Restless Heart in concert at Carson Valley Inn Sept. 16



MINDEN, Nev. — Restless Heart will appear at the Carson Valley Inn on Sunday, Sept. 16, in the up-close concert setting of the Inn’s Valley Ballroom. The legendary country music group is celebrating over 25 years of flawless harmonies on hits including “When She Cries,” “Mending Fences,” “Tell Me What You Dream,” “I’ll Still Be Loving You,” “Why Does It Have to Be (Wrong or Right),” “Bluest Eyes in Texas,” “Dancy’s Dream” and more.

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, a sound with a touch of pop – the sound which so strongly influences popular country acts of today like Brad Paisley, Rascal Flatts and Little Big Town.

Gold became the standard for the group with the release of their self-titled album. Three more gold albums followed between 1986 and 1991. With an additional six albums released through the years, Restless Heart put 26 hits on the country charts with six #1 hits and nine others in the Top Ten. Cross-over success, rare in the music world, was also theirs with six songs making the adult contemporary charts, including taking the No. 1, No. 2 and No. 3 spots.

After a brief hiatus, all five original members reunited for the 2002 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 over 25 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!
