    What an influence on country music Wynn has been, remaining dedicated
    to the true Country. His hits as well as the others he does have had a
    lasting impact on the progression of Country music and will continue on
    for the forseeable future with young artists. Thanks for the greatness

    I grew up with Wynn Stewart as a Colorado, Texas, Arizona
    farm/ranch kid. He is still one of my very favorites and I
    am glad to see Rodney Crowell keep the flame alive.
    Wynn Stewart definitely rightfully belongs in the Country Music Hall
    of Fame.

    WREN: I AM A MUSICIAN WHO LOVED YOUR DAD'S MUSIC. EVEN NOW THAT I'M NO
    LONGER PLAYING IN CLUBS, I SIT AROUND THE CAMPFIRE AND THE FIRST SONG
    THAT COMES TO MIND IS "WISHFULL THINKING". I MET YOUR DAD YEARS AGO IN
    A CLUB CALLED JOHNNY'S JOINT IN SEBASTOPOL, CALIFORNIA. SINCE 1969,
    I'VE BEEN IN ALASKA, BUT EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE I'LL GET OUT THE 33 1/3
    ALBUM AND PLAY SOME OF MY FAVORITES LIKE "IN THE ARMS OF LOVE", "SING A
    SAD SONG", ETC. I THINK WYNN STEWART IS ONE OF THE ALL TIME BEST PURE
    COUNTRY SINGERS AND I SURE MISS HIM, AND HIS UNIQUE STYLE OF SINGING.

    I grew up drumming to my dad singing all of Wynn Stewarts songs. Found
    the sight because Dad was looking to find where he could get all of
    Wynn's Songs! Thanks for the site, it makes my Dad HAPPY, and that's
    what counts. Hope to hear soon as to the release date so I can get him
    the whole set.

    I grew up in So. California and recall my two older sisters going to
    George's Round-up in Long Beach. My sister was such of fan of Wynns'
    that she named her son after him. I grew up listening to him. This was
    a real treat to find this site.
     
    Bill Goff   27/Feb/2000:18:28:02

    hi wren, god bless you. I love the old country music. keep up the great
    work...

    Wynn Stewart definitely belongs in the Country Music Hall of Fame....
    as does so many other outstanding artists (Faron Young, Dottie West,
    Jim Ed Brown, the Statler Brothers and countless others come to mind).

    Two very good friends of mine that I work with at KFDI AM in Wichita,
    Kansas (Johnny Western and Dugg Collins) are of the same opinion.
    Letter after letter has been sent to the CMA; I don't know what it
    takes for a person to be inducted that truly DESERVES TO BE
    INDUCTED!!!!!

    Conway Twitty was inducted posthumously, Tammy Wynette was inducted
    posthumously. Wynn Stewart will eventually be inducted....
    posthumously. It would sure be nice if these people could have been
    alive to savor the fruits of their labors.

    PLEASE CMA PEOPLE..... START DOING YOUR JOB AND GETTING THE PEOPLE IN
    THERE WHO DESERVE TO BE THERE!!!!
     
    Danny Holiday   27/Feb/2000:01:09:54
    As a kid growing up, I remember the summer of 1959 and the song "Above
    And Beyond" It was great to be able to hear the song on this website.
    I'm sure that you know about Carl Perkin's conversation concerning your
    Father on the Million Dollar Quartet album.
    Thanks for the effort with this website.
    Keep Rockin'

    Well,hi,Wren...Your dad would sure be proud of what you've done here!
    All of us are. I'm originally out of the Phoenix area (Tempe)and was
    introduced to your father by my good friend Dale Noe,who I realize you
    know,wrote Wynn's biggest hit "It's such a pretty world today".I'll
    give you a little trivia about that song.I asked Dale once how he came
    about writing that tune and he told me that he and his wife had a tiff
    and had been separated for awhile.But when she came back to him,it made
    him so happy that he wrote the song the next day.But,to the point.I met
    him in the late "70"s when he had "Wynn Stewart's Country World"
    there,and as I was into songwriting at the time,I really enjoyed
    sharing some of the "guitar pulls" we had.Your dad was,to put it in
    plain old country,was just damned good people.He should have been a
    hall of famer a long time ago.You're very blessed to have a dad you can
    be so proud of. Sincerely.....Buz Ellingsworth.....

    I am a fan of the old time country music I grew up with. I am looking
    for songs I can download into my computer. As I love to listen to them
    as I work at home.

    Your dad wrote some of the best songs I grew up with...God Bless Him..
     
    David Ferrell Victory Express Band 13/Feb/2000:13:51:09
    I am a big fan of Wynn Stewart. My favorites have to be "something
    Pretty" and "It's Such A Pretty World Today".
    Those songs stick out in my mind as two of my favorite Country
    recordings as I was growing up, and now my five year old son loves to
    listen to my old 45RPM of "It's Such A Pretty World Today/Goin Steady".
    I gave him the 45 when I found the "...Pretty World..." lp at a yard
    sale last summer. Great music. Your dad will be missed.
    God bless you and yours.
    May I ask one question? Did your dad know Jesus as his savior? and Do
    you?
     
    Patrick Henry   13/Feb/2000:06:10:40
    Wow! Wren, you sure have built up your
    web site and it really looks good.
    Still patiently waiting for for your dad's
    Collecting by Bear Records. I see more and
    more fans are filling your Guestbook.
    Yours, Always,

    I think your dad was the most under rated singer that ever lived, but
    in my book the greatest. I sing a lot of your dad's songs in my
    shows. With a doubt he should be in the Country Music Hall of Fame,
    but we both know how Nashville is. lONG LIVE THE MUSIC OF WYNN
    STEWART. Thanks again .

    I really enjoyed reading all about your Dad and your family. I still have his album "It's Such A Pretty World". I never knew what became of him. So many of the good singers are no longer with us - it's sad. There will never be any music as good as "the real country music".

    I think your dad deserves to be inducted.

    Hello Ms. Tidwell,
    It is a pleasure to meet you by e-mail. I met your dad
    in 1965 at Ft. Worth, Tx. at a club called Panther Hall. Unfortunately,
    It is no longer there. The show was hosted by The Midnight Cowboy, Bill
    Mack at WBAP Radio. I already knew Bill so it was easy to meet Wynn. All
    i can say is that he was a real nice person and a fantastic singer. He
    really could put on a show and could hold an audience in the palm of his
    hand. I am looking forward to getting this boxed set of everything that
    wynn ever did. I hope to keep in touch over the next several weeks or so
    and e-mail me when you can. Thanks!!!

