Steve Wariner Plays for Chet’s Fund

Multitalented Steve Wariner will perform a benefit concert for the Chet Atkins Music Education Fund.

The concert will feature songs from Steve’s upcoming album, Steve Wariner, c.g.p., My Tribute to Chet Atkins, as well as some of his greatest hits.

“I’m happy to do this concert to benefit the Chet Atkins Music Education Fund,” says Steve, who once played in Chet’s band and became close friends with the Country Music Hall of Fame guitarist.

“The education fund was so important to Chet. He believed, and so do I, that children should be introduced to music at a young age, and that learning to play music has tremendous educational and developmental benefits.”

Tickets for the concert go on sale Friday, May 22, at nowplayingnashville.com.

All proceeds from the concert and auction will benefit the Chet Atkins Music Education Fund, which Chet established in 1997 to ensure that there are always funds available to encourage promising students as they pursue musical training.
