Doug Stone found his mark in music as a lonesome baritone balladeer,
although he was very adept at hard-up-tempo country. Doug began at age five
learning guitar from his mother an avid singer and guitarist. At age seven
he was given the opportunity, by his mother, to open for Loretta Lynn. Life
presented Doug a drastic change with the divorce of his mother and father.
Doug, as result, moved in with his dad. As his youthful years past, Doug
played at skating rinks, local bars or any money making project to help his
father make ends meet. In the daytime Doug worked as a mechanic, something
else that came to him naturally.

Doug had already past the age of 30 when a Nashville manager paired him up
with Epic, his first record label. He debuted in 1990 with the single, "I'd
Be Better Off (In a Pine Box)," the first release from his 1990 self-titled
debuted album "Doug Stone" for Epic records. This album produced a handful
of chart-topping singles. Following these songs was his first number one,
"In a Different Light". In addition, the single was nominated for a Grammy
Award for Best Country Song. Both this album and its successor, 1991's I
Thought It Was You, earned a platinum certification from The Recording
Industry Association of America for U.S. shipments of one million copies.
Two more albums for Epic, 1992's From The Heart and 1994's More Love, were
each certified gold. Stone has charted -twenty-two singles on Hot Country
Songs, with his greatest chart success coming between 1990 and 1995. In
this time span, he charted eight Number Ones including: "In a Different
Light", "A Jukebox and a Country Song", "Too Busy Being in Love", "Addicted
to a Dollar", and "Why Didn't I think of That" to name a few, plus fifteen
more Top Five singles.

In early 1992, Stone found that one of the arteries in his heart was almost
entirely blocked. He underwent quadruple bypass surgery and took time off
to recover, just as his third album, "From the Heart," was released. With a
gold certification for shipments of 500,000 copies, "From the Heart"
included two Number Ones among its four singles: "Too Busy Being in Love"
and "Why Didn't I Think of That." The other two singles were "Warning
Labels" and "Made for Lovin' You," at No. 4 and No.6 respectively. One
month later Stone released an album titled "The First Christmas."

In June 1994 Stone discovered that he was having breathing problems, which
were affecting his singing. Doctors at Vanderbilt University's medical
center failed to find any problems in his throat. A second consultation
revealed a lump in his nostril but amazingly it was not cancerous. While
Stone was undergoing treatment, his Greatest Hits, Vol.1 compilation was
released in late 1994.This album included the new song "Little Houses",
which debuted on the charts in October 1994 and peaked at No. 7 in early

Stone made his acting debut in the 1995 film "Gordy." "Gordy," a
heartwarming story featured Doug as Luke McAllister, a struggling musician.
Gordy paved the way for stone's acting career and as well featured several
of his songs. In 2011 Doug moved on to another movie role, "When the Storm
God Rides," a Thomas E. Kelly film.

Always the adventurer, in 2000 Doug suffered a broken ankle and a cracked
rib after crashing his ultra-light plane in Robertson County, TN. An
experience that would put him back in the studio recording the
self-inspired single "Caught Dead Living", based off of Doug's "larger than
life personality", and love for living life to its fullest.

In April 2012 Doug Stone hit the road again bringing this hits to venues
and fans around the country. It also inspired him to go back and pull out
all the demo sessions he had recorded over the previous 20 years and in
2014 he released the album "Doug Stone ‘The Demo's': 20 Years of Life".

Now in 2022- 32 years, 8 #1 singles, 15 top 10 singles, and over 10 Million
album sales later, the singer of timeless country hits like "A Jukebox with
a Country Song" & "In a Different Light" is still running the roads
performing to dedicated fans all across the nation. Sharing his testimony
of a close relationship with the Lord after several years of alcohol abuse,
a nearly 5 years sober Stone is at the top of his game once again. With a
new acoustic project of re-recorded hits slated for release in 2022, Doug
Stone continues to produce pure country gold.
