Description

June 9, 2012 - Steve Wariner has recorded dozens of hits, including the chart toppers “Holes In The Floor of Heaven,” “Two Teardrops,” “ I'm Already Taken,” “Some Fools Never Learn,” and “The Weekend.” He has earned Grammy and CMA awards for his singing, songwriting, instrumental work, and diverse musical collaborations. Chet Atkins, an inspiration and advocate for Wariner, signed him to RCA, produced his first recording session, and dubbed him a c.g.p. (Certified Guitar Player)—one of only five guitarists to receive this distinction. In 2009, Wariner released the album c.g.p., My Tribute to Chet Atkins. His latest recording, Guitar Laboratory, explores diverse tones and textures across several musical genres.

Offered as part of the special exhibition Chet Atkins: Certified Guitar Player, Made Possible Through the Generous Support of the Gretsch Company.
