Lonnie Wilson, Drums

Lonnie Wilson has won the Academy of Country Music's "Drummer of the Year" award twice and Music Row Magazine's "Top Studio Drummer" award four times. He has played on countless hits with artists that include Brooks and Dunn, Faith Hill, George Jones, Martina McBride, Rascal Flats, Randy Travis and Waylon Jennings. He's played on 19 No. 1 singles for Tim McGraw alone!

Wilson's parents and uncle are all musicians, so he's had a sense of what makes a great song from a young age. In the 1980's, Lonnie was the lead singer for the group "Bandana." However, the desire to start a family with his wife Donna, (a backup singer for Loretta Lynn at the time) led him to the life of a studio musician. His singer-songwriter sensibilities served him well in understanding how to build a song, and deliver the energy that the producers and artists were after. He got in on the ground floor with Brooks and Dunn, and played on their monster hit "Boot Scootin' Boogie." This helped cement him as the hottest drummer in Nashville. As a songwriter he has written for Rascal Flatts, Brooks and Dunn, Joe Diffie and Andy Griggs. Hit singles he's produced include "A Night To Remember," "It's Always Something New" and the self-penned "Texas Size Heartache."
