18 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, but it 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 18 country artists who completely disappeared from the limelight!
18. Cole Deggs & The Lonesome
This group meets 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!
17. Cyndi Thomson
Her career began at Capitol Records in 2000 with the debut single “What I Really Meant to Say” which climbed to the No. 1 spot on the charts. What’s impressive is that this wasn’t her only charting single from that album. She also charted two other hits: “I Always Liked That Best” and “I’m Gone.” Unfortunately, after all this success she kind of fell off the musical map because she wouldn’t commit to making another album. She tried to make a comeback in 2006, but once again failed to release any new music. Finally in 2009 she released her second album (nearly a decade after the first), but it was too little too late.
