Restless Heart have spent the past 30 years building one of the most successful
careers in country music history, placing over 25 singles on the charts with six
consecutive #1 hits. Four of their albums are certified Gold, and they have won
countless awards including the Academy of Country Music’s Top Vocal Group.
Restless Heart was formed in 1983, quickly signing a record deal with RCA the
following year. 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 which continues to influence popular country acts to this day.
Their debut self-titled album easily went gold and three more gold albums followed
between 1986 and 1991. In all, Restless Heart released 10 albums that launched 26
hits on the country charts with six #1 hits and nine more in the Top Ten including
songs "That Rock Won't Roll", "I'll Still Be Loving You", "Why Does It Have to Be
(Wrong or Right)" and “Wheels,” "The Bluest Eyes in Texas" and "A Tender Lie."
They not only became one of country music’s most popular acts, but also found
great crossover success with six songs landing the adult contemporary charts,
including “I’ll Still Be Loving You,” “When She Cries” and the #1 “Tell Me What You
All five original members reunited in 2002 for the Operation Season’s Greetings
Tour, an overseas military entertainment tour with the Air Force. They haven’t
stopped touring since, averaging more than 100 shows per year, including an
around-the-world military tour in 2007.
Today, driven by the musical force which brought them together 30 years ago
and tempered by experience, Restless Heart continues to thrill old and new fans
by doing what they do best– appreciating their audiences and having a good time
making great music.
