Steve Wariner

When: Thu., April 5, 7 p.m., Fri., April 6, 8 p.m. and Sat., April 7, 8 p.m. 2012

An Indiana native who has taken his brand of good-natured, middle-of-the-road country to the top of the charts, Steve Wariner is one of the genre’s most engaging hitmakers.  After stints in the bands of Dottie West, Bob Luman and Chet Atkins, Wariner enjoyed a slew of chart-busting singles in the ’80s.  His 1987 full-length Greatest Hits sums up his music from that decade in fine fashion, with such classics as “Small Town Girl” and “The Weekend.” A hot picker, Wariner also released the fine 1996 full-length No More Mr. Nice Guy, which showcased his guitar skills alongside those of such notable players as Larry Carlton and Vince Gill.  Wariner is a first-rate tunesmith and an amazing picker — last year’s full-length Guitar Laboratory contains some great guitar textures, not to mention a fine version of Hank Garland and George Vaughn’s “Sugarfoot Rag.”
