Steve Wariner Unveils Cover Art And Song Lineup For “It Ain’t All Bad”

Posted by Kristina Burton on 07/18/2013
Country music singer/songwriter Steve Wariner will release his new album, It Ain’t All Bad, on Tuesday, Sept. 10. This is his first non-instrumental album in more than eight years, and he produced the album and wrote or co-wrote all 12 songs.
“I am excited to introduce these new songs to my fans,” said Wariner. “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,” he said with a laugh.  
Wariner's co-writers on this album are Al Anderson, Bill Anderson, Kent Blazy, Rick Carnes, Rockie Lynne, Rob McNelley, Karyn Rochelle, Jim Rushing, Mike Severs, Allen Shamblin and Tom Shapiro.
