Got the sad news today from Jerry DeCicca that Georgia-born singer and songwriter extraordinaire Larry Jon Wilson passed away. Larry Jon was probably my favorite interview subject of all time, and his self-titled Drag City debut topped my 2009 list. It was as much a joy to talk with the man on the phone as it was to listen to his music. I was looking forward to the day I could see Larry Jon Wilson in person, but his music will have to do. And do, it will. Rest in peace, Larry Jon.
Update: More details from the Tennessean.
