Restless Heart

~ Group


Restless Heart is an American country music band established in 1984. The band's original members were Verlon Thompson (lead vocals), John Dittrich (drums, background vocals), Paul Gregg (bass guitar, background vocals), Dave Innis (piano, keyboards, rhythm guitar, background vocals), and Greg Jennings (lead guitar, mandolin, background vocals), although Larry Stewart quickly replaced Thompson on lead vocals before the group signed with RCA Records Nashville.

Between 1985 and 1992, the band released four studio albums (Restless Heart, Wheels, Big Dreams in a Small Town, and Fast Movin' Train) and a greatest hits album, The Best of Restless Heart. Stewart departed in 1992 for a solo career, with Dittrich, Innis, and Gregg alternating as lead vocalists on the next album, Big Iron Horses, and Innis left a year before the band's last RCA album, Matters of the Heart. After the band broke up in 1994, Jennings joined Vince Gill's road band, and Dittrich briefly became a member of The Buffalo Club. All members except Innis reunited briefly in 1998 for three new tracks on a Greatest Hits package in 1998. The lineup of Dittrich, Gregg, Innis, Jennings, and Stewart officially reunited to record Still Restless, and this lineup has remained ever since.

Overall, Restless Heart has released seven studio albums, two greatest hits albums, and a live album which is only available on their website. Their second through fifth albums are all certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). 26 of their singles have entered the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, including six that reached No. 1. Four of their country releases also crossed over to the Adult Contemporary chart, with two of those ("I'll Still Be Loving You" in 1986 and "When She Cries" in 1992) also reaching Top 40 on the Billboard Hot 100. The band also had a No. 1 on Adult Contemporary in 1993 with "Tell Me What You Dream", a collaboration with smooth jazz saxophonist Warren Hill.
