Grammy Award winner Joe Thompson

Wilson County, as a music incubator, is home to many stellar musicians, and among them is Grammy Award winner Joe Thompson. Thompson continues the proud tradition of bringing music industry awards to Wilson County by achieving his third Grammy win with the Fairfield  Four, a gospel harmony group which has been in existence more than 90 years. The Fairfield Four won the honor for Best Gospel Roots Album in the 2016 Grammy Awards in February. But that is not the only honor that Thompson is celebrating, as Wilson County Convention and Visitor’s Bureau Director Terri Merryman explains.
