Country music duo Wilson Fairchild are on the verge of releasing their latest project Songs Our Dads Wrote, which will hit stores on February 7. The pair, which consists of Wil and Langdon Reid, are honoring their fathers, Harold and Don Reid, both founding members of the legendary quartet, The Statler Brothers. In anticipation for the upcoming release, the duo will appear on the legendary Midnite Jamboree on February 25, hosted by the Ernest Tubb Record Shop.
The appearance will feature performances from the highly anticipated release, which includes nine tracks originally co-written by Harold and Don Reid, plus a special Wilson Fairchild penned tribute track, “The Statler Brothers Song.” The Midnite Jamboree is the second longest running radio show in history, airing on the historic 650 AM WSM. The free show will take place at the Texas Troubadour Theatre in Nashville, while fans can also listen in LIVE worldwide at wsmonline.com.
Songs Our Dads Wrote is distributed exclusively by BFD through RED Distribution, with standout songs on the project also including former Statler Brothers hit, “Guilty,” originally released in 1983, when it stormed into the Billboard Hot Country Songs top ten.

About Wilson Fairchild:
Wilson Fairchild is a country music duo made up of Wil and Langdon Reid from the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. These two men, referred to as “the Reid boys,” have been writing, performing and playing music together their whole lives. To sum up their passion and drive for their music and career, a self-penned line from their new title cut, “Country On”, says it all: “We love country music and we’ll never let it die.”
Wil and Langdon are highly acclaimed songwriters. They both have been writing songs since their teenage years, in between baseball and football games and girls, of course. Along with recording their own music, such artists as the Statler Brothers, Ricky Skaggs and Dailey & Vincent have recorded their songs, as well. So yes, that means their songwriting gamut spans through the country, bluegrass, and gospel fields. They learned the craft from the best and know how to put an idea to music and come away with a great storytelling song.
