really be a point in doing it?”
    He continued, “'You Make Loving Fun' is such an iconic song from an iconic band and Christine McVie, she wrote the thing and obviously sang it as well. With her passing, I feel like this put even more pressure on us to make this song great. I just love our version of it! It doesn't have all that keyboard stuff that's going on from the original, it's very Lonestar-ified, if that's even a word. It sounds really cool, but still sounds modern and like Lonestar.”
