Restless Heart’s Larry Stewart travels unlikely path to stardom

When a young Larry Stewart pointed his car in the direction of Nashville, Tennessee, unlike generations of country music dreamers, he sought a future on the baseball diamond. Little could he know then that his future would hold platinum and gold as he and a group of perfectly harmonized singers known as Restless Heart set aflame a new movement in country music. Stewart grew up in Paducah, Kentucky, a relatively small town where the school district and Walmart serve as two of its biggest employers.

 

.Amid the late-70s sounds of disco and R&B, Larry graduated and pursued his dreams of playing college baseball. He won a scholarship to play at Belmont University in Nashville. Once there, the hand of fate urged Larry away from the baseball field and into the music studio. After finding work as a demo singer in the early 1980s, he joined the group Restless Heart at the recommendation of the band’s keyboardist Dave Innis, with whom Larry had attended college.
