Four-time GRAMMY Award winner Steve Wariner will be hitting the road once again in April, promoting his recently released album, It Ain’t All Bad. For an artist who has achieved 14 No. 1 hits and nearly three dozen Top Ten hits, creating a concert set-list can be quite the task. This year, Wariner is asking his fans to help choose the songs that he will perform on tour.
“I’m always hearing from my fans that they loved all the songs I performed in concert, but they wish I had performed one particular song or another,” said Wariner. “I want to give them a voice in this year’s set list, and hopefully their song will make the cut. I can’t wait to see what they choose!”
With more than 50 hit singles to his credit, Wariner has a large selection of songs for his fans to choose from. In addition, he has written or co-written several hits for other artists, including “Longneck Bottle” for Garth Brooks, “Nothin’ But the Taillights” for Clint Black, “One Small Miracle” for Bryan White, and “Where the Blacktop Ends” for Keith Urban (among others), so fans may choose to vote for those songs as well.
Voting begins today, Monday, Feb. 3, and will continue through Friday, Feb. 28, 2014. To vote, fans should visit www.SteveWariner.com, go to the “Contact” section, fill out the form, and vote for up to five songs in the body of their message. Only one vote per e-mail address will be allowed. No votes will be accepted after midnight/central time on Feb. 28. A list of Wariner’s hit singles and songwriting credits can be found on the website in the “About Steve” section.
“Of course, I’ll also perform several songs from my new CD, It Ain’t All Bad, as well as an instrumental or two,” continued Wariner. “And since Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, the Del McCoury Band, Peter Tork, and Don Williams have all recently recorded my songs, I might occasionally perform my versions of those songs as well. I am really excited to create this set-list based on what I hear from the fans!”
