10 Country Stars Who Disappeared From The Limelight
The music industry is a tough business. It takes a lot for an artist to not only make it in the music industry, but also survive enough to have a long lasting career. Fame can come pretty quickly in country music, but it can also fades just as fast. Some artists climb all the way to the top only to fall right to the bottom, and although many leave on their own accord, there are plenty who are forced out. Here’s a look at 10 country artists who completely disappeared from the limelight!
10. Cole Deggs & The Lonesome
This group is the definition of a ‘one hit wonder.’ Cole Deggs & The Lonesome only had one major hit “I Got More” which was released in 2007. The song peaked at No. 25 on the charts, which wasn’t bad for a break-out band, but when they released their second single it barely made an impact. They were immediately dropped from their label and haven’t been heard from since!
9. Charly McClain
Charly McClain was a big country star in the ’80s after she released her first top 10 hit, “That’s What You Do to Me,” in 1978. She then landed her first No. 1 single in 1981, “Who’s Cheatin’ Who,” which instantly shot her into stardom. She had a slew of other hits throughout the ’80s like “Sleeping With the Radio On,” and “Radio Heart,” and even dived into some acting, but her success began to subside in the late ’80s. She stopped making music after her last album in 1989 and retired from showbiz in the early ’90s to spend more time with her family.
