Lonestar, the highly acclaimed and multi-award-winning country group, will release their impassioned rendition of “You Make Loving Fun”  the notable Fleetwood Mac hit — this Friday (March 1). The track, which was exclusively revealed via Taste of Country today, raved, “Lonestar offer up stellar Fleetwood Mac cover.”  

Along with the track, the band will be releasing an official music video the day of the single release (Friday, March 1). The video, produced and directed by TapeSlate Productions, is as loving as the song itself.

When recording another band’s iconic song, there is always that delicate balance between giving fans what they love about a song yet offering them something new. With “You Make Loving Fun,” Lonestar successfully walks that musical tightrope.

“We changed the arrangement to make it more of a country song,” vocalist Drew Womack says about Lonestar’s approach to the Fleetwood Mac song, which was written and sung by the late Christine McVie. Adding, “it flows really nicely as a country rock song.

“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,’” Dean Sams admits. “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?”
