Warner Mack Biography
b. Warner McPherson, 2 April 1938, Nashville, Tennessee, USA. Warner Mack is one of the few country musicians to be born in Nashville, although at the age of seven he moved to Jackson, Tennessee, and when he was nine, to Vicksburg, Mississippi. Mack, whose father was a minister, tells his story in the song "Tennessee Born, Mississippi Raised". He played at various school functions and started performing on the radio show Louisiana Hayride. In 1957, he wrote and recorded "Is It Wrong (For Loving You)?", which was later a number 1 country hit for Sonny James. In 1964 Mack had success with a Jim Glaser song, "Sitting In An All Night Cafe", but while it was climbing the country charts, he suffered serious injuries in a car accident. Mack, whose stage name came about through a mistake on a record label, had a US country number 1 with his own composition, "The Bridge Washed Out", and had further success with "Talking To The Walls" and "How Long Will It Take?". He was the first country artist to record a national commercial for Coca-Cola. His last US country chart entry was "These Crazy Thoughts" in 1977. Mack has completed successful tours of UK country clubs, always closing with an emotional version of "He Touched Me".

Meeting Warner | Reviewer: JACK ANDRICK | 12/28/08
Our band backed Warner when he was in Columbus, Ohio some years ago. His songs, professionalism and attitude won the hearts of every crowd with each performance.
After having the opportunity to chat with Warner he gained my total and absolute respect as a songwriter, singer, musician and especially a great human being.
A kinder gentleman you will never find. It was such a great privilege to meet someone we can all describe as simply, "A GOOD FRIEND THAT BROUGHT US TRUE FEELINGS OF LIFE THROUGH HIS LYRICS."
Thank you Warner
