The details (from wikipedia)


John Webb McMurry (born May 19, 1954), known as Webb Wilder, is an American country, rock & roll singer, guitarist and actor.

Early life

McMurry was born in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. He started playing guitar at the age of 12 and was playing in bands when he was 14.

His aunt was Lillian McMurry, the founder of Trumpet Records. She mentored him and gave advice as he started in the music industry.


With his groups like The Drapes, The Beatnecks, The Nashvegans, Wilder combines the straight-ahead rock & roll with surf guitar of the Ventures and twang of Duane Eddy, drawing on the feel of blues, R&B, country/rockabilly and film noir. His sound incorporated influence from Americana music as well as from the British Invasion.

Wilder said that his music was progressive country. He has been signed to major labels and worked with independent labels. He has also hosted a radio show for Sirius Radio.

Webb Wilder appeared as an actor in Peter Bogdanovich's 1993 feature film The Thing Called Love. As of 2020, he was an afternoon-shift disc jockey for radio station WMOT, which is based in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
