Country Weekly sends its condolences to the wife and children of Tim Wilson, the stand-up comedian and songwriter best known for side-splitting tunes like “Garth Brooks Ruinied My Life,” “First Baptist Bar and Grill,” “The Nascar Song,” “I Should Have Married My Father-In-Law” and “Church League Softball Fist Fight.”
Tim died yesterday from an apparent heart attack, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Another incredible talent from Georgia, Tim had aspirations of a career in country music, but when a demo failed to produce a recording contract, he tapped his natural wit and innate timing and turned toward comedy.
A co-writer on Jeff Foxworthy’s holiday classic “The Redneck Twelve Days of Christmas,” Tim released 10 albums for Capitol Records—the same label as Garth—along with a handful of projects for indie label Southern Tracks.
Tim was a frequent visitor on The Bob & Tom Show and also appeared on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, Ron White’s Comedy Salue to the Troops and was a favorite on CMT.