    I remember well the years '49;'50 -&- '51 when the family would gather at
    Grandpa and Grandma's house on McKee St. in Huntington Park,Ca. Just
    about every Sunday; Aunts': Beulah, Bobbie, Golden, Agnes and Grandma
    would prepare a dinner of chicken, mashed potatoes, etc. All the
    Uncles': Cleo, Clyde, Woody, Doc, Bill and, my Dad, Tom would pick and
    play while Wynn sang. One of the songs he sang was "Love Sick Blues"
    I'll never forget that one. I will always remember those wonderful
    times we had as children.

    Wren, please keep up the Good work and I too am looking forward to Wynn
    being nominated into the Hall of Fame, "HE DESERVES IT".

    Wren,
    Nice job! I did not realize what a popular guy your dad was. I
    liked the jukebox, and will be looking forward for the box set to come
    out. I sent my dad a referral from this site. I can't wait to hear
    what he thinks of it. Conratulations.

    Christopher.

    I read all the guest that wrote in messages, and noticed that you got
    everything from praises to your father to "Are you married?". Not bad.

    Country Music" webring.

    Bill Baldridge   03/Feb/2000:13:29:34
    Just an old country DJ when it was really country.
    Used to love Wynn's songs, and played them all the time.
    I surely appreciate this website.
    Keep Wynn Stewart's name in front as much as possible.
    Many of the so called "Country" artists of today could learn a lot from
    his type of music.
     
    Rick Ralston   03/Feb/2000:13:01:24
    I knew Wynn in his La Puente/City of Industry days, when he and Bobby
    George and Vern Stovall hubg out and jammed together at the Blue Room
    and several other clubs in that area. I was tickled to death to run
    across the url for his website in the "Country Music Classics"
    newsletter this morning - I will be checking out the whole website in
    the days to come - THANKS!

    I am glad to finally find the Wynn Stewart website !!! I think Wynn is one of the Best Country Artist of all times !!! But did not get the proper recognition he so Strongly Desirved !!! I have played music all of my life, and I never heard a bad song that Wynn ever recorded !!! When the crowd wasn't responding you could play Playboy and the dance floor would fill up !!! I met Wynn in the 60's but never got to know him,but this Man (Was GREAT) !!! Harold Rogers

    I'm glad to see Wynn Stewart has his own webpage. He's one of the
    greatest country singers of all time, and it's a shame he's not better
    known. I hope your efforts will help him gain the recognition he
    deserved in his lifetime.

    Wynn Stewart had the greatest sound in Country Music! I have many of his records which I treasure. I had the privilege of speakng with him on two occasions; the first when I interviewed him in Kansas City about 1965 for a radio documentary I was doing on Country Music. The last time was in Phoenix the first of June 1975. I heard a radio commercial telling me Bobby Austin was appearing that night at Wynn's club on Cave Creek road (Cowboy World or maybe it was Country World). I headed over there and ate the best steak of my life while listening to Bobby and Wynn perform. They both sat at my table and we had a great conversation. Wynn was excited about a new record that was to be released that month. He was a very likable person! (Bobby Austin is also one of my favorites...Apartment #9 was tremendous!)

    Thanks for helping us remembr a great singer, great song writer, and a great man. The next time I go to Branson I will stop at Willard to pay my respects.
     
    DON ANDERSON   30/Jan/2000:14:32:50

    SOUL.THANK YOU

    What a great tribute to continue the music of one of my music
    hero's.Wynn may be gone but he left behind music that can't be
    duplicated only re_released with his great talents. I had the great
    pleasure of meeting ,jamming and working some of the same shows with
    Wynn. Wynn Hag Buck Tommy, they were Bakersfield's hey days legends. JC

    I always was a Big Buck Owens and Merle Haggard fan! But it was not
    until 1992 that i found an old vinyl whith a couple of his songs wich
    was "Wishfull Thinking", " Big City" , "Couples Only", "Falling for you"
    and made some research. And i was amazed how Merle and Buck was
    influence by his style, especially "Its such a pretty world today".
    His career sadly reminds me of Mel Streets, so much talent and they

    Beautiful and impressive job on the website! I do believe it's the
    best I've seen. Especially the Singles discography. I'm still
    discovering Wynn's great music so this will help. Thanks!

    I have been searching for a Wynn Stewart album since my fathers death in
    1982.This album I listened to growing up and was a favorite of my dads,
    I have the album but I would like to have it on compact disc because my
    fathers album is all scratched and of coarse records are pretty much
    outdated.The album is called Wynn Stewart, Its Such A Pretty World Today
    on Capitol Records the folling songs are on this album:Its Such A Pretty
    World Today.

    I was also born in Morrisville,Mo Wynn was 4 years older than I ,but I
    can remember him playing music with Dan Yarbarry(spelling). Whnn and my
    brother were about the same age. You can contact him at dls@u-n-i.net
    his name is David L. Smith. I am having a hard time finding cd`s of
    wynn could you help.

    wynn stewart one of the great country music artists of all time.
    his number one hit " its such a pretty world today " is still being
    performed by dance bands ( local ) almost nightly!!!!
    but my favorite song by wynn is the old song " you dont care what
    happens to me" the man just knock me out when i first heard his version.
    he actually seemed to put all his emotion in all the words, as, if, he
    was living it as he sang the song . i have been a country music d.j.
    since 1958, and i agree with most folks today. the new breed of country
    aint country music. in wynns day the singer did not have to wear ear
    phones just to hear what was going on or being said . the musicians had
    sense enough to know when to play back up and when to make thier licks.
    aint so today they all seem to butt heads on the bandstand and the
    music covers up what the singer is doing. long live wynn stewart,
    freddie hart, ray price, buck owens, merle haggard, and all the artist
    who toured all the fairs , and dance halls in sm

    Comparing the works of the Old Masters including anything of Wynn
    Stewart's and Johnny Paycheck's Little Darlin' Years recordings to the
    schlock by today's artists, I'm constantly reminded how utterly
    disgusting and fatuous 99% of contemporary Country Music has become. Oh
    but for the days when a country song had a fiddle, steel guitar, stand
    up bass, 3 chords and some horse sense!
     
    Clay Salisbury   14/Jan/2000:06:18:30
    I drive a pretty noisy old Dodge pickup, lots of rattles, road racket,
    sundry clanks and wind whistling. A short while back I was rolling
    alongside a semi- on the freeway trying to listen to KDJW AM1360 out
    here in Amarillo, TX one day when an incredible song came on the air.
    It was so compelling but the noise was so bad, that I actually pulled
    over to the side of the highway to listen to the song (never done that
    before!). Of course, the DJ failed to say the title of the song or the
    artist. While I could guess the title from the refrain, I'd never heard
    the voice before. I immediately called the station on my cell phone
    and found out it was Wynn Stewart (new name for me!) singing that
    terrific song "Another Day, Another Dollar." Now I'm a huge fan of his
    and go around humming as many songs of his that I know, but desperately
    need recordings! Hope the Bear Family set is available soon because my
    wife is getting sick of me butchering the songs on my own!

