Stephen Wilson Jr.

Date: July 24, 2023
Time: 7:30 PM
The Washington County Fair is delighted to have Stephen Wilson Jr. performing on the Main Stage, Monday, July 24.

Wilson is a singer/songwriter from rural Southern Indiana. Self-described as “Death Cab For Country,” Stephen Wilson Jr. draws upon Indie Rock, Grunge, and Country to create a distinct sound that is influenced by artists as diverse as The National, Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp, and Nirvana.

The self-taught guitarist moved to Nashville to pursue a degree in Microbiology at MTSU, where he started Indie Rock band AutoVaughn after finishing his degree. After five years of touring the world as lead guitarist with AutoVaughn, Wilson turned his creative focus toward songwriting and singing. He signed a publishing deal with BMG Nashville in 2016. His songs were soon recorded by acts like Caitlyn Smith, Brothers Osborne, Old Dominion, MacKenzie Porter, Sixpence None the Richer and Leigh Nash. Wilson went on to self-release several songs of his own including, The Devil, Year To Be Young 1994, The Beginning, Holler From The Holler - which won 6 independent film festival awards for its accompanying music video - and billy, which caught the attention of Billboard who featured the single in its ‘Makin’ Tracks’ column. Wilson went on to tour the US and Europe with acts like Brothers Osborne, Midland, and Cadillac Three developing a global base of music fans enamored by his emotive performance, skilled guitar prowess, and powerful vocals.

This will be a free show on the Main Stage.
