Tickets Reserved Seating $30
One thing White never tires of mentioning is the day he heard the music of his musical mentor, Steve Wariner. “People talk about defining moments. For me, this was definitely one of them. I heard Steve’s voice and I immediately gravitated toward his tone and phrasing. I knew right then, at the age of fourteen, what I wanted to do with my life.” Fresh out of high school, White says he packed up his guitar, drum sticks, angst, dreams, five hundred dollars that his family gave him and headed to Nashville to pursue a career in country music.
The move proved to be beneficial. He charted seventeen singles on Billboard’s Country Charts, had six number one singles, two platinum records, two gold records, he joined forces with Shania Twain and together they took “From This Moment On” all the way up to number four on Billboard’s Hot 100 Chart. He has garnered several awards for himself, including a Grammy, a CMA Horizon Award, and an ACM Top Male Vocalist award among them. And, with his songwriting, he helped several other artists climb the charts; Sawyer Brown and Diamond Rio both made it to the top five slot with songs co-written by White. He’s also had song recorded by Wynonna, Joe Diffie, LeAnn Rimes, Lila McCann, Jackie Lee, Love and Theft, just to name a few. The accolades led him to various TV appearances such as “The Tonight Show,” “Late Night With David Letterman,” NBC’s “The Today Show,” and “CBS This Morning.” However, despite all of his musical successes, it is an award from outside of the music arena that is probably the best indicator of who White really is; People Magazine named him one of their “50 most beautiful people” in the world and everyone who knows him finds it easy to understand why.
Tim, the youngest of nine children, was born in Vancouver, WA and was raised in the country in Chelatchie Prairie, WA. He learned to play guitar from brothers Marvin, Butch, and friend Ed Brown. Music was a large part of weekend family activities. Tim’s sister, Kathy, a great singer herself, was a big influence and gave him the opportunity to extend his talents to others. After graduating from Battle Ground High School in 1990, in Clark County, WA, Tim attended Eastern Oregon University in La Grande, OR where he majored in Business Management and played football. It was in La Grande where he started playing publicly in a place called Klondike’s Pizza. This small beginning inspired him to shift direction in his life and move to Nashville, TN to chase a dream, which has led him to many great moments. A friend of his, Dave Sutton, took him around “Music City” and introduced him to Ray Walker, bass singer of the famous quartet, The Jordanaires. Unknowingly at the time, this was his break into the music business. Ray opened doors for Tim that would begin his career and make his dreams a reality. Tim’s played the world famous, “Grand Ole Opry”, appeared on Crook and Chase on the Nashville Network and opened for several artists including Jack Greene and Emmy Lou Harris to name a few. He has shared the stage with Noel Haggard, son of Merle Haggard, Daryl Singletary and many more artists as well. Tim is currently living his dream of writing songs and singing around the country. His latest project, “Glad You Made It”, continues with his contemporary traditional sound. Tim wants to thank you for your support. He hopes that by playing a wide variety of songs that one might “hit home” with you.