    Excellent site for a true legend.
    I first heard of Wynn as a child when my Dad brought home a
    compilation album that had Above -&- Beyond on it. It also had a song
    by Tourists band member Bobby Austin on it, Here Comes The Bride.
    Those 2 tunes changed me forever.
    I played guitar for Doyle Holly and Johnny Russell in the 80's,
    and got to play with Wynn on several occasions when Doyle would
    work in Texas. What a treat, beyond description.
    We rehearsed with Wynn at Doyle Holly's Music Store in Henderson-
    ville,TN a couple of times for a Texas tour. On Wednesday night,
    when we were supposed to leave for the Texas tour, we were opening
    for Conway Twitty at Music Village and were going to leave as soon
    as we finished. Doyle received a call, and was told of Wynn's death.
    The tour went on as planned, they sent Bobby Helms with us.
    I guess I was the last guitar player to pick with him.
    I cherish those memories of pickin' with Wynn and watching him work
    the microphone.
    I'm now playing Steel in my home
     
    Shamarie Morris   06/Dec/1999:05:55:05
    In 1968 my father was a DJ at a little radio station in Levelland Texas
    where he met Wynn and heard his song titled Shamarie. I was born later
    the same year and was named after that song. My father use to sing the
    song to me all the time growing up. I have been trying to find a copy
    on CD and ran across this site. My father passed away last Sept,
    running across this site has brought back fond memories. Thank You.

    Wren, I thought I would drop by and see how things were going.
    Now that the Bear release date will be in the Spring of 2000, please,
    still keep me in mind, as I am still patiently waiting. I am glad
    more fans of Wynn are filling the GuestBook. Maybe, someday there will
    be a movie about Wynn and his music. Anyways, lots of love to the
    family.

    Yours,

    I am very glad to see this page; you have done a wonderful job on it.
    I hope more folks will find it and learn just how important Wynn was in
    creating the "Bakersfield Sound." His music sounds just as fresh and
    vibrant today as it did when it was created. These folks into modern
    country owe it to themselves to hear the real deal, and Wynn Stewart
    would be a good place for them to start.
     
    Loren   22/Nov/1999:01:11:51
    Thank you for putting this on the web...I have played Wynn's music
    since "Wishful Thinking"--now that my son has pulled me out of
    retirement, I find myself playing his music again. I considered him one
    of the greats.I will be visiting this site as long as it's on. Thanks
    again....Loren
     
    Dugg Collins   18/Nov/1999:22:10:56
    I started my radio career in 1959. That same year Wynn had "Wishful
    Thinking" and I was a fan from that moment on. I have played Wynn
    Stewart on the radio for the past forty years and will continue to do
    so as long as radio lets me stay.

    Wynn and I became friends in 1966 and worked many jobs together when I
    was living in Amarillo, Texas. One of the most talented people I have
    ever been associated with. Great writer, singer, performer and loving
    human being. The last date he worked in Amarillo, we did it together.

    On the morning of July 17, 1985, Wynn called me at the radio station to
    thank me for playing his record "WAIT TILL I GET MY HANDS ON YOU." As I
    recall, it was on his label. I was reporting it to all the trades. He
    said he was planning a tour and had hopes of getting to Amarillo with
    his new band. We talked for over an hour that morning. I then left the
    station to meet my band 200 miles away for a rodeo date. When I
    arrived, the boys gave me the bad news about Wynn's deat
     
    Douglas Colosio   17/Nov/1999:06:27:10
    Man I love this! Wynn is one of my favorite singers of all time.
    I work for Merle Haggard as a sound technician and piano player. I
    have recently began singing again also. I had given up on it but Merle
    has been encouraging me to start again. I am learning to sing Wynns
    stuff and I love it! I am really into the old music now..anything that
    swings and has a good feel and melody. Needless to say, anyone who sings
    has to respect Wynns vocal style, I am learning some of his songs to put
    into my set I am working on.
    I don't know if anything will become of it but I am having a great time
    doing it. I love your dads stuff!! He was awesome!!
     
    Roger Barnett   16/Nov/1999:00:26:20
    Looking forward to Spring 2000. The Bear Family treatment will be
    appropriate for an artist of Wynn's stature.

    Hi!: Wynn did the world a great service with his fine Country tunes.
    Two songs cut through the typical sad C-&-W sound. They were:
    "It's Such a Pretty World Today" and "There's Something Pretty"
    I lov'em' both !!

    Great Page. Thank you for keeping the spirit alive and the roots of
    country planted strong. Country is not country today. People like Wynn
    made, or should I say make country music. I support him for induction
    in the Hall of Fame. He has fans out there and my father and myself
    are one of them. Thanks for opening this line of communication with the
    likes of a GREAT artist.

    Jimmy Collens steel guitar,who was Wynn's steel player.In 1974 Wynn
    showed up at my parents bar in Cortez,Colorado.They then came to the
    house,i was 16 at the time, had to go to school the next day, but got
    woke up an had to meet him. My husband met him at a show he did at Fort
    Lewis Collage in Durango Colorado in 1968.They had a bottle of whiskey
    on the table,and while Wynn was on stage, he was eyeing that bottle,
    when they took a break he came on got a drink.We've always been a big
    fan of Wynn's.I just found your site thank you so much.We are looking
    foward to Wynn's CD Box. Thank You,

    I learned to love Wynn's music from listening to the Eddie Stubbs' Show
    on WAMU-FM, the public radio station based at American University in
    Washington, D.C. Stubbs, fiddler for the famous Johnson Mountain Boys
    bluegrass band, had a two hour show every Sunday afternoon. Now it's
    played on Saturday afternoons and I don't catch it as often as I did and
    Eddie lives in Nashville now, where he can indulge his honky-tonk habit
    full bore. Wrote two unpublished novels listening to Wynn, Webb and
    other honky-tonk heroes.

