KNUE Throwback Video — Restless Heart
One of the hottest country music groups to come out of the 1980’s has got to be Restless Heart –their harmonies are like butter and their music has wowed audiences around the world. This year Restless Heart is celebrating over 25 years of entertaining fans.
Restless Heart came together in late 1983 just a couple of years before I started my radio career. The famous producer and writer, Tim Dubois, saw the guys talents and before you know it – Restless Heart signed a contract with RCA Records in 1984!
I instantly fell in love with the groups vocal style and when KNUE was fortunate enough to present the group at the Oil Palace in Tyler in the early ‘9o’s – I was thrilled!
With their outstanding 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, the group brought a new, contemporary sound to Nashville. It’s a Country sound with a touch of pop — which I feel strongly influences popular country acts of today like Brad Paisley, Rascal Flatts and Little Big Town.
Restless Heart has very special place in my heart — Their music was apart of my life when I met my husband.
You can bet you’ll hear Restless Heart and more of your favorite country from the ’80’s and ’90’s on the KNUE Gold Rush with John Moore, Saturday mornings from 8am-10am on KNUE.
