Few artists can not only survive the test of time, but flourish with the passing of years. For most, longevity is an elusive goal only attained by such as icons as George Jones, Ray Price or Hank Williams-great singers with extraordinary songs. Then there's that intangible ingredient called talent, that element of delivery combined with magic that actually endures what can be a fickle public. Steve Wariner is one of those rare gems. Since his arrival on the country music scene in the late '70s, Wariner's blend of pop flavored country along with his velvety vocals, has earned him a consistency enjoyed only by few, while amassing hit upon hit. Although country purists tend to criticize such non-traditional music, Wariner's more contemporary offerings arguably helped broaden country's listening audience in the '80s.
This package--Steve Wariner--Ultimate Collection--spans 11 years, from his first No.1 record, "All Roads Lead to You," until the early '90s when he experienced a shift in direction and sales before his more recent resurgence of popularity. The collection encompasses a body of work that displays Wariner's growth as a total artist-vocally, instrumentally and as a songwriter-containing 21 hits, an amazing number for any artist, but particularly one who fell into singing by accident.