    I had the great pleasure of playing steel with Wynn in 1959 at the
    Tucson Gardens! Wynn gave me the greatest compliment,that I have ever
    recieved, regarding my playing, although I had only been playing for
    1yr. at the time. I ran into Wynn -&- Dale Noe in Nashville at a Playboy
    Records Promotion at the Sheraton Inn on Broadway in 1976!I am still
    playing at age 69 and thinking back, wished that I could have worked
    with Wynn for a longer period of time! He was the Greatest singer I
    worked with! I also played with Buck Owens and Connie Smith! So You can
    see I was with some pretty heavy company! Thank You for this

    I was sitting in the auditorium at North High School in Bakersfield one
    evening about three years ago. It was a special night: Merle Haggard -&-
    The Strangers were about to perform a benefit concert for Merle's long-
    time guitar player, Roy Nichols. While waiting for the show to start,
    the sound engineer was playing a CD over the sound system. As I
    listened, I marveled at the singing and the songs...the sound was
    unmistakeably West Coast Country/Bakersfield Sound. Now, being a
    musician myself for some 20 years, I had played "Playboy" dozens of
    times with various singers. I had always thought the song was
    attributed to Buck Owens...then I heard it playing from that CD on that
    evening. I also heard lots of other wonderful songs. I walked up to the
    sound guy for Haggard at the console, and asked what CD was he playing;
    he showed me the cover. It was the "Challenge Masters" CD. Shortly
    after that (I was working for one of Buck's radio stations in
    Bakersfield), I saw a copy on Evan Bridwel

    I could hug your necks! I first met Wynn in the early 60's. It was
    somewhere in the Los Angles area, I was ten years old or there about.My
    father, (Robert "BOZO" Darnell) introduced me to Wynn. I was viewing
    Wynn's performance photos and noticed my father in the background of
    the picture 1964 (hand written at the bottom of the picture). Dad
    (BOZO) wrote or co-wrote several songs that Wynn recorded throughout
    the years. A few of these songs are; Sha Marie (1961), Down Came The
    World (co-written with Waylon Jennings), Your Steppin' Stone and others.
    My dad also was a partner of Transcon Management which signed Wynn to a
    recording contract in the mid to late 70's.
    I knew Wynn personally and considered him a dear friend. Wynn and his
    new young wife came to my house in Brownfield,Tx. Wynn played a show at
    the high school earlier that night, he was fabulous! After the show I
    showed him where the bootleger lived. We made several trips to his
    place that night. Wynn took his wife to a local
     
    Jim Chandler 11/Oct/1999:05:33:22
    I met Wynn in 1963 at the Never Again Club in Pomona, California and had
    more than a few brews with him. He was jamming with the house band,
    which was fronted by Vern Stovall at the time; guitarist Phil Baugh, who
    went on the bigger things, was a member of that aggregation. Wynn
    Stewart was undoubtly one of the finest singers of his time, or any
    other. That little guy could belt 'em out! And he could drink a lot of
    beer as well.

    I love the Wynn Stewart home page. I linked to the page off of Dale
    Watson's Home Page and am happy I did. I love Wynn's music even though I
    only own one of his recordings. Ironically, I bought the album in 1985
    or 86 in Nashville at Ernest Tubb's Record Shop on Broadway and never
    imagined he had just died or was about to die when I purchased the
    album. I thought he had been dead. However, I was only 15 or 16 at that
    time. Oh, by the way that album I have is "The Songs Of Wynn Stewart"
    on the Stetson Reissue. It's pretty worn so I can't wait for the box set
    from Bear Family Records. Wynn was great and very underrated. I possibly
    might be the youngest Wynn fan out there at 29, but I hope not because
    he was definitely one of the pioneers.
    Sincerely,
    Michael Dupuy

    Please contact me. I would love to hear from you and see how everything has been.

    I wish I could remember ever meeting you or or your sister, but I am afraid I was very young and don't remember. I would love to get in touch.

    Wynn Stewart, what a GREAT Country Singer/Songwriter. Today's Country
    Music doesn't possess 10% of the talent that this single man had. The
    World of Country Music isn't the same -&- won't be until another man or
    woman with Wynn's skills shows up...

    I grew up with Winn Stewart music. On Saturdays I would go to the
    downtown music store and listen to as many of the records as they had.
    I was married to a country music singer who learned every Winn Stewart
    song he could find. It was in the late 60s when we both had the
    privilege of meeting Winn when he played at a nightclub in Austin,
    Texas called the Skyline Club.

    Winn had the true country music sound and never changed. His music is
    what country music has always been about.
     
    James Sardone   13/Sep/1999:21:19:23

    listen to that range not many country singers had that and most of the
    fakes today would kill to have it.PUT SIMPLY THIS MAN BELONGS IN THE
    COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME AND I SUPPORT YOUR EFFORT TO GET HIM THERE.

    Enjoyed surfing through the Wynn Stewart web site. Wynn was a fine
    country artist and I believe he should be enducted into the Country
    Music Hall of Fame. We are looking forward to his box set of cd's.
    Keep up the good work on the website.

    I was a country dj 29 years..winston salem,n.c. Mount AiryN.C. Pulaski
    Virginia 18 years WPUV and wsls in Rke.Va. Country Music was and is my
    life. I played more Wynn Stewart songs than any other artist..Sad to
    learn he has left our world for a better place but his music will
    always be with us here. He was truly a trend setter then and will
    always be as long as people want to hear a true country song performed
    from the heart.Wynn truly should be in the Hall Of Fame where he
    should have been years ago.Hope Nashville wakes up before they lose it
    to MOR and think it's country.Wynn Stewart will be with us in song .

    Thank you from the many fans of Wynn Steward! I've been a fan since the
    1960's and, as an avid collector of Country Music, have 14 LPs of
    Wynn's. Unfortunately, I never got to see him perform live. When my
    friends and I gather at a cottage to listen to "good" Country Music,
    you can bet we play Wynn Stewart. I believe it is a great tribute to
    him whenever I hear Buck Owens or Merle Haggard sing... his influence
    is very evident. Some of my favorite songs are: "Wishful Thinking",
    "Heartaches For A Dime", "Big, Big Love", "Waltz Of The Angels", "Above
    And Beyond", "It Always Rains On Me", "Strings", "Let's Pretend We're
    Kids Again" and "It's Such A Pretty World Today". It's a sad comment on
    the powers who control the Country Music industry when Wynn's passing
    was barely mentioned. With his contributions to the industry, he
    certainly earned (and deserved) more! It's time to cut the politics
    and get Wynn Stewart's plaque into the Country Music Hall of Fame.
    Thanks again, Ed Garland, Tor

    I want to thank you Wren, for the Website you created for your father
    and that I did find and purchase California Country by him. I anxiously
    waiting for the Complete Wynn Stewart from the Bear Family.

    Wynn is, hopefully, getting his recognition he really deserves. His
    vocals belong right with Marty Robbins, Roy Acuff and the rest of the
    real country singers, as well as Wynn belonging in the Country Hall of
    Fame.

