Stargazer Entertainment Announces Mark Newland’s latest release,  "Lonely Makes It Easy"

It’s been a few years since Mark first debuted The Country Lives in Me, and now, after touring the country and playing his heart out, he’s made it back into the studio to record his newest release, Lonely Makes it Easy. It’s a heartfelt collection packed with energy and raw talent. Since 2001, Mark has been focused on co-producing the album with Dennis Caplinger, and writing two of the featured songs. Quite busy, he still has found the time to select songs by Mel Besher, Harly Alan, and Larry Johnson. Choosing each song for its own merit, Mark is
quick to acknowledge the impressive resumes of these artists who have written hit songs for performers like Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, and Alabama. Mark’s co-producer Dennis Caplinger says, "I always enjoy working on Mark’s projects – this new recording features clever tunes, great production, and Mark’s dynamic vocals.

Some of the talent on this CD is quite impressive. Mark brought in multi-platinum recording artist Wayne Nelson of The Little River Band to produce the main vocals and to sing back-up on several songs. So while Mark received noteworthy attention and many awards for his vocals on his first release, you can expect
even more accolades with Wayne’s help and guidance. You’ll simply have to hear it for yourself or read more about Mark in the July/August issue of Country Music Today.

In addition to Mark announcing the release of his new CD in Country Music Today, his single, Lonely Makes It Easy is featured on the CMT Summer Sampler. “I am honored to have my title song, Lonely Makes It Easy featured on Country Music Today’s Summer Sampler CD,” said Mark. The Magazine accepted submissions for their Sampler CD and Mark’s song was selected to be featured with notable artists such as Johnny Cash, and the group Emerson Drive.

"Lonely Makes It Easy" is currently available for immediate purchase at as well as

About Mark Newland: Mark followed in his grandfather’s path as a musician and performer. By 17 he had expanded from guitar to piano, drums and bass and to writing his own songs. His origins are rock, but as he puts it, rock has attitude, country has personality. “The Country Lives In Me,” Mark’s first release, had plenty of both, earning Song of the Year and Male Vocalist of The Year by the California Country Music Association for “Girl I’ve Had It”. Mark also won the Most Promising Album of the Year in 2001 from the North American Country Music Association International (NACMAI).
