Brad Paisley On The Ellen DeGeneres Show!

Brad Paisley was a virtual guest on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Tuesday (Octobber 6) and he talked to her about how the video for "No I In Beer" came to be, and how he didn't get his talent from his dad...

Nancy asked me to remember one of her favs from a while ago, Steve Wariner.  I proudly played all his songs, as there was a time he could really do no wrong. His list of accomplishments is huge, but we will hit the highlights.  He was also a gigantic favorite with young fans in the early 1980's when we needed young fans.  That was a great gift he gave us then.  He was one of the artists that helped me fall in love with Country Music!

His First Big Hit -  1980   Your Memory

 

Steve Wariner is an amazing musician, singer, writer and about everything else.  He got a break when he was a band member for the late Dottie West, which at that time was a really good gig.  Eventually he had a solo career in the 1980's that was very successful, and totally enviable.  Fans loved him, and he's another artist that seldom, if ever, released a mediocre song.  In fact, he peeled off ten number one songs in his early success, and had a bunch of great songs that didn't hit number one.  He was one of our biggest hit makers!

One Of The Best Country Songs Of The 1980's  - Smash #1  (Ronnie Milsap Passed On This Song)

 

He recorded 18 albums, and had about 50 singles.  Lynda, Some Fools Never Learn, Lonely Women Make Good Lovers, Life's Highway, these are just a few of his biggest songs.  He also recorded duets with Glen Campbell, Garth, Nicolette Larsen, Diamond Rio, and Brad Paisley. His career has been incredible. 

Kansas City Lights - Off That First Album, Country Gold

 

He was playing bass for Chet Atkins, when he released his breakout album and in 1980 (self titled) and it was a smash.  His first single, Your Memory, a big song, followed by All Roads Lead To You #1, Kansas City Lights, By Now, all did very well on the charts, and a star was born. (He left Atkins band)  That first album was loved, as it is as good a breakthrough album as you will ever hear.  Over the next decade, Wariner was on fire, as fans loved him and so did radio.

This Helped Wariner Shift Gears  - GREAT Song!

 

Steve Wariner was as played an artist as we had then. His sound was sophisticated, refined, and was just flat out great.  Wariner, in the early days was not a traditionalist, but his music was amazing.  His sound would evolve as the format did, and his music and image did as well.  Very few, if any artist did as good a job as changing as he did. He was commercially born during Urban Cowboy, and then was led into the New Traditionalists, and beyond.  What he did was remarkable, as others were stubbornly left behind.

Lynda - This Was #1 -As He Evolved With The Format

 

That was a great move on his part.  But by the end of the 1980's things cooled down some on the charts. Then a real resurgence in the late 1990's gave Wariner a different kind of success. A duet with Garth, and he turned to writing great songs for artists like Garth, Clint Black, and others.  Then he recorded the gem of his career in many fans eyes, Holes In The Floor Of Heaven in 1998 that won about every single award you can win. It is still a huge favorite with many fans, some who are not even familiar with the Wariner of the early 1980's. If that's you, you've have a real treat ahead of you if you look for his music, this article will give you a great place to start.

This Song Is A Classic - Multi-Award Winner

 

He has reinvented himself many times, and that's smart.  Writer, master musician, insanely great guitarist, singer, collaborator, ambassador, Grammy winner, awards nominee and winner, and flat out star.  Steve Wariner is a great example of being nimble in an ever changing business. And for those who are not really familiar with him, if you Google him and spend some time listening, you are about to discover a new favorite of yours I have no doubt.  I was a big fan and have a ton of respect for every ounce of incredible talent he has.

 #1 With Garth

 

Steve Wariner is a star - Period. Flat out star in Country Music!

WYNN - Rediscovering Mapleside Farms!

When I was a kid, we used to drive out to Mapleside Farms in Brunswick and get apples in a white paper bag, or maybe some cider.  In those days it was kind of way out there, and it felt like a drive to the country. Things change.

Swig 'O Cider - Fantastic!

ms cider

Now, Mapleside is still in the same place, but nothing else is.  Of course that area really built up over the years, but Mapleside is still an incredible place.  Windy and I went out there the other day and it was great!  It had been a couple years since I had been there, and there have been some changes.  But at it's heart, Mapleside is still the same. Great place, great setting and a great feeling when you're there.  You can take your family there on the weekends and have the best time this fall.  Check their website!

My First Ever Hayride!

ms ss

We took a hayride, and walked the grounds on a beautiful day. Music, sun and a slide ride, and a sip of cider too.  We did some shopping, made a memory or two and vowed we would be back sooner than later. We love places like this. Depending on when you go, and who you go with, you can have any kind of time you want to have!  We went to Szalays a few weeks ago and had a great time there too.   Then we had an ice cream and called it a day. 

Mapleside in Brunswick.  And the best part is?  They still sell apples in a white paper bag!

WYNN - Who The Heck Was Bob Gibson?

Over the weekend, Bob Gibson died at age 84.  For those of you who don't know exactly who he was, he was a pitcher for the St. Louis Cardinals in the 1960's and 1970's.  When you read about him, and take time to learn who he was, and what he did within the game, he just may be the best "overall"  player in the history of the Major Leagues.  He also without question was the most feared pitcher in MLB history.

Yes, we can talk about his stats, but that alone is too easy.  His run through the 60's and his 1968 season changed baseball forever.  In 1968, he was 22-9 and had a ERA of 1.12.  (Somehow, he lost 9 games) He was MVP and everything else that year.  And as a result of his dominance, baseball lowered the mound so hitters could have a better chance.  And it's still that low.  He is the only player I can think of that by himself, forced a geometric design change to baseball forever.  The game has been forever changed as a result.  He was a more modern day immortal of the game.

Indulge me here briefly.  251 wins, 56 shutouts, over 3,000 strikeouts, 9 straight gold gloves, 255 complete games, 13 shutouts in a single season, MVP, 2 time World Series MVP, 3,900 innings pitched and a seven game World Series win streak. 9 time All-Star, and in one World Series, he won 3 complete games in a week!  He once struck out 17 in a World Series Game! He also hit 26 home runs in his career (pitcher) and hit .303 in 1970.  He was a multiple World Series Champion, and he would pinch hit and pinch run too.  He is without any question the best Post Season starting pitcher ever. A guy like that today would demand 60 million a year. - And get it!  (His highest salary was $150,000 - highest in majors at the time)

560d932fd6460.image

He played his entire career with the Cardinals and was the face of that franchise long after he retired.  A beyond fierce competitor, and also a great man off the field.  Guys like Gibson are once every hundred year guys. Players that show up and impact the game so incredibly, the game is never the same. The list is short.  Babe Ruth, Jackie Robinson, Hank Aaron, Roberto Clemente, Bob GibsonRuth changed the game with the advent of the Home Run. Robinson, with skill, bravery, grace and complete social change, Aaron with our first look of total greatness, Clemente with his greatness and opening a huge door for Latin American players to enter the major leagues, and Gibson being so great and dominant, the game had to evolve and adjust to him. 

You may not know about Bob Gibson, and that's OK.  He like many, was a different time and a different era that is easily disposable today.  But that doesn't make him less great.  I think if I was starting a team that wanted to win a World Series, and I could take that one player to start my team, with due respect to all the great players of today, and 150 years of yesterdays, my pick would be Bob Gibson.

He was everything real greatness should, could, and can be.
