Legendary country music singer/songwriter/guitarist Steve Wariner will perform at The Cutting Room in New York City on Friday, Sept. 12. Showtime is 7:30 PM (doors open at 6:30 PM). Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 day of show, and can be purchased at www.thecuttingroomnyc.com. The Cutting Room is at 44 E. 32nd Street.
This will be Wariner’s first solo show in New York City in more than a decade. During this intimate concert, he will perform a selection of his best-loved hits, songs he’s written for other artists, tunes from his current album It Ain’t All Bad, and some new compositions.
The acclaimed performer has won four GRAMMY Awards, four CMA Awards, one ACM Award, and 15 BMI Million-Air Awards for writing songs that have been played on the radio more than one million times. Wariner has achieved 14 No. 1 hits, more than 30 Top Ten hits, and membership in the Grand Ole Opry.
Discovered by Dottie West while he was still a high school senior at age 17, Wariner soon moved from Indiana to Nashville to be her bass guitarist. After several years, Wariner became the bass guitarist for his hero, Chet Atkins. The two guitarists became close friends, and Atkins later signed Wariner to his first artist deal at RCA Records. Through the years, he dominated country radio with hit songs such as “The Weekend,” “I Got Dreams,” “Lynda,” “Holes in the Floor of Heaven,” “I’m Already Taken,” “Leave Him Out of This,” “Life’s Highway,” “Two Teardrops,” “Kansas City Lights,” “Small Town Girl,” “Where Did I Go Wrong,” “The Domino Theory,” “I Should Be With You,” “Lonely Women Make Good Lovers,” “Tips of My Fingers,” and more. For several years on a weekly basis, millions of television viewers heard his vocals on the theme song to the hit television series “Who’s The Boss.” He also became an in-demand songwriter, with artists including Garth Brooks (“Longneck Bottle”), Clint Black (“Nothin’ But the Taillights”), Keith Urban (“Where the Blacktop Ends”), and Bryan White (“One Small Miracle”) among those who achieved huge success with his songs. Recently Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, the Del McCoury Band, Peter Tork (of The Monkees), and Don Williams have recorded his songs for their current projects.
Wariner lives outside of Nashville, but he and his wife have a home in New York City where they stay frequently. In July of last year, he performed alongside several other singer/songwriters as part of the “CMA Songwriter Series” at Joe’s Pub for two sold-out nights. He accepted an invitation to speak about the art of songwriting with a group of students at New York University’s (NYU) Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music in December 2013. In his spare time, Wariner is a painter and recently had a showing of his work at the Tennessee State Museum.
