Tim Wilson died Wednesday night in Nashville, TN of a heart attack. He is known for the comedic wit that he displayed in his stand-up comedy acts and through his comedy songs. Songs like "Garth Brooks Ruined My Life" and songs he co-wrote with other artists such as "The Redneck Twelve Days of Christmas". His career achievements have placed him in the company of country comedians like Jeff Foxworthy and Larry the Cable Guy.
As reported by A Taste of Country, Wilson grew up in Georgia aspiring to become a musician. However, when demo attempts yielded no success he went on to do stand-up comedy. His first big break in the entertainment business came in 1990 after appearing on the 'The Tonight Show'. Wilson also made regular appearances on country radio stations, in particular, a syndicated morning radio show the "Bob and Tom Show".
NBC's Motor Sports Talk reported on Wilson's love of NASCAR and his contributions to the sport through his free wheeling style of comedy songs. Wilson has released numerous comedy song albums with the latest one being 'Caffeine Wired, Nervous & Pale' in 2013. He leaves behind a wife and two children, many admiring colleagues, and adoring fans.
