We’re excited to be coming back to Benton for the Kentucky Opry! We’ll have the band and playing that traditional country music that we grew up on, as well as some Statler classics, and of course, some songs from our new CD, “Statler Made.” And we’ll definitely be singing our bluegrass infused song about Kentucky that is our most requested. We enjoy music from a lot of genres and it shows in our shows…country, classic, instrumental, novelty, funny, gospel, and originals. Can’t wait to see y’all there!

Wilson Fairchild is a country music duo made up of Wil and Langdon Reid from the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, and sons of the legendary and Country Music Hall of Famers, Harold and Don Reid, of The Statler Brothers. 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 are no strangers to knowing how to put an idea to music and come away with a great storytelling song.

Along with singing and songwriting, they both play guitars on stage and have played many other instruments during recording sessions. But a Wilson Fairchild show is much more than music; it is an experience. It is professional. It is exciting. Their clever lyrics will make you smile and they know how to strike your heartstrings with a perfectly delivered ballad. One thing’s for sure: these guys know how to entertain.
