Wilson Fairchild 

When: Sat., July 2, 12 a.m. 2011
Broadcast live every Saturday night for over 60 years, The Ernest Tubb Midnite Jamboree remains one of the last places you can hear country music as it was before Garth and Taylor changed it forever. Tonight's Jamboree features a duo with an impeccable country pedigree. Wil and Langdon Reid are cousins who grew up in a country music family as sons of Harold and Don Reid of the great country novelty group The Statler Brothers. Formerly known as Grandstaff, they recently changed their name to Wilson Fairchild. Their 2008 tribute to The Statlers, "The Statler Brothers Song," is an amazing piece of work: "Accepted your awards and always thanked the Lord/In tuxedos and patent-leather shoes," they sing. They've written perceptively about Southern sociology in "She Don't Love Me More Than NASCAR." Their harmonies are sharp and their playing first-rate — sometimes traditionalists have more fun.
