Schroeder Dance Hall, 12516 Farm-to-Market Road 622 in Goliad, is the second oldest dance hall in Texas.
Wariner began his career in 1973 at the age of 17 while playing in a club in Indianapolis. Dottie West hired him on the spot as her bassist, and he toured with her for three years. After going on to play in Bob Luman's band, he played bass in Chet Atkins' band. Atkins eventually signed Wariner to his first recording contract at RCA in 1977.
Wariner has several songwriting credits to his name for other artists, including No. 1 hits for Clint Black and Garth Brooks as well as singles for Bryan White and Keith Urban.
He has won four Grammy Awards: Best Country Collaboration with Vocals and Best Country Instrumental three times.
His most recent Grammy was in 2010 for "Producer's Medley," and he is one of five guitar players in the world to be given the "Certified Guitar Player" award by Chet Atkins.
In 1996, he became a member of the Grand Ole Opry and was inducted into the Music City Walk of Fame in Nashville in 2008 and the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame in 2011.
