The Country Music Hall of Fame is one of my favorite spots in Nashville for good entertainment. On the morning of February 5th, the Coffee, Country and Cody morning show on WSM-AM 650 was broadcasting from the Ford Theater in the Hall of Fame. Usually, to see this show, you stand outside a glassed in booth in the Magnolia Lobby of the Gaylord Hotel. So it was extra nice that on the morning that Wade was to be there, we could sit down in some nice front row seats in a lovely theater setting.

You could say the morning was 'brisk' but it was downright cold (20s) and the wind was whipping up some long dead leaves as we came around the corner of the museum. We were there a little early - doors weren't opening for the public until 6:50, but a very kind attendant let us in around 6:30. Did I say we were the first ones there? But the 3 of us were soon joined by others. And audience members kept arriving all through the show.

Wade came in from backstage with a cup of coffee in his hand, sat on one stool, put his coffee on another and noticed that hosts Charlie Mattos and Bill Cody had Starbucks. That's the setting for his comment that he was envious. Bill and Charlie are truly supporters of Wade and his music. They commented on the show during the days earlier in the week about Wade's talent and how he was one of their favorites. And one of the last comments that Bill made on the show before Wade's last number was "What a talent!" From Bill, a Country Music Hall of Fame DJ, that's a great endorsement.

* The Best Part
* She Knows Me

Nine of the tracks are written by Wade. He's followed the custom of including an older, traditional song as he did on his other albums. Wade did most of the guitar work - both acoustic and electric.
