Steve Wariner’s new album, It Ain’t All Bad, is slated for September 10.
The project, to be released on his own label, SelecTone Records, is his first non-instrumental album in more than eight years. Steve produced and wrote or co-wrote all 12 tracks.
“I am excited to introduce these new songs to my fans,” Steve says. “My friends and I have written these songs over the last few years, and I’ve been saving them for this project. I’ve had fans come up and ask me when I was going to do another album with vocals on it. I didn’t mean to take an eight-year break from singing on an album. I just had such a blast making my guitar tribute to Chet Atkins, so I followed it up with another instrumental album. Now I’ve got to remind folks that I still sing.”
Co-writers on the album include Al Anderson, Bill Anderson, Kent Blazy, Rick Carnes, Rockie Lynne, Rob McNelley, Karyn Rochelle, Jim Rushing, Mike Severs, Allen Shamblin and Tom Shapiro. Steve will perform on the Grand Ole Opry on July 17 then take part in the CMA’s Songwriter Series in New York City July 23-24.
