Devastated to hear that Craig Wilson passed away today. Though I only met Craig last year when I first moved to TN, he was monumental in writing three of my original songs with me; including “The Hell I Won’t”

From the moment I met him, I knew he was the best of the best. A genuinely nice guy, an off-the-charts songwriter, musician, and producer. I was hoping to write more songs together in the future… you always think they’ll be more time. 

Rest easy, friend. I will cherish the time I spent in your presence and be forever grateful for your touch on my songs.

Man, I was having a really $hitty night. Reality just smacked me in the face. My perspective has shifted. I just saw that Craig Wilson passed away unexpectedly. I admired Craig most of all for being an authentic nice man. He cheered on everyone he came in contact with. He was talented, humble, and kind. May you rest in peace. Your loss on this earth is leaving many hearts broken. See you on the other side.

Just got word that an old friend & colleague of mine has passed away unexpectedly. Completely shocked! Craig Wilson toured a bit through Texas with me in 2017 playing keys. We also got together several times to do some songwriting. He was always such a positive, welcoming, loving & kind soul who absolutely loved music.

Ironically, I just thought earlier this week that I should reach out and see if he wanted to get together but never made the call.

The last co-write we did together was in 2017. We wrote a song about wanting to hold on to the night & not face tomorrow. It was titled “Dear Moon”. Here are the lyrics from that write. RIP my friend.

My buddy Derek let me know this afternoon about the passing of a mutual friend that has just taken all the wind out of my sails. Craig Wilson was such a sweet soul. Mr. Disney as we called him, he was incredibly talented but more than that he was just a sweetheart. Craig, you will be missed my friend, please join me in sending lots of love and heart-healing prayers to his family and friends.
