Columbus, Indiana
Wade and the musicians he brought from Nashville joined up with Eddie Gossien, a long-time friend and  a former steel guitar player for Wade's earlier band, Wheel Hoss. A beautiful night in a comfortable outdoor setting - though the wind did pick up a bit. At one point Wade's hat, caught by a gust went cart-wheeling across the stage.

Wade's set included old and new tunes that he'd recorded.  In the middle of the set he and Craig Delphia (on fiddle) did an acoustic version of What I Meant to Say. They followed with a  spirited duo of Orange Blossom Special. There was an enthusiastic meet and greet following the show, with several of the fans declaring how long they'd wanted to see Wade in a live show.

It was good to see fans from Indiana and Michigan that we hadn't seen in awhile. One of the experiences I love about going to a show is getting together with friends, whether we travel together or meet at the show.

Opry Country Classic.

The Ryman auditorium is the perfect setting for an Opry Country Classics Show. This show pays homage to the many historic country music memories that have been made at the Ryman. The artists and the audience alike sense the special aura of the former tabernacle. Wade opened the show with Waylon's Are You Sure Hank Done it This Way and Gary Stewart's She's Actin' Single, I'm Drinkin' Doubles. Wade commented to the audience that one of the entertainers for the evening, Johnny Lee, had given him his first music job when he arrived in Nashville. He related how good Johnny had been to him and asked the audience to be sure and give him lots of good applause. Later, when Johnny had finished the first song of his set, Wade came back on stage with his guitar in hand. Johnny called to him, "Are you looking for another job, boy?" That was audience pleasing and to add to that pleasure Wade stayed on stage and played guitar and sang harmony with Johnny for the rest of Johnny's set. They finished with Wade's favorite Johnny Lee song, Cherokee Fiddle. Wade returned later for a third song, Lefty Frizzell's That's the Way Love Goes.