    I will always sing the Originals.
    Your Friend,

    Since the early 60's I've been a big fan of Wynn. When I learned CW on
    the guitar Wynn and Stonewall Jackson were my two favorites. Another

    thru the 60's.

    Hello up there to you Wynn. I know you're looking down on all of us
    and wondering why you had to leave so soon. I played clubs in and
    around Amarillo, Texas for years and everyone always loved your songs
    and your voice. You were and are very special to us. We hope and pray
    you'll be in the Country Music Hall Of Fame someday. You made it "Such

    Hang in there we thought Ray would never get in the Hall of Fame and he
    finally made it. The Nashville Powers that be are tough but Wynn will
    have to make it one of these days look how many they have ignored.
    Wynn was not only a great singer but a tremendous writer as well. His
    great style was one of a kind. We will all keep pulling for him. Ray
    recorded "Your Took Her Off My Hands" and Wynn had a beautiful version
    too. One of my favorites is "What If He Don't Love You, Like I Do?"
    and "Half of This and Half of That" His beautiful voice will live on
    as long as we have those treasured records. Please let me know when
    you find out a release date for the box set. It is a definate want for
    me. Sandra Orwig

    I sincerely hope that your father makes into the Country Music Hall of
    Fame, but no matter either way, I personally want you and your family
    to know that there a lot of Missourians who take great pride in how far
    a young boy from Morrisville, Missouri went in country music.
     
    Kenny Burford   14/Jul/1999:20:23:34
    comments continued:

    If you will notice many of the people who have express the wonderful
    admiration for your father and his music are individuals who have spent
    their lives dedicated to the performance of live country music. These
    are the people who know just how great your father's music actually was
    and is to this day. Unfortunately, what you don't see is the name of
    even one individual from one of the major record companies, publishers
    or country music organizations in this response column, which proves
    how little they care about real country music legends. I am glad that
    Bear Family Records is taking the initiative to reissue your father's
    recordings, but what does it say about the American recording industry
    when they will not get off their butts and do the same.

    Kenny Burford   14/Jul/1999:20:20:07
    Wren, I first read the tributes to your father in April 1999 and at
    that time I briefly expressed how much enjoyed your father's music.
    Today I came back and read the many tributes to your father one more
    time and came to a conclusion that so many in the country music
    industry have realized for years. Most of the people who run the
    country music industry today don't know the people who performed and
    wrote the country music in the 40s, 50s, 60s, and even the 70s. They
    know a few of the names of the older performers around Nashville who
    still do the Opry, but that is about the extent of it.

    I would not do anything to distract from your father's memory or talent
    and maybe this isn't the place to write the following, but I will take
    whatever flack comes my way for doing it, but here goes:

    Nancy and I were married in Feb.1968. Our song was "It's Such A Pretty
    World Today". We got a chance to talk and dance to Wynn in Colorado
    Springs, Colorado, at the Gold Dust Inn in February of ??? 1970 ???
    He was just great and had us on cloud 9 after sitting and having a drink
    with us.P.S. We're still married.
     
    Rowdy Stilwell   13/Jul/1999:06:29:05
    My dad turned me on to Wynn. My dad was a concert promoter and promoted
    Wynn at a concert in Witchita Falls, Texas. It was about the time Wynn
    was coming out with It's Raining in Seattle. If anyone can get me a
    copy of this song i would apppreciate it. Also, my dad has told me that
    the night of that particular concert Wynn drank a large amount of
    liquer and did not miss a beat.
     
    Joe Bielinski   12/Jul/1999:19:06:28
    I could very well be the biggest Wynn Stewart fan in the world. I
    actually loaned the Bear Family 3 of my Wynn Stewart records to add to
    the box set which is coming out soon. In 1982, my band, The Country
    Drifters put out a tribute album to Wynn which included a guest
    appearance by one of my dearest friends and Wynn's old steel player, the
    great RALPH MOONEY!!!! Wynn Stewart is a legend; I play his music every
    Sunday on my radio show broadcat on 95.9 FM KYXS out of Weatherford, TX
    from noon-4PM. Long live his memory.

    Bill Cornwell   08/Jul/1999:01:00:32
    This is a great tribute to a great man. I have loved his music since I
    can remember. Being an avid record collector for many years, I am
    proud to have a large volume of his work. To me it's priceless, and so
    good to have the sound of Wynn's voice whenever I want it. I'll be one
    of the first to get the Bear Family collection - they did such a great
    job with the Faron Young collection, I know Wynn's will be just as
    good. Thanks for this website - I will visit often.

    Well, what a surprise!! Wren I knew you as a small child. I often
    wondered what happened to you. It's nice to know that you have taken
    such as interest in your dad. He was one of my best friends and I
    certainly loved him like a brother. I also knew his family before he
    married your mother. My name is Jim Pierce and I played piano with
    Wynn on his Challange Records as well as his Capitol recordings. Also
    I was in his band at George's Roundup and The Nashvill Nevada in Las
    Vegas. Working with Wynn, Ralph Mooney, Roy Nichols Bobby Austin,
    Merle Haggard, Peaches Price was the most interesting time din my
    life. What a band!!!! What a singer!!!! Wynn was VERY creative, and
    it happened all the time!! We could be in a car ar eating or even on
    stage and he was always thinking. Everytime he would write a sdong, he
    sang it with the band. He would say "Here's a new song I just wrote"
    and he would he would tell us the keay and start playing on his guitar
    and we would just fall in

    Hello Wren!
    You have done a wonderful job on this page! I have thought of your
    family often. I don't know if you remember me or not, I lived next door
    to you on Barford (I was 1260, you were 1266) in Hacienda Heights. Do
    you remember the Darr's? I used to play with Geno, we were the same age.
    He went to Glenelder Grammer school. And you had a German Shepherd
    named Spookie. I may have some photos from back then, I'll have to
    check. Also do you remember a Melba and Lane Rounkles?
    I would love to hear from you if you have the time.

