Restless Heart is an American country music band established in 1984. The band's original members were John Dittrich (drums, background vocals), Paul Gregg (bass guitar, background vocals), Dave Innis (piano, keyboards, rhythm guitar, background vocals), Greg Jennings (lead guitar, mandolin, background vocals), and Verlon Thompson (lead vocals). Thompson was replaced with Larry Stewart shortly before Restless Heart was signed to a recording contract with RCA Records in 1984.
Throughout the 1980s and into the early 1990s, the band charted on both the country and Adult Contemporary charts. Stewart and Innis left in 1992 and 1993 respectively, with Stewart beginning a solo career on RCA. By the end of 1994, the three remaining members had disbanded. Except for a brief reunion for one album in 1998, the band remained inactive until 2003, when Dittrich, Gregg, Innis, Jennings, and Stewart all reunited. A year later, they released Still Restless, the first album since 1990 to utilize the entire five-piece lineup, on Koch Records. This album produced one more country chart single before the label's closure.
Overall, Restless Heart has released seven studio albums, two greatest hits albums, and a live album which is only available on their website. Their second through fifth albums are all certified gold by the RIAA. Twenty-six of their singles have entered the Billboard country charts, including six Number One hits. Two more singles were released only to the Adult Contemporary format, with the higher-peaking of those two being the Number One "Tell Me What You Dream", a collaboration with saxophonist Warren Hill in 1993. Their greatest crossover hit with country and pop music fans is the single "When She Cries" which was released in late 1992.

Famous quotes containing the words heart and/or restless:
“Eternall God, O thou that onely art
The sacred Fountain of eternall light,
And blessed Loadstone of my better part;
O thou my hearts desire, my souls delight,
Reflect upon my soul, and touch my heart,
And then my heart shall prize no good above thee;
And then my soul shall know thee; knowing, love thee;
And then my trembling thoughts shall never start
From thy commands, or swerve the least degree,
Or once presume to move, but as they move in thee.”
—Francis Quarles (15921644)
“Im as restless as a willow in a windstorm.”
—Oscar Hammerstein II (18951960)
