Long before there were Kings of Leon, Keys of Black or Whites of Jack in Music City there was a riddle spewing prophet of roots rock and roll. A bluesy blast of baritone bombast. Equally versed in two glorious worlds, Rock and Roll – with a strong side of Outlaw Country. He is a force on tour and a tour de force. He is the last of the Full Grown Men and Roots Rock Royalty.
A native of Hattiesburg, and a member of the Mississippi Music Hall of Fame, Wilder crafted his signature brand of “Mid-Atlantic” (British and American) rock and roll, mixed with Country, Blues and Soul. The band’s 1986 debut album, It Came from Nashville, was named one of the 50 Best Southern Rock Albums of All-Time by Paste Magazine in 2018. Webb’s engaging personality led him to become one of America’s first Satellite DJs on XM Radio. He’s now the host of the Americana Countdown show on WMOT radio/Nashville as well as continuing his three decade career as an Electrifying Artist on stages worldwide.
