Larry Jon Wilson (October 7, 1940 – June 21, 2010) was an American country singer, guitarist and musician. He recorded "Through the Eyes of Little Children" and "I Betcha Heaven's on a Dirt Road". Born in Swainsboro, Georgia, Wilson picked up the guitar and taught himself how to play. In 1975, he released his debut album New Beginnings. Three more albums on the Monument record label imprint of CBS Records followed, Let Me Sing My Song to You (1976), Loose Change (1977), and The Sojourner (1979).
Larry Jon Wilson was a late bloomer. Born in Georgia in 1940, he didn't learn to play guitar until he was 30, and he didn't go into music full-time until he was 34. He signed with Monument (Roy Orbison's former label) and released four well-praised albums in the late 1970s. To call Wilson's new self-titled album on Drag City a comeback seems misleading: He had no hit albums and little notoriety beyond a small circle of admirers, and it's likely this record will yield no hits nor expand his popularity beyond a new generation of admirers. Besides, his time in the industry constitutes such a slight portion of his life that Larry Jon Wilson sounds less like a years-in-the-making follow-up than a culmination of the solo live shows he's been playing since before you were born.
An associate of the country outlaw generation that included Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark, Larry Jon Wilson's burly baritone burr brought tableaux like "Ohoopee River Bottomland" and "Sheldon Church Yard" to vivid life, but his refusal to compromise curtailed his Seventies career after just a few albums. He even harboured reluctance about this comeback album, which he insisted on doing "with no sticks and no plugs"
Album · 2009 · 12 Songs. After decades in a sort of self-imposed exile, Wilson was coaxed out of hiding by singer/songwriters Jerry DeCicca (Black Swans) and Jeb Loy Nichols for what would be his swan song; he died two years after its 2008 release