    Wendy
     
    Larry West   27/Jun/1999:11:51:10
    Wren, thank you for you're time and effort in getting a site devoted to
    your Dad. I can't tell you how happy it makes me to have access to
    everything here. I was fortunate enough to have known Wynn. My
    Dad, Carl West, played steel for him at George's Roundup for quite a
    while. I got know Wynn when I was a kid. I loved him then. But, I also
    had the opportunity to be around him in the late '70's when he booked
    into the "Silver Dollar" in Las Vegas, where I, now was a picker,
    playing drums for Don Holiman. Wynn was one of a kind! I remember
    hearing the influence had had on other singers (including myself). I've
    never known, or heard anyone that even came close to him. He's one of my
    heroes. Through the years, being a singer myself, I have done alot of
    Wynn's stuff. "Civilians", even some musicians would say "who's Wynn
    Stewart?". Before you knew it these were some of our most requested
    songs, night in and night out, by the crowd. The musicians just wanted
    to know more about him. Now,
     
    Robert Hall   26/Jun/1999:18:32:11
    I find your page very well set up. I have been a fan of Wynn since I
    first heard him in 1970. I found an LP titled Let the whole world sing
    with me at a Colorado flea market, and I thought I hit gold. It hadn't
    even been opened. I assume it was a radio station LP because across
    the corner was the perforated word "FREE'. Wynn has influenced me as a
    musician not only in the way I deliver my singing but also in the
    tasteful manner in which I play my drums. Respectfully yours,

    Wynn Stewart....What to say except a piller in the world of music.
    I've just lately been introduced to his music, but to listen to his
    music, hear his story, man; it's just incredible. I'm a musician my
    self and you can bet my band will be including some great Wynn Stewart
    songs in our set. Great Site!
     
    Bob Fincher   20/Jun/1999:00:31:57
    I simply cannot believe that there is a web site devoted to the
    greatest singer of all time: Wynn Stewart! I just found out about it
    today and I must tell you that it has made my day, in fact, my whole
    year. Wynn and I were the same age I was a DJ for many, many years,
    starting in the fifties and on until retirement throughout the SE:
    Atlanta, Orlando, Jacksonville, Raleigh, etc.
    I got into so much trouble over the years from playing "too many Wynn
    Stewart songs" I tried my very best to wear the records out.
    It was my great good fortune to meet and get to know, as a friend Jan
    and Harlan Howard in later years, but sadly, I never met your Dad in
    person. He will always be with me in spirit and I shall always cherish
    his music.

    Freddie Raper   18/Jun/1999:03:13:02
    Yes,
    I am a Wynn Stewart from the mid 60's and very proud of it. I first
    knew of Wynn at "Panther Hall" in Fort Worth, Tx. thru the Midnight
    Cowboy, Bill Mack. I met Bill back in 1964 when i decided to get into
    Radio as a DJ. There will never be another Wynn Stewart not in my life-
    time. The stars that they today will never be in the same calibar.
    Thanks for letting me voice my opinion.

    Sincerely Yours,

    So many times I've heard Wynn sing and said to whom ever was listening with me, "That fellow has one of the greatest voices in country music." He truly deserves a place in The Country Music Hall of Fame.
    I am really glad to find this page and you are doing an excellent job with it. Be sure that I'm going to try to view everything here and will tell others about it, too.
     
    Ken Mitchell   08/Jun/1999:04:39:43
    I had the pleasure of meeting Wynn and sitting in on drums with his
    band a couple of times back in the late sixties. I was from Southern
    Oklahoma, but also played a number of gigs in the Dallas/Fort Worth and
    North Texas area. Wynn was great guy and a talented performer,
    certainly deserving of a place in the Country Music Hall of Fame. The
    stars must really be lined up today, not only did I find this website
    but I also met a gentleman by the name of Eddie Burris. Eddie used to
    be the drummer for Merle Haggard and co-wrote "Okie for Muskogee".
    While we talked about "the good old days" we were naming off guys we
    knew and had worked with, like Cal Smith, Bill Mack, Billy Parker,
    Earnest Tubb, Billy Byrd, Buck Owens, and of course, Wynn Stewart.

    What a great tribute site to a gentleman who truly deserves a place in
    the Country Music Hall of Fame. I like today's country music but I LOVE
    the classic country of years gone by. That was true country to me.
    Wynn Stewart's version of It's Such A Pretty World Today is not only my
    favorite song that he did but it ranks in my top 10 favorites of all
    time.
    Thanks for the great site Wren, may your father's music live on forever.

    I had the pleasure of meeting Wynn Stewart back in the mid 60's in
    Fort Worth, Tx. at a club called Panther Hall. The club is not around
    any longer. Bill Mack, the Midnight cowboy at WBAP 820 AM was the MC.
    I was so impressed with the late Wynn Stewart I was totally beside my
    self. He was a great showman and entertainer. I feel that if he had
    lived he would have been as great an entertainer as the country singers.
    today. Thanks for letting say these few words.

    Wynn Stewart is a favorite of mine, He did influence the "bakersfield
    sound,' but he also used electric guitar, to influence Honky-tonk in the
    mid 50's. I think my favorite song he did was "KEEPER OF THE KEY." I
    first heard that song on the "MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET," album (song sung
    by Carl Perkin's. I do like early Bakersfield, not late, and Stewart had
    a heavy influence upon it. Stewart also had a huge influence early
    rockabilly in general.

    I worked with Wynn for several years. We worked the Round-up. I did not
    choose to do the Vegas job but neverless enjoyed all my time spent with
    Wynn. I was saddened by his passing. He was a great talant. We spent a
    lot of time together both in music and in just plain home time stuff.
    My son Larry West grew up knowing Wynn and the both of them became very
    close.

    Thanks Wynn for all you did for me, my family, my wife Bettye and our
    son Larry. Thanks for the work , the pay and most of all
    The Frieddship we shared !

    Sincerely,

    I think you have a wonderful web page on Wynn Stewart. I have seen Him
    in person many times, sat at his table, the Wife and I one time when He
    was doing a show in Yuma, Ariz. Had a great time. He was a cutup. I am
    looking forward to cd's. I only wish they would put some cd's out
    seperate some of us retired people can't afford bear familys price's on
    their boxed sets. Maybe you could pass that along. Thanks keep up the
    good work, Wynn is still great.

    I am nearly in tears from reading all of the tributes to Wynn Stewart,
    he alone, has been the #1 singer that I have listened to for more than
    35 years. I wrote a letter to Bobby Bare many years ago, when he was
    producing an album for Wynn and I received a reply from Wynn Stewart
    himself; that hand written letter hangs on my wall to this day. I wrote
    to him and waited patiently for a reply, but discovered to my regret,
    that he had died. His passing was one of the saddest days that I can
    recall! He SHOULD have received far more recognition than he did, you
    only need to hear that incredible voice once to know what all of us
    understand. His music is my companion, his words helped me through many
    trials and tribulations in my life and I salute him!!!
    Thank you indeed for this page - I am honoured to write my few words
    here...

    WHAT AN OVERWHELMING SURPRISE TO FIND A SITE DEDICATED TO THE GREAT
    WYNN STEWART. I'VE BEEN A FAN SINCE SPINNING HIS RECORDS AT A SMALL
    STATION IN ALABAMA IN THE MID SIXTIES. I'VE BEEN IN PROFESSIONAL
    COUNTRY MUSIC ALL THESE YEARS SINCE THEN AND TO THIS DAY STILL HOLD
    WYNN IN THE TOP TEN OF ALL TIME GREATS. I WISH THE STARS OF TODAY HAD
    HIS FEELING FOR THE MUSIC.

