The group was also nominated for three Juno Awards for Best Country Group or Duo in 1997, 1998 and 1999.Wade launched a solo career in 2000 when he signed to Shoreline Records and released his debut album, Lucky 13. Five singles were released from the album, including the Top 10 "Running Away with You." Following the release of a career retrospective in 2001, So Far, Wade was diagnosed with oromandibular dystonia. While he was forced to end his recording career, he has continued his career as a songwriter. Celine Dion included one of Wade's songs, "Come to Me," on her 2004 album Miracle.

Currently a documentary is in production about his career and battle with Dystonia.
