Notes with Wade on the road
Country Music Cruise on The Eurodam - Holland America Lines - to the Caribbean
Wade joined the cruise on Wednesday in San Juan Puerto Rico. He was immediately in demand. He first stepped on stage at the afterhours jam that evening that was hosted by the Warren Brothers. He was extremely well received. Thursday was his show with the full band. We attended sound check and the show which played late in the evening to a packed house in the lounge they called the Opry Guitar Bar. Friday morning, Wade was one of several artists who performed in the tribute for George Jones held on the main stage. He performed 2 songs, Bartenders Blues and The King (Elvis) is Gone and You Are, Too. He said the latter song, with it's refrain of "Yabba, Dabba, Do" was a wade on cruisefavorite in the Saturday night front porch jams he and his cousin had when they were teen-agers.
Friday night was the last after hours jam. Wade was the featured artist.  He did a 10 song set before inviting other artists to the stage. It's always amazing to see Wade on stage with band members and artists that he's never or rarely performed with and join in with the songs they choose. This night included Andy Griggs, Anita Cochran, Paul Gregg and Larry Stewart (Restless Heart), Ty Herndon, Chuck Mead, Lee Roy (The Roys). Some of the impressive songs they performed: Silver Wings, I Don't Think Hank Done it This Way, Good Hearted Woman, Honky Tonkin' , You Ain't Woman Enough, Crazy, Rambling Fever. Saturday afternoon we're back in the Opry Guitar Bar. Dane Butcher is the host for an event titled, "Guitar Seminar with Wade Hayes & Bryan White." A very interesting combination interview and performance. Dane asked about their influences and how they got into the music business. Wade stated, "It (music) picked me; I didn't have a choice." He admitted he still has stage fright before a show, especially at the Ryman. He said he likes to see an old friend in the audience whereever he plays. Wade is booked for the cruise again next year.

Wade played the Opry on February 28.
If you missed it you can hear his part (8 minutes) on the Opry at this link.

In their review - "With apologies to Yogi Berra, it’s time to rediscover Wade Hayes for the first time. Place To Turn Around is everything that is great about indie records. Imagine hanging around your favorite honkytonk bar and hearing an artist singing great neo-traditional country music with acoustic guitars, fiddle and steel and buying an album at the side of the stage following the performance. And then imagine that the artist you were listening wasn’t some unknown band, but a road-tested Nashville songwriter and musician with many hits under his belt. That is the experience of listening to Wade Hayes brand new album" ..  Read More
Two cuts from the McHayes Album have been added to iTunes and Amazon.com
Wade and Mark McClurg teamed together for a short time as the duo McHayes. Their album, Lessons in Lonely,  was not released to the public. (A shame, really, there was some great music on it.) iTunes and Amazon.com have added two cuts from that project. It Doesn't Mean I Don't Love You, written by Trent Willmon, has Wade singing the lead and Mark doing the high harmony. The Wrong Kind of Right has Mark singing the lead and Wade doing the harmony.

Get the word out - use your facebook page, your twitter account, your e-mail to ask your friends to view this video. It's hard to imagine that there's anyone left in these United States who hasn't had a friend or a family member who's faced this situation. You can tell them, too, that from the beginning Wade's odds of making it were poor. Now he stands on the side of good health and is rebuilding his life and his career. Praise God!
