We’re happy to announce that Walter Egan will be a special guest at the Nashville Rock n Pod Expo Saturday August 26, 2017 at the Music Valley Event Center. He will be on hand for a signing/meet & greet session as well as guesting on podcasts that will be on site recording during the expo.
Best loved for his million-selling chart-topper “Magnet and Steel”, Egan is more than a one hit wonder. His follow-up to that hit, “Hot Summer Nights” (also made a hit world-wide by the group Night), was recently used as the inspiration for Eminem’s comeback smash We Made You. Walter’s composition “Hearts On Fire” was recorded by Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris on the classic album “Grievous Angel”.
With numerous covers of his songs around the world, Walter has up to now released ten solo CDs as well as three with the Brooklyn Cowboys and six with the Malibooz. A new British package has just been released with his first four Columbia LPs called “The Collection”.
“Magnet and Steel” is featured in commercials and in major motion pictures (Deuce Bigelow, Boogie Nights, Overnight Delivery, The Night We Never Met).
More than just a writer and singer, Egan has played on many sessions and has worked with such luminaries as Stevie Nicks, Lindsey Buckingham, Fleetwood Mac, Don Henley, Jackson Browne, Dean Torrence, Linda Ronstadt, Chris Darrow, Wanda Jackson, Randy and the Rainbows, Burrito Deluxe (also the Burritos) and even played bass for the classic group Spirit.
These days he plays with his powerful band from his base in Nashville, and with the surf pop band the Malibooz.
Most recently his tenth solo album was released on the Classic Music Vault label, called “Myth America”.
