Austin Mahone Talks Going Country and 'A Lone Star Story'

It’s been seven years since Austin Mahone released a full-length LP. For Me + You was released in 2016 and what followed were several singles and collaborations with artists like Pitbull, Abraham Mateo, 50 Cent, and Lalo Ebratt. His newest record, A Lone Star Story, is like a homecoming for Mahone.

“I’ve been wanting to do this for a while. I wanted to put out a more consistent body of work,” shares Mahone. The ideas for the new album started three years ago before the pandemic. “I figured, you know what? Why not go and tap back into my roots and do something that’s different from what everyone else is doing right now and something more authentic to me? I felt like this was the perfect opportunity to mesh all my worlds together.”

Mahone was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas. His father’s side of the family was made up of cowboys and ranchers. The singer-songwriter gained a decent amount of traction as a teen star with singles “11:11”