    I am glad someone cares enough for country music to share this page
    for the world. Wynn Stewart will forever live on in the music field.
    I am also looking forward to see him make the Country Music Hall of
    fame.
     
    Gary Hoetker   10/May/1999:04:15:49
    Wynn was simply the greatest! He's the only artist I can listen to hour
    on hour. He was power and emotion personified. I miss him but he
    endures.
     
    Lance Worley   05/May/1999:04:29:00
    My dad had a dance band in Houston while I was growing up in the late
    '50's and early '60's. I have the music of Wynn's era etched in my heart
    more than cartoon characters or sports stars. Listening to his "Best Of
    The Challenge Masters" the last couple of days was like going home. My
    only problem is I don't know which one of his wonderful songs to learn
    first. Glad to see his contributions acknowledged here. I look forward
    to the Bear CD.
    thanks a lot

    Sure Glad to find this Site. Wynn Stewart will allways be remembered.
    I love his music, he had a wonderful voice and a the right instruments
    to accompany his real country sound. He is up there with Roy Acuff,
    Marty Robbins, and others. Thank God I found this site as I have been
    searching for his music the last 2 years. I sing at Karaoke and have
    jammed with a few live bands. Love to sing Marty Robbins, Merle Haggard
    and many others. This is my social enjoyment and now hopefully will
    be able to sing Wynn Stewarts music.

    song!

    Thanks for a great page on a great entertainer! I was introduced to Wynn
    Stewart by Merle Haggard. Wynn's influence is very obvious in the way
    Merle sings. He has told me great stories of the early days and how Wynn
    helped him get his start. It is great when the established people help
    the newcomers. I am thankful for people like Merle and Hank Cochran for
    helping me get my start. And thanks again to you for this page. Now I
    can learn even more about where REAL country music came from.
     
    Kenny Burford   16/Apr/1999:20:20:46
    I agree, Wynn Steward is one of the finest singer ever to grace country
    music and regret that more of his music is not played on country
    classic radio shows.
     
    Evan Bridwell   16/Apr/1999:17:28:48
    I have had the honor of working for Buck Owens here in Bakersfield for
    the past 16 years as the Program Director of his Country station KUZZ.
    During this time, I've had the privilege of hearing Buck relate many
    great Wynn Stewart stories. Although I never met Wynn, I have always
    enjoyed his music. "Wishfull Thinking" remains as one of my favorite
    all-time Country classics! Many Country fans here in Bakersfield still
    remember and honor Wynn...as it should always be!
     
    Ben Rubright   13/Apr/1999:00:42:14
    I have been a fan of Wynn Stewart since the '50s. I remember Slowly
    but Surely, A New Love, Hold Back Tomorrow, That Just Kills Me....sure
    wish someone would reissue them on CD. There was no finer country
    singer than he was.

    Well, I'm totally jazzed to see this wonderful tribute to my dear friend Wynn Stewart. I have many special memories of my association with him. I first met him in Long Beach, CA. I was singing at the Foothill Club with Gordon Terry, Johnny Western, Billy Mize and Cliff Crofford. Wynn was playing George's Round-Up across town. I would go to see him and the band. He would spot me and announce over the mike.. I see the Foothill has it's spy out tonite! :-) I sat in with them alot. Wynn's drummer Peeches Price and I were close friends, (still are). When Wynn took the band to Vegas, I went along as his girl singer. I have the distinction of being the only one he ever used in any of his bands. I'm very honored and thankful for that. I learned alot working with Wynn and the best band ever. There was Ralph Mooney, Bobby Austin, Roy Nichols, Jim Pierce and Helen "Peeches" Price. Later, Wynn brought in George French and Merle Haggard. WOW!! I have a demo of Wynn and I singing a duet of Hank Thompson's "Breaking the R
     
    Jim Gorichanaz   02/Apr/1999:22:04:03
    Although I never met Wynn, I was lucky enough to see him in a number of
    showsin the Midwest, package shows with people like Marvin Rainwater,
    Bill Anderson,Hank Locklin and many more. He was a teriffic
    entertainer, and will be remembered for all time. He is in good hands
    in Gods'hands.
     
    Otello den Hartog   29/Mar/1999:09:03:56
    Also overseas in Netherlands, where I reside Wynn was one of the
    greatest ever lived. I never had the chance to see him performing live,
    alas, but he sure was one of the roots for a lot of nowadays performing
    CW artists. Wren, keep up the good work, and YES! Hall of Fame is the
    MINIMUM as a thanks from this world for what he achieved, and what he
    meant for the country scene allover the world ;)
     
    Charlie Owens   28/Mar/1999:15:51:04
    One of the all time greats in my book. I had the pleasure of seeing
    Wynn perform quite a few times in the Fort Worth -&- Dallas, Texas area.
    I was fortunate enough to be in the house band where he would perform a
    few times in the late 60's and early 70's
    Thanks, Charlie Owens

    I moved to nashville in 87. Thanks so much for a place to visit one of
    my heroes. the other billy graham

    Friend and bandmate, Robbie Robinson, introduced me to Wynn a few months
    back. I listen to him now constantly, having the tape that Robbie got
    from an old friend in Texas plus three albums I've found...in Ventura CA
    and Berkeley. He's huge, an inspiration. Can't locate the CD put out
    in 95--allegedly out of print. He should be in the Hall of Fame; he's
    the real deal in every way.
     
    Jerry Hayes   25/Mar/1999:21:28:02
    I'm so glad to see this Website!! Wynn was one of the greatest who
    ever lived. I had the pleasure of backing him up on the west coast
    years ago. He was so under rated by the Nashville establishment who I
    always thought didn't like him because he was a West Coast Artist. I
    hope you have good luck with this site. It's much needed and certainly
    appreciated!! Jerry Hayes, Chesapeake, Virginia

    Great site for one of the greats of the "West Coast Sound."
    I have been playing Wynn's Challenge recordings on my radio program
    since Bear Family's double LP came out a number of years ago. I now use
    the AVI CD so as not to wear out the records. Glad to hear the news of
    Bear Family's plan to put out CD box set. I can't wait.
    Keep up the great site, I've bookmarked it.

    Hi From Wales
    Great news about Wynn and upcoming Bear family release they`ll do a
    superb job, by far the world`s best reissue label. So I can finally
    replace my well worn AVI cd.

    When the new release comes out Shaun and I will review it on our RHOF
    page and put a link there to your excellent site. It looks great now,
    congratulations.

