Rickie Joe Wilson is a beacon of hope for fans of country music, since he is probably the only artist in the industry today who pays due diligence to his roots, but still keeps every new release fresh, edgy, and compelling. His songs are always anchored by the exceptional lyricism that he brings to the table, drawing from his own experiences of loss, and eventual redemption. His story is also the story of addiction, of recovery, of faith, of love, and of loss, and he uses these powerful and poignant prompts to set the tone for the underlying message in his latest single. It is now common knowledge that Rickie Joe Wilson was a practicing drug addict for 25 years. He cleaned up and got sober in 2003, and then spent 13 years in ministry taking his message of a faith driven recovery to numerous prisons and jails.
Today, Rickie Joe Wilson uses the unique name brand he has crafted for himself to inspire and give hope to all those who feel lost and abandoned. In 2018, he moved to Florida with Teresa, his wife of 32 years, and his five small adopted children who now tour together The Emerald Coast with Rickie’s solo Hillbilly Rock and Roll Show.
