Lonestar Plans National Circuit

Lonestar will undertake a fall tour of more than 30 cities, with help from new country stars Jamie O’Neal and Blake Shelton. No dates or cities have been announced, but a publicist for the group says the tour will run October to December. O’Neal, the Academy of Country Music’s reigning best new female artist, will appear on all dates. Shelton, whose single “Austin” has topped the country charts, will join the tour in November. Earlier this year, Lonestar were part of the George Strait Country Music Festival. The group’s latest album, I’m Already There, debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s country album chart. The group’s new single is “With Me.” 08/14/01
