ALL ACCESS sends condolences to SELECTONE RECORDS artist STEVE WARINER and his family on the death of his nephew MATT WARINER on FRIDAY afternoon (4/16). MATT, who was 28, died in a one car accident in rural HAMILTON COUNTY, TN. MATT lost control of his vehicle at the top of a hill and crashed into a grove of trees.
MATT’s brother BRAD said: "He just absolutely loved music. We all kind of play a little bit, but he especially had a serious passion for it and was very good.”
STEVE WARINER said: ““I loved MATT’s passion and enthusiasm for music. He came about it naturally, growing up in our musical family. In fact, he had his guitar and amp in the car with him at the time of the accident, getting ready for a show that night. MATT always knew what I was up to with my career—where I was playing, if I had a new record out, if I was doing TV or shooting a video, whatever. I was always proud that MATT was proud of me. He had a big heart and a terrific sense of humor. He was full of life, and we just can’t believe that his life was cut so short. Someone said to me this weekend that our loss is heaven’s gain, and I couldn’t agree more.”
