For Georgia-bred country artist Channing Wilson, writing great songs means living each day with an immense depth of empathy, curiosity, and devotion to inspiration. “A songwriter can’t live 50 lifetimes—but if he’s worth his weight in anything, he’d better be able to write like he has,” Wilson says. With his past triumphs including penning songs for heavy-hitters like Luke Combs—as well as sharing bills with the likes of Steve Earle, Billy Joe Shaver, and Robert Earl Keen—Wilson now brings his warmly nuanced truth-telling to his long-awaited debut album Dead Man. Produced by eight-time Grammy-winner Dave Cobb (Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton), the result is a timeless and truly singular body of work, revealing Wilson’s rare gift for turning the most painful aspects of the human condition into songs of life-affirming beauty.
The first album ever recorded at Cobb’s new studio in Savannah, Dead Man embodies a bare-bones yet hard-hitting sound perfectly suited to the uncompromising character of Wilson’s songwriting. In laying down its 10 thrillingly raw but finely crafted tracks, Wilson worked with a stellar lineup of musicians including guitarist Leroy Powell (Shooter Jennings, Cody Jinks), bassist Brian Allen (Lori McKenna, Chris Shiflett), and drummer Chris Powell (Brandi Carlile, The Highwomen), drawing abundant inspiration from the classic work of country legends like Willie Nelson. “Those are the kinds of records I’m going after, more than trying to push boundaries with the production,” says Wilson. “My whole intention was to just capture the song the way it should be.”
