Stacy and Cari from California said, "We traveled 3 hours north to get to Trout's in Bakersfield.  For the first show on Dec 30th, we went as a girl's night out.  Our very sweet husbands drove up on the 31st to join us for the New Year's Eve show.  They are fans of Wade and his music too.  We sure had a great time!"


The annual Christmas party at Judge Bean's had a standing room only crowd - lots of Wade Hayes' supporters from several states helped to fill the room. Nancy Huddleston (aka as "Dancy') traveled from Florida for the event. Many of the travelers had made the Cancun trip in October and were eager to hear Wade with a full band and to renew friendships.


Dawn Hayes didn't come to Nashille to escape the wintry weather in Iowa. That was just a bonus. Seeing a favorite entertainer and touching base with friends she made on the Cancun trip were the first order of pleasure.


Charlotte from Sherman, Texas says, "As he always does, Wade gave an awesome performance in Shawnee, OK, November 28, 2007.  It is always a pleasure to hear him sing and to speak with him after the show. I happily drove the 3 hour drive just to see my FAVORITE country artist!" 


LOVE YOU, WADE!!!!!!!!!!!! 


Charity Haney (Alabama) was glad that Wade was appearing in Glencoe Alabama (practically in her backyard). She's one supporter who's worn out her cds and tapes.


Dianne Ayers and Dad, Jimmie Powell, traveled from North Carolina to Glencoe, Alabama to renew their long time acquaintance with Wade and his music.


Highlight of the first night of the Trent Wlmon Beach Party in Cancun, Mexico was dinner with the artist of your choice - for the first 30 people who signed up. Friends Dawn Hayes (Iowa) and Nancy Van Tomme are shown here with Wade following the dinner.


Shelley Howell (Texas) was one of the dinner guets.


Daughters and Moms are frequently in Wade audiences. Erica and her mom, Laurel, made the trip from California.


Lots of good, lasting friendships have been made among those who travel to support Wade and his music. Lynn Savage (Kentucky) and Christina Gardner (Missouri) formed a friendship on the Cancun trip.


Lynn Savage's daughter, Martie (Kentucky), completed another mother-daughter duo who made the Cancun trip.


Terri Robison (Tennessee) has an early, early fan club number. She's logged lots of miles and smiles on Wade tours. Mexico's not too far for a road trip to see Wade.


And speaking of smiles, Wade and Jane Baab (Georgia) have some great ones. The Cancun trip was a fabulous one.


Welcome to Troy and Renee Fisher from Indiana. Troy brought Renee to the Tipton show and a meet and greet with Wade, planning it as a time of encouragement for her. That morning she'd just had her first chemo treatment following the discovery of breast cancer a month earlier. She was quite the trouper for the event. She had donated her long hair to "Locks of Love" before she entered chemotherapy.


Kay Myers (Indiana) with Wade before sound check at Tipton. Kay is the Manager of the Eastern Wing band that performed before Wade.


Katie Ruth, Lindsey (7) and Gracee (5) (Starkville, MS) traveled to McMinville, TN for the Honky Tonk Tailgate party. Says Katie, "I brought my girls and my mom to see Wade play and it was well worth the 7 hour drive!! My girls were in awe and totally smitten with Wade, especially my oldest one! He did an awesome job, kidding with the crowd and waving at my youngest while singing with that awesome voice of his and dancing with those long legs. We had a wonderful time and it was the best birthday I have ever had!"


It was a fun time at the Honky Tonk Tailgate party in McMinnville,TN for Joann (Tennessee) and Christina (Virginia). Here they are meeting with Wade after the show.

Wade and Charlotte at Clute, TX

Charlotte (Texas) writes," I was so excited to see Wade perform at the Mosquito Festival on July 28. He is so sweet... I had the opportunity to chat with him for a while, and as a bonus, I got the privilege of coming home with the hat he wore during his awesome performance!!!

Sheri's Baby Wade with Wade at El Dorado

Wade Daniel Haltom (Sheri's son) makes his first road trip, his first concert and a meeting with his name sake at only six months old. The meeting of the "handsome little guy" with the handsome "big guy" in Eldorado, Kansas was certainly a Kodak moment.


Michigan fans are always eager for Wade to head up their way. Detroit to Onsted wasn't that far for Julia Bellinger to go see her favorite artist.


How lucky can one woman get - tucked there between Trent Willmon and Wade? Looks like smiles all around at the Ropin' Pen, Trent's fan club party at Judge Bean's in June. Nikki Pearsn (aka twillmon_fan1967), Massachusetts, is the fortunate one in the middle. As Trent's friend, Wade answered the call when Trent needed a guitar player for the event.


Gayle Galbreath, Alabama, writes, "I saw Wade perform at Trent Willmon's fan club party on June 8th at Judge Bean's BBQ. It was wonderful. Of course, Wade is so shy. Even when Trent asked him to play something for everyone, he kindly declined and said it wasn't his gig. Trent complimented him several times for picking up the tune and jumping in and keeping Trent in line with the song. I was on the cruise in 2005 and loved meeting both these guys.. "


Michele Crouch , Kentucky, writes, "This was taken at the Honkytonk Tailgate Party in Florence,Ky. Me and a friend of mine drove for 2 and a half hours to see them and it was totally worth it.Wade is a great guy with so much talent! Im still dancing with you will forever be in my head!!!


This picture was taken at Trent Willmon's 1st Ropin Pen Party at Judge Bean's Bar-B-Q. Wade filled in for Trent's guitar player. Katie Ruth, Mississippi, writes, "The way that Wade and Trent interacted showed that they are both down-to-earth individuals as well as talented musicians.  I want Wade know how thrilled I was to finally meet him after wanting to for almost 12 years. Since Wade only sang one of his own songs, this means that I will still be waiting until I can make it back to Nashville to see him again to hear him sing "Still Dancing With You". I was still a star-struck teenage looking into his face after all these years! It was well worth the wait and hopefully it won't be as long until I can do it again! Thanks for making my day and God Bless!"

I got to witness a once in a lifetime show and got to meet the man himself, and Trent Willmon, too." Jerry's from Gary Stewart country, down there in South Florida. Gary was one of Wade's influences and those South Florida folks appreciate the way Wade does Gary's music. Jerry signs himsef "Red Neck Nation, Tequesta, FL.
