Who is Wilson Fairchild? Wilson Fairchild is a country music duo from Wil and Langdon Reid in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley, Virginia. These two men, known as “the Reid boys,” have written, played and played together all their lives. To sum up her passion and her desire for music and career, a self-written line from her new title, “Country On,” says: “We love country music and will never let it die.”
Wil and Langdon are highly acclaimed songwriters. Both have been writing songs between baseball and football games since their youth and, of course, girls. In addition to recording their own music, artists such as the Statler Brothers, Ricky Skaggs and Dailey & Vincent have also recorded their songs. So yes, that means their songwriting palette spans the country, across bluegrass and gospel fields. They have learned the craft from the best and are no strangers to knowing how to bring an idea to music and get away with a great story song. In fact, Wil and Langdon have written five of the new cuts on their latest Country On album and recorded a captivating version of “The Star Spangled Banner.”
In addition to vocals and songwriting, both play guitars on stage and have played many other instruments during the recording sessions. But a Wilson Fairchild show is much more than music. It’s an experience. It’s professional. It’s exciting. Your clever lyrics will make you smile and they will make you beat your heart faster with a perfectly delivered ballad. One thing is for sure: these guys know how to entertain.
They get their “Entertainment Chops” honestly. Wil’s father is Harold Reid and Langdon’s father is Don Reid of the legendary Statler Brothers. In 2007, Wil and Langdon wrote a tribute to the Statlers, who were simply called ‘The Statler Brothers Song’. They were asked to be part of the medallion ceremonies and perform the song for all their Statler fathers when the brothers were inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame and the Country Music Hall of Fame.
From the last few years to the present, Wil and Langdon have repeatedly expanded their resumes with successes, as have friends and fans on their Facebook page. Her dedicated personalities, coupled with her musical talent and spontaneous wit, fit perfectly with any audience. They have opened the show for the only George Jones at several concert appearances. They graced the stage of the Grand Ole Opry. This year, 2012, Wilson Fairchild was shown in Larry’s Country Diner on RFD-TV. They were also part of a DVD series called Country’s Family Reunion: Second Generations, which also airs on RFD TV. In the generational show, the boys played one of their favorite Statler songs, which their father had written, along with their homage to the Statlers, “The Statler Brothers Song”. They recently won a competition at the Greenbrier Resort in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia. They sang “The National Anthem” before Toby Keith took the stage at the PGA Classic on July 4, 2012 and will perform at the resort several times in 2012. Wilson Fairchild also sang “The National Anthem” at Camden Yards in Baltimore, Maryland, before the Orioles game in July 2012. They continue to add daily shows and performances to their calendars.
“Country On” is the latest album release. Two of the songs, “Dude” and “Stuck”, were written together with their “musical brother” Bryan Kennedy. You may have heard of Bryan’s successes with three number one hits he wrote for Garth Brooks. The CD Country On was produced by her other Kennedy brother Gordon. Gordon Kennedy is a Grammy Award winner for his work with Peter Frampton, as well as a killer guitarist and a very successful songwriter. Gordon was one of three writers of the Eric Clapton hit “Change the World”. Wil and Langdon teamed up with Gordon to write “Make God First” for Ricky Skaggs, who is featured on his Grammy-nominated album Mosaic.
Wilson Fairchild performs everywhere, acoustically or with full production shows with her band. Once you listen to their music, you’re a fan. As soon as you see them in the concert, you’re a bigger fan. And as soon as you have the opportunity to meet them, you are a friend for life.
