NASHVILLE, Tenn. (February 10, 2017) – The wait is over, as country duo Wilson Fairchild releases their anticipated project Songs Our Dads Wrote. The album pays tribute to their fathers Harold and Don Reid, both founding members of the legendary Country Music Hall of Fame quartet, The Statler Brothers. The project features nine Statler classics, along with a special Wilson Fairchild penned track, “The Statler Brothers Song.”
"The nicest response we have gotten is that we come from Country Music Royalty,” said a humorous Wilson Fairchild. “So, from Prince Wil and Duke Langdon, we hope everyone loves the music as much as we did recording these cool songs."
The project has been met with high critical praise, with Digital Journal calling Songs Our Dads Wrote a “heartfelt project.” The dynamic duo also took fans inside the making of the song, “A Letter From Shirley Miller,” in a feature on The Country Note. Showing the versatility of the project, Cybergrass ‘The Bluegrass Music News Network’ took fans inside the track “Some I Wrote,” which took a more acoustic route. The pair was also recently featured on WSM’s Nashville Today with Devon O’Day, the syndicated program Whisky & Cigarettes, Nashville Entertainment Weekly and more, with upcoming features on the Classic Country Jamboree, Nashville Entertainment Weekly, Nashville Sports & Entertainment Magazine, among others.
The rootsy duo are kicking their promo efforts into high gear, appearing at the legendary Ernest Tubb Midnite Jamboree on February 25. The show is the second longest-running radio program in history, airing on 650 AM WSM, enabling listeners to listen in LIVE worldwide at wsmonline.com.
