Restless Heart

Profile:
Restless Heart is an American country pop band originally formed as a studio band to record demos. The band's original members comprised John Dittrich (drums), Paul Gregg (bass guitar, vocals), Dave Innis (piano, keyboards, vocals), Greg Jennings (guitar, vocals), and Verlon Thompson (lead vocals); Thompson was replaced with Larry Stewart shortly before Restless Heart was signed to a recording contract in 1984.

Throughout the 1980s and into the 1990s, the band saw considerable crossover success in both country music and adult contemporary, with a distinctive hybrid of mainstream country and soft rock influenced by the Eagles. In that same timespan, the band charted more than fifteen Top 10 singles on the Billboard country music charts, including six Number Ones. After the band's commercial success waned in the 1990s, Stewart left in 1992 for a solo career, followed by Innis' departure not long afterward; by 1996, the three remaining members had disbanded.

Except for a brief reunion for one album in 1998, the band remained inactive until 2002, when Dittrich, Gregg, Innis, Jennings, and Stewart all reunited. Two years later, they released Still Restless, the first album since 1992 to utilize the entire five-piece lineup, on Koch Records. Although Koch's Nashville division closed by 2005, all five members continue to tour to this day.
