The Inescapable Presence of Stephen Wilson Jr

Introducing Stephen Wilson Jr

Nashville-based singer/songwriter Stephen Wilson Jr.

On first encounter, he might be Big Country, Chart Country – Pickups, Beer, Loyal Hound, Lost Love, you know the territory that this site does not usually inhabit.

BUT, there may be more to it than that.

His 2023 debut album søn of dad is striking and epic. Released five years to the day of his father’s death, it is a whopping twenty-two-song tribute to Stephen Wilson Sr. that channels all sides of Stephen Wilson Jr. – a scientist with a degree in microbiology and chemistry from Middle Tennessee State University, a boxer trained by his single father who himself was a two-time Indiana State Golden Gloves Champion, a songwriter, and, most importantly, a son. 

The album response has been remarkable. Plus, Wilson has released a series of acoustic videos for songs from the album, including “Cuckoo,” which has garnered over 6.5 million views on Instagram, “Year To Be Young (1994)”, which has 3.6 million and “All The Wars From Now On” which has over one million.

Last year, Wilson made his Grand Ole Opry, Stagecoach Festival, Ryman Auditorium, CMA Fest and Red Rocks debuts and has shared the stage with The Lone Bellow, Midland, Drake White, Larry Fleet, Charley Crockett, 49 Winchester and Joss Stone.

Wilson has some dates in Europe and will be touring widely across the US this year – dates via the link below.
