Chanteur et guitariste Country né le 7 Octobre 1940 à Swainsboro (Georgie). Larry Jon Wilson est décédé le 21 Juin 2010 à Roanoke (Virginie).

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).
Despite Wilson's accolades and fans, no hit record emerged. Wilson left the music industry in 1980. He returned in the late 1980s when other songwriters encouraged him to attend the Frank Brown International Songwriter's Festival in Perdido Key, Florida. He began touring again in 1989, and by 2003 still accepted occasional engagements. Wilson remained devoted to his music, rather than to the marketplace.
Wilson appears in the 1981 documentary film Heartworn Highways where he is filmed recording the song "Ohoopee River Bottomland".
In 2008, Sony BMG released a new Wilson album, after a thirty year hiatus from recording. In 2009, Drag City re-released the album in the US.
Wilson died, following a stroke in June 2010, at the age of 69.
