Webb Wilder

Webb Wilder has long been a fixture on the Nashville rock scene. With his deep baritone voice, rocking guitar sound and humorous onstage patter, Webb has developed a national roots rock following. His nine albums include It Came From Nashville, Doo Dad and Born to Be Wilder. His style is summed up in the Webb Wilder Credo: “Work hard, rock hard, eat hard, sleep hard, grow big. Wear glasses if you need ’em.” See other music artists talking about trees...
