Singer/songwriter Bryan Wayne had more reasons to be excited than most artists, celebrating hisWhile You Waitalbum release recently with a party at SESAC with friends and family.
Diagnosed with terminal ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) last year, the
14-song collection is a gift to his wife, two boys, friends and family,
the ALS community and is a “thank you” to an industry that continues to
support his dreams. It is available and all online retailers and streaming services.

made this record, because I knew with ALS that I’d lose my voice and I
wanted my wife and boys, along with friends and family to hear me
singing forever no matter what.” He added, “So many people have asked me
over the years when was I ever going to make a record of my own – well
here it is!”

Several of hisWhile You Waitco-writers joined him on stage at the album release party to give voice
to the songs Bryan recorded soon after his diagnosis. Six-time ASCAP
Songwriter of the Year Ashley Gorley performed the title cut, and GRAMMY
winner and 2004 ASCAP Songwriter of the Year Neil Thrasher sang “Just
Wouldn’t Leave It Alone.” GRAMMY-nominated songwriter Bonnie Baker sang
the moving “No More Rainy Days,” Jason Blaine performed “Slow Time
Down,” Joanna Janet performed “Fly,” Big & Rich wrapped up the
evening performing Bryan’s single, “Simplify” with James Otto, Janet and
others on stage.

has taken my ability to sing, so I was honored my friends and
co-writers stepped in to perform,” Bryan added. “I was blown away to see
so many people show up and lend their support. This industry has been
good to my family and me, and I hope these songs inspire people for many
years to come.”

WHILE YOU WAITwas recorded in Big Kenny’s Last Dollar studio, Starstruck Studios, and
Dave Brainard’s deciBel studio in Berry Hill. Bryan Wayne and Brian
Kolb co-produced the project and subsequently mixed it at Kolb’s THE

lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that
affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons
reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the
muscles throughout the body. The progressive degeneration of the motor
neurons in ALS eventually leads to their death. When the motor neurons
die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is
lost. With voluntary muscle action progressively affected, patients in
the later stages of the disease may become totally paralyzed.
