Johnny Blaine Wilber was born in Beaumont, Texas on April 13, 1961. He is the son of Charles Lee "Beau" Wilber and Mary Anne Christ. Johnny spent the majority of his childhood in Hamshire, Texas and graduated from Hamshire-Fannett High School in 1979.


Johnny's love for writing and singing country music was taught at an early age by his father who also played. After playing for years for his friends and the high school FFA bands he eventually won the famous Marlboro Country Star Search in Beaumont, TX. After years of playing the Southeast Texas bar scene he moved to West Texas in 1983 where he put together Johnny Blaine & The Spur Band.

 

Johnny and his Spur Band found success on many levels playing the bar room and honky-tonk circuit from LaGrange, Texas to Ruidoso, NM. He remained busy in the 80's and 90's recording some of his top hits including, "She Never Gets Mad, She Just Gets Even", "Fast Flight Back to Boston", and "Only On Paper" landing him on the Texas Country Charts. Once recognized on the Texas Country Music Charts he was then pursued by promoters as the opening acts for such legends including David Allan Coe, Willie Nelson, Billy Joe Shaver, Steve Wariner, Rusty Weir, Johnny Paycheck, and Clint Black to name a few. Johnny's music caught the ear of Nashville recording artist and producer David Frizzell who is the brother of Country Music Hall of Famer Lefty Frizzell and also the duet partner of Shelly West. David Frizzell produced Johnny's first Nashville album. Johnny is married with three sons and currently resides in Midland, Texas.

 

Johnny took several years off of playing to raise his sons but his love for music kept him writing and playing. He has once again entered the music scene where he stays consistently booked and busy performing real country music.
