.. Tuesday Grand Ole Opry Pics


Wade performed at the Tuesday Opry on his birthday, April 20. This was held at the historic Ryman auditorium. I've add a gallery page to the wadehayes-woww.com web site and I've added a picture page to the woww-pic.com site. AND as a WOWW! subscriber extra, I've posted the audio of the performance. So, if you didn't get to hear it the first time, you have a second chance. And if you did hear it, we won't keep you from listening again. There will be no link to this on the web site; the link will only be in this WOWW! e-mail. Thanks to Marlene for her great help with this.

.. Alma, Arkansas .. The Alma Performing Arts Center
The 2010 Alma Spinach Festival got good marks from Alma Area Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Anita Gibson at the Chamber's monthly lunch meeting Tuesday.....

She also praised country musician Wade Hayes, who played Saturday night at the Alma Performing Arts Center in what she described as a well-attended concert.

"I think Wade was the easiest artist we've ever worked with," Gibson said. "Very professional, but yet he was very down-to-earth."


Nashville was deluged on Saturday May 1st when an all time record was set for 1 days rainfall. On Sunday, that record was broken. We received one-fourth of our average annual rainfall in 24 hours - with measures varying from 13 - 18 inches over the area. No way could anyone have anticipated this disaster. Major segments of Nashville's Music base were affected - buildings, equipment, individual homes ... Opryland Hotel will take many months to renovate. Our world-class symphony hall lost a $2.5 million organ. Our stadium - LP Field - was flooded. The Country Music Hall of Fame expects to re-open this Saturday. The Ryman was not affected. For nearly every detail, you can check out this web-site. http://www.wsmv.com/weather/23328754/detail.html

One very large warehouse where several major country artists stored their equipment - instruments, sound, trucks, buses .... was severely affected. A lot of the out of town media is now trying to focus on what the artists have lost and most of the artists would rather not have that kind of attention. For a short video of some of the impact on artists, follow this link: http://nashvillecountryclub.com/Members/index.php?action=gallery;sa=view;id=2129

Personally, I was not threatened by the water - though watching it creep (actually rush) to within 30 feet of my house wasn't one of my easiest hours. But only a quarter mile away a dear friend had the water reach the eaves of her house. A half-dozen houses on that half mile stretch were badly damaged. Please keep them in your prayers.

Wade's home was not affected by the water either, but some nearby him were.

Nashville has called its recovery effort, "Friends Helping Friends." And that is the spirit of the city. We will rebuild. There have been major telethons being put on locally by our local people (we do have some talent around)! And many people around the country have responded to them. We appreciate that very much. And for those who say Nashville is whining because it didn't get enough national media for this devastation, take another look at those blogs. The posts are predominately from people who don't live here and couldn't get the news they wanted.

I am sure there will be more news on how the CMA Music Fest will be handled. It's not cancelled, but I am sure there will be modifications. Our Friend's Fest will go on as planned.

Formerly this domain pointed to wadehayes-woww.com. Tommy Lemon, long-time friend of Wade and professional webmaster, now has an official site for Wade. He will be using the wadehayes.com domain. The two sites that I do - http://www.wadehayes-woww.com and http://woww-pics.com will continue.
