A life beyond just music, an ALS warrior, father, and husband Bryan Wayne shares some of his biggest cuts and biggest moments from his life. Recorded from Big Kenny's (Big & Rich) private studio, Bryan also shares the story behind his latest record While You Wait and how you can really help those that are diagnosed with ALS at


Bryan Wayne's "What If She's An Angel", recorded by Tommy Shane Steiner was a #2 hit in 2002 and hit it big as BMI's Millon Air award hitting 1 million spins. Bryan has also had top 25 single success with Chris Cagle's "Country By The Grace of God" and Big and Rich's "Kick My Ass". The MuzikMafia was a collection of country artists and songwriters that changed and shaped the sounds of the early 2000's that we still hear today. Bryan, being a part of that transition of country music also shared cuts with Clay Walker, Emerson Drive, Rodney Carrington, Jason Blaine, and others during his 20 plus year career as a songwriter.

ALS is a terrible disease. It robs you of what you've always known and used in your body. Currently, Bryan and his family (wife and two sons) are adjusting to this ever-evolving disease. Two of their biggest needs is a wheel-chair accessible van and bathroom renovations. I want you to give something to someone that could really use it, and remember that your time may be next when you need a little help. To give to these needs, visit this link.
