ARTIST PROFILE | Wheeler Walker, Jr.

Country
That sound you hear is the entire city of Nashville wetting their pants – some in excitement, most in fear – because Wheeler Walker Jr. is back. After months in legal limbo due to his involvement in the January 6th 2021 Capital riot, Wheeler’s release of his album, “Sex, Drugs & Country Music” has many claiming it is already the greatest country album of all time.
Since he disappeared 4 years ago, many thought Wheeler was finished.  But a strange thing happened after he left - he only got bigger!  His mystique grew, his popularity surged and his music was consumed to such an extreme that he was the 3rd most streamed country artist in the world in 2021. (A fact Music Row is trying to keep quiet… artists that speak their minds have a tendency to be ignored by Nashville’s top brass).  His fanbase grew exponentially as well.  Count among his new fans Killer Mike, Snoop Dogg... and even another “poet of his generation” …
Wheeler blushes and laughs at the mention of Bob Dylan.  “How’d you find that out!  I didn’t tell anybody!  Must’ve been someone on his side who leaked it.”  When pressed for more details, Wheeler continues… “When Bob Dylan calls you it’s not like when a normal person calls… it’s an event.  It’s planned.  You have to wait by the phone, a bunch of his people get you ready… and then Dylan gets on and just laughs and he told me he ‘got it’ and he’s a huge fan and listens to my albums on repeat. I love Dylan, and it was cool, but he’s just a human.  No different to me than when Billy Joe Shaver called me up a few years back.  I stole more licks from Billy Joe, so that one might’ve been even cooler, all things considered.”
Out of the touring game for almost half a decade, Wheeler decided to celebrate the new record with a show at the Ryman, “the mother church of country music.”
“When I started, I was told they’d never let me play there, and if I did, I’d only sell ten tickets.  Then I sold the place out in 24 hours” Wheeler brags.  He continues, “If it pisses people off, good.  More people should be pissed off about the sorry state of country music today.”
One listen through “Sex, Drugs & Country” reveals where Wheeler’s unrivaled confidence comes from.  Once again produced by Dave Cobb (except the song “God Told Me To Fuck You,” which was produced by someone else) and recorded at historic RCA Studio A, the album is a loud, unapologetic roar of a comeback.  Wheeler explains, “I figured if I’m gonna save country music, why not save Rock ‘n’ Roll too while I’m at it?”
Then Wheeler gets serious: “The last couple of years have been tough.  We lost Billy Joe.  We lost Norm.  I lost a lot of people close to me.  But they wouldn’t want me to make a downer of an album.  No one wants to hear another sad album about the pandemic or Adele’s stupid divorce that no one cares about.”
With songs like “Fucked By a Country Boy,” “Sluts In Heaven” and “Honky Tonk Whore,” nobody’s going to have to worry that Ol’ Wheeler’s gone soft.
Then Wheeler cuts to the chase: “I haven’t become the hottest thing in Nashville because everybody else here sucks.  They do, and that certainly helps.  But I’ve become the biggest name in country music because I’m the best one doing it.  I used to be the best, and now I’m even better.  Which even I didn’t think was possible.”
 Try listening to his music without shitting your pants.  We dare you.
