Steve Wariner Celebrates 23 Years of Burnin’ The Roadhouse Down

Steve Wariner is celebrating the 23rd Anniversary of his album Burnin’ The Roadhouse Down.

He reflects on what the project meant to him, “An important album for me…this was my very first Capitol album, the very first album that I produced totally by myself…other than No More Mr. Nice Guy, my guitar record. ‘Holes In The Floor Of Heaven’ was track number 2, so, and I remember doing the song ‘Burnin’ The Roadhouse Down’…Garth (Brooks) came in and played on it and sang. Really tremendous this is a big album for me.”

One of the biggest hits from Burnin’ The Roadhouse Down was “Holes In The Floor Of Heaven” — Listen to it here…

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

When you’re getting a permanent addition to you body, you want to make sure it means something, right?

Michael Ray has several tattoos, but each one has a personal connection to his life, “All my tattoos are either family based, religious based, or music based.”

He shares the story of one of his tattoos that honors his late grandmother, “So, my grandma, Penny, she passed away a couple of years ago, and I have a tattoo memory of my grandfather, and I wanted a tattoo for her. Her nickname was Penny, and I got a penny with my Grandmother’s birth year, 1942, on the date, on the inside of my arm.”

If he could change one thing about the tattoo…it would just be WHEN he got it. Turns out Michael got it on a show day, and it being on his arm, well, Michael admits “I started playing guitar that night…for the show, and it hurt like hell.”

But even with that night of pain Michael proudly says “it’s probably my favorite tattoo.”
