It took Steve a while to get there, even though he had played the Opry when he was just 17 years old.  
At that early age, the Indiana native was playing bass for Dottie West, who was already a member. West actually discovered Wariner when she saw him performing with a band in Indianapolis.

Steve also played the Opry with Chet Atkins who signed Wariner to his label, RCA Records, in 1976. It wasn’t until 1981, that Wariner earned his first No. 1 hit, “All Roads Lead to You” &  by the time Steve was finally inducted into the Opry, he had a string of Top 10 hits, including “The Tips of My Fingers,” “Lonely Women Make Good Lovers,” “What I Didn’t Do”, “You Can Dream of Me”, “Some Fools Never Learn,”  and “The Weekend.”

I would say Steve Wariner had certainly earned that invitation!

He has since won many awards including numerous Grammys both as a vocalist/songwriter and as an instrumentalist!

I still remember a few years back when he came to San Angelo and played Midnight Rodeo to a sold out crowd. Kellie and I had the opportunity to hang out with him. Great guy!
