Biography

Country star Doug Stone made his name as a baritone balladeer, even though he’s also adept at up-tempo country tunes.
Stone was born and raised in Atlanta, GA, and learned guitar at the age of five from his mother, also a country singer. As a teenager, he performed in skating rinks in his hometown and later moved on to playing area bars while working long hours as a mechanic during the day.

It took Stone several years to be “found” by his soon-to-be manager who helped him finally land a record deal with Epic. His self-titled debut was released in 1990 and broke him in a big way with the despairing lead single “I’d Be Better Off (In a Pine Box),” which shot into the country Top Five. Stone landed three more Top Ten hits from the album, including “Fourteen Minutes Old,” “These Lips Don’t Know How to Say Goodbye,” and his first number one, “In a Different Light.”
He quickly completed a follow-up album, I Thought It Was You, for release in 1991, which solidified his persona as country music’s suave song stylist and became his second straight million-seller on the strength of three Top Five hits: the title track, “Come In Out of the Pain,” and a second number one in “A Jukebox With a Country Song.”
Stone’s third album, 1992’s From the Heart, spun off one hit after another: “Warning Labels” and “Made for Lovin’ You” went Top Ten, while “Too Busy Being in Love” and “Why Didn’t I Think of That” topped the charts.

    He has recorded some great Country Music. Always worth listening to... beautiful voice, perfect for slower songs. Also suited to uptempo songs check out "addicted to the dollar" and "working end of a hoe". Wish he had released more albums, but I guess his health problems are the reason there is not more material available. If you like hardcore country you should check out Doug Stone.
