Country music legend Steve Wariner has signed with The Collective Music Group for management.

The four-time GRAMMY and CMA Award winner has earned 14 No. 1 songs and more than 30 Top Ten hits, including such classics as “Holes in the Floor of Heaven,” “Life’s Highway,” “The Weekend,” “I’m Already Taken,” “I Got Dreams,” “Small Town Girl,” “Two Teardrops,” “Some Fools Never Learn,” “Lynda,” and more. In addition to writing many of his own hits, the ACM Award winner has composed songs for Clint Black (“Nothin’ But the Taillights”), Garth Brooks (“Longneck Bottle”), Bryan White (“One Small Miracle”), and Keith Urban (“Where the Blacktop Ends”), as well as artists such as Country Music Hall of Fame members Alabama, Kenny Rogers, The Statler Brothers, Conway Twitty, and Don Williams; pop music icon Peter Tork (of The Monkees); R&B singer Ruben Studdard; bluegrass music’s beloved Del McCoury Band, and many more. Revered for his guitar talent, the Grand Ole Opry member was given the rare status of C.G.P. (Certified Guitar Player) by his mentor Chet Atkins. Recently, he played steel guitar with iconic metal band Megadeth for their upcoming album due out in 2016. Wariner’s current album is It Ain’t All Bad.
