WYNN VARBLE

Series #3 - June 26, 2019

Growing up in Georgia, Wynn became a huge fan of country music at an early age.
By age 15, he was strumming an old silvertone guitar and writing songs. By the time he had finished high school, he'd already formed a couple of country and bluegrass bands. They played local VFW clubs and hotel lounges. 

In the early 80's, he ventured to Nashville for a summer, where he met several songwriters, including Dave Gibson with whom he became friends with and did his first co-writing with. Wynn left that next fall to work a horse show circuit with some buddies . He soon got back into music though playing clubs from Florida to Texas.
Finally, making the move to Nashville permanently in 92' he landed a publishing deal with Reba McEntire's Starstruck Music, where he had his first songwriting success with Sammy Kershaw's recording of " Fit To Be Tied Down".

Since then his songs have been recorded by Darryl Worley,Montgomery Gentry, Lee Ann Womack, Gary Allen, Easton Corbin, Kelly Pickler , Jon Pardi ,William Michael Morgan, Brad Paisley , Garth Brooks and many others. In 2009 he was named Nashville Songwriter's Association's "Songwriter of the Year". 

His songs "Waitin' On A Woman" , "Have You Forgotten" and "A Little More Country Than That" were all nominated for Song Of The Year by either the ACMs and CMAs. Wynn appeared for four seasons on "The Joey and Rory Show" and now writes for BMG music and tours regularly.
