Grand Ole Opry Member
-- since 1996

Steve Wariner began his music career as a teenager, playing bass and singing in Dottie West's band at age 17.  By 1977 he had his first "singles" deal as a solo artist, thanks to Chet Atkins at RCA.

  Steve Wariner - booking information  "Chet was my first producer," says Wariner. "I was recording my first four songs and the session was crazy. It was the day after Elvis Presley died and of course, the TV networks all wanted to talk to Chet during my session. I'll never forget that day."

Steve Wariner - booking information Wariner battled for airplay alongside such country legends as Merle Haggard, Charley Pride and Conway Twitty with his debut record, and remembers that the competition for radio airplay was fierce. "I was just trying to write the best songs that I could. I was around all these country music icons and I just tried to shut up and learn how to be an artist."

By 1980 he scored his first Top Ten hit, "Your Memory." For the next decade, you couldn't read a record chart without seeing Steve Wariner's name at the top. He had moved from RCA Records to MCA, where he worked with producer Tony Brown, finding chart success with such self-penned hits as "I Should Be With You," "I Got Dreams" and "Baby I'm Yours."

Steve Wariner - booking information "I started really learning how to write during that time," Wariner says. "I got married and we had children, and I was touring a lot. I grew up really fast, I'll say that much. A lot happened in that period of time, and my songs started getting a little deeper as I started to experience more."

All that he learned as a performer, songwriter, producer and musician came together in the album "Burnin' The Roadhouse Down."

To stay on top in a field as changeable as country music, you must plan every step. Or you can do it like Wariner – he is just going where the music takes him. It's clear that he has come up with the most brilliant plan of all.
