Although they’re based in Nashville, Wild Ponies have always looked to Southwest Virginia — where bandmates Doug and Telisha Williams were both born and raised — for inspiration. There, in mountain towns like Galax, old-time American music continues to thrive, supported by a community of fiddlers, flat-pickers, and fans.
Warren Gently was born in Alabama and raised by wild dogs in the forest until found by Gypsies who rescued him and taught him to play music. When he lost his adopted family in a tragic crash on the Hurricane Bridge, he was taken in by an elderly African American gentleman who nursed him back to health and gave him a $3 guitar. The rest is history.
Jay grew up in Winchester, Tennessee, near where the western escarpment of the Cumberland Plateau crosses from Tennessee into Alabama. His dad was a Cumberland Presbyterian minister for 42 years. His mom an English teacher. Church played a huge roll in Jay’s upbringing. It was in the church where Jay learned to sing & in the mountains where he felt closest to God. Jay wrote his first song in 1990.
Greg Horne has written songs and played guitar, fiddle and several other string instruments for over 25 years. His songs show a passion for roots sounds from old time to honky tonk and rock, and a desire to do more than clone the past. Maintaining dual careers as a performer and teacher, he has written over a dozen instructional books published internationally by Alfred Music. In recent years he released an electric band album, “Working on Engines,” taught songwriting workshops in Montana and toured with Nashville Americana band Wild Ponies.
