Wynn came to love country music at a very young age. He discovered his father’s collection of classic country albums. He even traded his big brother’s “Grand Funk Railroad” for a copy of Jimmy Dean’s “Big Bad John”. He still has a scar to prove it. Around the age of 14, a neighbor named Ned Smith showed him a few chords on an old guitar. As soon as Wynn learned a few chords, he began to write his own songs.
Wynn says Willie Nelson taught him the rest from the “Red Headed Stranger” album.
After many years of playing in honkytonks, bars and feed store parking lots, he decided to make the move to Nashville. His first radio single was “Fit to Be Tied Down” by Sammy Kershaw. Since then he has had dozens of hits including three number ones…all three were nominated as Song of The Year by either CMA or ACM and sometimes both. Those songs are: “Have You Forgotten” by Darryl Worley, “Waitin’ on A Woman” by Brad Paisley, and “I’m A Little More Country Than That” recorded by Easton Corbin.
Wynn received Nashville Songwriters Association’s Songwriter of the Year Award in 2009. Wynn has three songs on the new Garth Brooks CD “Man Against Machine”, including the current hit single, “Mom”.
Wynn made his Grand Ole Opry debut in 2011. He has appeared on reality shows and currently has a weekly spot on the Joey and Rory Show on RFD TV.
Wynn still writes songs every day and tours extensively. His latest CD “Portrait of My Father” has just been released. It is available on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, and CD Baby. Wynn is currently with BMG Music Publishing.
