Statler Made is an album that reaches across generations, pleasing fans of evergreen roots music while sharing with a new audience American classics they may never have heard before.
Last week the guys popped into the beloved WSM morning show, “Coffee, Country & Cody,” featuring Country Music Disc Jockey Hall of Famer, Grand Ole Opry announcer and affable television personality Bill Cody. Cody also hosts Wilson Fairchild’s new DVD and TV special, which will re-air on multiple networks the week of April 13.

Cousins Langdon Reid and Wil Reid (sons of the Statler Brothers’ Don Reid and Harold Reid, respectively) of Wilson Fairchild have been playing music together for 20-plus years. They grew up producing their own records and booking their own shows. Statler Made is a defining album in that it explores the music the guys grew up loving through their distinct blend of country and gospel musicality. It was recorded at Nashville’s Treasure Isle Studio and produced by Michael Sykes and Johnny Minick.
