Steve was struggling after he was downsized, and was taking menial jobs to keep his bills paid, but his real interest had always been music. He took a chance, and formed with his daughter Amanda, and son Tyler a musical group.
Calling themselves, “The Wilkinsons”, they signed to Giant Records, and released their debut single, “26 Cents”. Steve co-wrote the song, and it climbed the charts, reaching number one in Canada and was a top five hit on the Billboard Hot Country Singles and Tracks Chart.
The band is no longer together, but Amanda and Tyler have since formed another group, the “Small Town Pistols”.
