NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Sept. 26, 2023) —  Wilson Fairchild, the country music duo composed of cousins Langdon Reid and Wil Reid (sons of the Statler Brothers’ Don Reid and Harold Reid, respectively), is set to deliver a 12-track album, Statler Made, on Jan. 12, 2024, via Gaither Music Group.

The album—recorded at Nashville’s Treasure Isle Studio and produced by Michael Sykes and Johnny Minick—will be accompanied by a DVD/TV special, hosted by Grand Ole Opry announcer and WSM host Bill Cody.

Langdon Reid says, "This is the album we've always wanted to do. It represents and showcases exactly who we are as artists from the genres of music to how we approached and recorded each song. Our producers and the musicians felt the fun and energy from the first note and didn't let up until that last cymbal. We are grateful and blessed to be a part of the Gaither Music family!" 

Adds Wil Reid, “This project just feels right at this point in time to honor some great music and some great folks that have inspired us our whole lives. From country to gospel, Statler Made is literally what made us. Hopefully we have brought some new life to the music and just may be able to share it with new generations that may have never heard these tunes the first time!”

The TV special will premiere across multiple networks beginning January 11 and will air weekly on numerous channels including PBS, RFD-TV, Trinity Broadcasting Network and many others throughout the United States. In Canada, the special will air on networks including Vision, The Miracle Channel and Hope TV.

Songs from the recording will be featured on Gaither Radio on Pandora, Gaither Radio on Amazon and Gaither Radio on Spotify. A Statler Made special premiere and the individual videos from the filming will be released on the Gaither Music TV YouTube channel (3 million subscribers). Songs from the recording will air on numerous playlists, including Apple Music’s Front Porch Country Gospel collections.

About Wilson Fairchild:
Wilson Fairchild is a country music duo made up of Wil and Langdon Reid from Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley. These two men, referred to as “the Reid boys,” have been writing, performing and playing music together their whole lives. They come by their “entertainment chops” honestly: Wil’s dad is Harold Reid and Langdon’s dad is Don Reid of the legendary Statler Brothers.

Both highly acclaimed songwriters, Wil and Langdon have been writing songs and playing guitar since their teenage years and have written with chart toppers like Bryan Kennedy (Garth Brooks), Gordon Kennedy (Peter Frampton), Jeff Hyde (Eric Church) and more. Along with recording their own music, Ricky Skaggs, Dailey & Vincent and the Statler Brothers have recorded their songs. Their songwriting gamut spans the country, bluegrass and gospel fields. They learned from the best and are no strangers to knowing how to put an idea to music and come away with a great, storytelling song. 

In 2018, Wil and Langdon started their own non-profit organization, Happy Birthday America, a two-day event July 3-4 in their hometown, Staunton, VA. Each year it grows, attracting thousands to come celebrate America in a small-town, big-time way!

Wil and Langdon opened for the late George Jones for nearly four years, have graced the stage of the Grand Ole Opry and have been featured on Larry’s Country Diner on RFD-TV. They continue carrying on a family legacy of great music, high energy performances and pure entertainment. They bridge the years from traditional country music to today. To sum up their passion and drive for their music and career, a self-penned line from their song “Country On” says it all: “We love country music and we’ll never let it die.” 

About Gaither Music Group:
One of the largest independent Christian music companies in the world and a household name for millions of fans, Gaither Music Group (Gaither Music, Sun Records, Green Hill, emeraldwave), in partnership with Primary Wave Music Publishing, is known worldwide for its award-winning and top-selling recordings including the Gaither Gospel Series, of which 133 products have been certified gold, platinum or multi-platinum.

The Gaither Music Group brand has partnered with established artists including Whitney Houston, Sandi Patty, Gloria Gaynor, Steven Curtis Chapman and a host of acclaimed talent from various fields of music. Gaither Music Group has garnered sales of more than 40 million DVDs and CDs, including such PBS stalwarts as Billy Graham: God’s Ambassador, the only authorized video autobiography of Reverend Billy Graham; The Gospel Music of Johnny Cash; and three Elvis Presley projects, including He Touched Me and The Gospel Music of Elvis Presley, in conjunction with the Elvis Presley Estate.

Gaither Music Group developed a strategic partnership with Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® in 2008; and its alliances with Capitol Christian Music Group, Virgin Music Label & Artist Services, Universal Music Group and Time Life Music remain bedrocks for the company. Most recently, the Gaither Music TV YouTube channel crossed the 3 Billion life-to-date streaming benchmark and hosts more than 3 Million subscribers.
