Larry Jon Wilson: RIP 

Our friend Larry Jon Wilson has passed away at the age of 69.  We had the pleasure of meeting Larry Jon Wilson in NYC in early 2002. The owner of the FloraBama Joe Gilchrist introduced us to him. This guy was the real deal when it comes to country music and songwriting. He has remained in the background but was a true legend. Check him out in Heartworn Highway- a doc about Nashville in the 70's. He was at his best alone in a room. His voice owned the place and he could make you laugh or cry whatever he wanted. We will miss him. Here's a couple videos. Watch how he owns the room in the second one. His look to camera is priceless. Enjoy.
