Steve Wariner

Nashville Scene Critic's Pick …

After beginning his career as bassist for such country music legends as Dottie West and Bob Luman, Steve Wariner has gone on to make his mark as a songwriter, singer and guitarist. In the late ’70s, he played bass for Chet Atkins, who signed Wariner to RCA Records. The Indiana native hit the charts in the ’80s with “All Roads Lead to You” and “Lonely Women Make Good Lovers,” and released the 1996 instrumental album No More Mr. Nice Guy, which featured a brace of high-powered pickers that included Atkins and Larry Carlton. I like the super-wistful, Glen Campbell-influenced Wariner of 1981’s “All Roads Lead to You” — the song skillfully expands upon the geographic dislocation and romantic yearnings of Campbell’s great ’60s singles. Wariner has released a new full-length, It Ain’t All Bad, which finds him singing and playing with his usual panache.
