Wil Reid and first cousin Landgon grew up Statler — Wil’s father is Harold Reid, and Langdon’s father is Don Reid. If you don’t know those names, you are not old-school country. Harold and Don Reid are Country Music Hall of Fame members with the Statler Brothers, from Staunton.
The two sons grew up to make their own country act, Wilson Fairchild, which opened last year for George Jones at Salem Civic Center. Wilson Fairchild returns to town on Saturday for Star-B-Q Salem 2012. Lauren Alaina is the headliner.
Music writer Tad Dickens has this podcast with Wil Reid of Wilson Fairchild on his cut’n'scratch music blog.
