Musical Interlude: No News (1996)

The country group Lonestar landed their first #1 hit right out of the ol' chute in 1996 with "No News", the 2nd single off their debut album.

The video illustrates the song perfectly. A suburban schlub's lamenting the fact that his girlfriend has left him. In the course of the video, the woman goes from a demure, mousy type to a hottie, drawing the attention of passengers on a bus just by sliding on a pair of thigh-high stockings. John Rich was the band's original bassist before leaving in 1998, eventually forming Big & Rich.
