Eastern Iowa Restaurant/Bar to Welcome Five National Country Acts
It's going to be a very busy summer and fall at Wild Hogs Saloon and Eatery in Walford. After Tracy Byrd performed there on Father's Day, the popular restaurant and bar is set to welcome five more national country acts over a three month period beginning in early August.
Friday, September 6 brings Steve Wariner. He charted 50 songs, hit the Top 10 more than 25 times, and had 11 number one songs in the 1980s and early '90s. Steve's written numerous hits for other artists, including number one songs for both Garth Brooks and Clint Black. He's also a fantastic guitar player who has won three Grammy Awards for Best Country Instrumental. I believe Steve Wariner belongs in the Country Music Hall of Fame.
Saturday, November 2, Wade Hayes comes to Walford. The Oklahoma native's biggest hits include his debut #1 song 'Old Enough to Know Better' and 'On a Good Night.' Diagnosed with Stage IV cancer in 2011, Wade has been in remission for seven years!
And Friday, November 8 is one of my absolute favorites, Restless Heart. 35 years after the band was formed, all five original members of the group are touring together today. One of the few country bands to also enjoy crossover success, they reached number one six times and had more than 25 chart singles beginning in the mid-1980s. Picking a favorite from Restless Heart is impossible for me. 'Why Does It Have to Be Wrong or Right,' 'The Bluest Eyes in Texas,' 'Big Dreams in a Small Town,' and 'Wheels' would all be in the running, though.
You can get tickets for all of the shows HERE. The rest of the year is gonna be fun in Walford.
