Restless Heart performs its numerous Top Ten hits on Nov. 12
CLAREMORE, Okla. – Twenty five years after becoming one of country radio’s biggest hit makers, Restless Heart is celebrating its anniversary with a nationwide tour that includes a stop at Cherokee Casino Will Rogers Downs on Nov. 12.
Famous for such charted No. 1 hits as “The Bluest Eyes in Texas” and “Why Does It Have To Be (Wrong or Right),” Restless Heart will perform a free concert at 9 p.m. at Dog Iron Saloon.
“Restless Heart is currently touring across the country, from California to West Virginia to Nevada. These guys are a radio favorite and in popular demand, and we’re thrilled to have them perform for our guests at Will Rogers Downs,” said David Stewart, CEO of Cherokee Nation Entertainment, which operates Cherokee Casinos and Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa.
The members of Restless Heart were chosen in 1983 by legendary writer and producer Tim Dubois to create a country sound that was on the verge of pop music. The band put together a demo co-produced and engineered by Oklahoman Scott Hendricks (who later produced such artists as Faith Hill and Brooks & Dunn) that quickly landed them a recording contract with RCA Records. The band’s 1985 self-titled debut album earned them three Top Ten hits – “I Want Everyone to Cry,” “(Back to The) Heartbreak Kid” and “Til I Loved You” - and created a foundation for success that followed the band into the early 2000s.
Restless Heart’s second album, “Wheels,” is considered its breakthrough album. It generated four consecutive No. 1 country hits: the self-tiled track, “That Rock Won't Roll,” “I'll Still Be Loving You” and “Why Does It Have to Be (Wrong or Right).” The latter two were also hits on the Adult Contemporary charts, including a No. 3 spot with “I’ll Still Be Loving You.”
Restless Heart released four Gold records from 1986 – 1992, 26 charted country hits from 1985 – 2004, including 15 Top Ten hits and six No. 1’s. Six singles crossed over to the adult contemporary charts, including the 1993 single “Tell Me What You Dream” at No. 1 and 1992’s “When She Cries” at No. 2.
Other hits include “A Tender Lie,” “Big Dreams in a Small Town” and “Dancy’s Dream,” among many more.
Restless Heart earned aRadio & Records Country Group of the Year and Billboard Country Group of the Year award in 1987, anotherRadio & Records Country Group of the Year award in 1988 andanAcademy of Country Music award for Vocal Group of the Yearin 1990.