    To reiterate Shaun`s wry comment re the Country hall of fame ignoring
    Wynn, Its not "Wishfull Thinking", Wynn is "Above and Beyond" many
    current honorees so "Come On" Nashville, "Three Cheers For The Losers"

    Best wishes and keep up the great job!

    Janet McBride 16/Feb/1999:15:29:08
    I first heard Wynn Stewart over the radio where he was on a live broadcast from a club. We're talking a lot of years ago so
    I hope my info is correct. I know they said he was 14 years old and
    I see from his bio that I was very close to the same age. I was asked
    by Wynn to sing one night with his band at at the Georges Roundup
    Club in Long Beach Calif. I was thrilled to death. I believe I sang
    'Wishfil Thinking' but it could have been "Keeper of the Keys'. I loved
    both songs over the years but the year was 1960 of that I am sure.
    Soon after that night my husband Claude McBride and Wynn worked
    out a time and studio for my first recordings. Wynn and his great band
    including Ralph Mooney were there and it sounded so good I was sure
    I was on my way to stardom. Well, it wasn't Wynn's fault that my name
    is not a household word. I gave it several years of my life but it just
    wasn't in the cards for me. I sang many times with Wynn and his band. Yes even when his side man was Merle Haggard. I
     
    Junior Barnard   12/Feb/1999:01:40:57
    Wynn was certainly one of the greatest Bakersfield artists and one of
    the great Country artists, period. Even today his recordings remain a
    touchstone for anyone who loves hard-core West-Coast country or just
    plain honky-tonk music. More of his recordings should be reissued on CD
    and, obviously, he should have been in the CMA Hall of Fame years ago.
    Thanks very much for putting up this webpage for Wynn.
     
    Eddie Collins 5-String Quarterly 11/Feb/1999:04:07:40
    I had the opportunity to back up Wynn at the Ban Dar night club in
    Ventura, California in 1980 or 81. Unfortunately, Wynn was losing a
    battle with the bottle that night and we had to cover for him for a
    couple of hours while he got it together. Still, when he finally came
    out and sang, you immediately recognized, and were drawn in by, that
    unforgettable voice. Definitely, high on my list of all-time favorite
    country singers. The drummer in our band at that time, Dick Gay, has
    been the drummer for Clint Black for many years.
     
    Gregg Makepeace   08/Feb/1999:21:47:02
    Hearing Wynn Stewart's music for the first time was like a revelation
    to me. It was like hearing a touchstone for the "Bakersfield Sound"
    that I love so much. He truly deserves more recognition for what
    he accomplished.
     
    Shaun Mather 07/Feb/1999:09:22:13
    Forget the gold rush, it was Wynn Stewart who put California on the
    map. Take a listen to Playboy, Come On, Big City, Big,Big Love etc.
    this guy was great. Not being in the Country Music Hall of Fame is
    their loss not your's.
     
    Jason Shields   07/Feb/1999:03:40:52
    Wynn is one of the best honky tonk singers out there, at this time I'm
    working on trying to get a story of him in the pages of my magazine
    called Texas Jamboree. His voice is one that is always familiar, and
    always loved.
     
    raymond osborne   06/Feb/1999:22:03:25
    Wynn was the one making the music I love before there was Buck, Merle
    and Ray Price. I'm hoping I can find this website again.
     
    Mike Harmon 06/Feb/1999:19:28:09
    Wynn Steart, along with Tommy Collins, Bill Woods and Red Simpson are
    probably the most underrated country perfromers of all time, and had a
    tremendous impact on anyone who ever picked up a guitar an played a
    country tune after them. I am truly excited that Wynn Steart finally
    has a force on the Internet. Check out anothe of the Bakersfeidld
    Sound's pioneers' web site, Bill Woods here:

    Thanks for taking the time to chronicla the life and music of Wynn
    Stewart.

    Wynn and I were married for 7 years and had 2 beautiful daughters Wren
    Dee and Tatia Wynnette. I live across the street from Wren with my
    husband Jack. If anyone has information,pictures etc. about Wynn we
    would sure appreciate it. Also if you would like to know anything
    about him I may help with just write and let me know. Thanks for all
    your interest and for all the nice things already said here from ya'll.
     
    George Duncan Sypert   05/Feb/1999:05:33:45
    Wynn Stewart was one of my heroes. I had the distinct pleasure of
    backing him up with my band The Moonlighters here in Colo Spgs at Jack
    Jacksons Cow Palace. Don't remember the exaxt year but I would say
    about 1974 maybe.
     
    Andy Greatrix   01/Feb/1999:22:37:57
    Wynn Stewart is definately one of my favourite singers.It's nice to see

    Nashville wake up -&- induct this true pioneer -&- legend into the Hall of
    Fame.There will never be another Mr. Wynn Stewart!!!!
     
    Bob Knight   01/Feb/1999:02:56:48
    Wynn Stewart was singer's singer, a musician's musician, a gentleman's
    gentleman, and moreover he was my friend.
    I had the pleasure of working with him on several occasions in the late
    70s in The DFW, and East Texas area.

    Yes, Wynn Stewart belongs in The Country Music Hall of Fame.

    Wynn was my favorite singer for years,his passing away was a sad time
    for me.I felt like a part of country music died along with him.I heard
    sing a sad song on the radio a year or so ago,that song would still go
    #1 if it could get some play time.I would love to know where his music
    could be bought.Also I would buy that tape you have a copy of when it
    comes out. Sam Moore

    I think that Wynn Stewart was a great country artist in his own right:
    in his songwriting, his voice and his great bands, that helped give
    Merle Haggard his start. He was a bit ahead of both Merle and Buck Owens
    in the Bakersfield sound, but IMO he has now been mostly forgotten.
    I think this is too bad, because he was great! I wish more people
    had a chance to hear him.

    I think he deserves to be in the CMA Hall of Fame!

    I've always considered Wynn Stewart one of the best examples of the
    Bakersfield sound.I bought many of his records during his active years
    and still have them.Hopefully Bear Family will issue a CD box set in the
    future and place his recorded legacy back in print where it belongs.

    Wynn and Ralph Mooney were responsible for some of my favorite music.
    Good luck, always.

    It's great that Wynn has a web page. I look forward to the day when we
    can own a Wynn Stewart box set of cds. They surely would enhance any
    collection.

    Next to Ray Cothren, I am the worlds second most dedicated Wynn Stewart fan. It is my privilege to sign this guestbook commemorating this great traditional country singer.

    This is great that Wynn has his own web page! Wynn is my favorite singer of all time. I sincerely hope that he makes it into the Country Music Hall of Fame one day.
