Steve Wariner

(Gibson) Country singer and guitar icon, Steve Wariner, was honored for his twenty years as a member of the Grand Ole Opry on May 14. Opry Vice President Pete Fisher presented Wariner with a plaque to commemorate the event during his show at the legendary establishment.

"Wow! I can't believe I've been an Opry member for 20 years," Wariner said of the honor. "It's still one of the greatest honors of my career. I remember my first time on the Opry in 1973 as a member of Dottie West's band back at the Ryman as if it was just yesterday.

"It seemed like an impossible dream back then that I would be asked to join…but it happened a few years later! Dreams can come true. Glad to call the Grand Ole Opry my home!"

Wariner is currently not on tour, but he does have a couple of gigs scheduled. On June 11 he'll be playing the City Winery in Nashville and on August 19 he'll be at Floore's Country Store in Helotes, TX. The show at the City Winery, which is part of CMA Music Festival, will be filmed. Read more here.
