He recorded for MCA Records between 1973 and 1978, charting thirteen singles and releasing one studio album. For much of the 1970s, he was a member of Loretta Lynn's touring band, the Coal Miners. Lynn is frequently credited with discovering him.

Starr's biggest hit was a cover of David Geddes's single "The Blind Man in the Bleachers". Starr's version was a hit single in the U.S. in 1976, reaching No. 2 on the Country Singles chart and No. 58 on the Billboard Hot 100 and went to No. 1 on the country charts in Canada. The album from which it was taken, also called The Blind Man in the Bleachers, reached No. 12 on the Billboard Country Albums chart.[2]
