Fred Wilhelm is an award-winning songwriter/singer originally from New England. He grew up on a family farm where his duties included feeding the chickens and carting out a wheelbarrow of cow manure every day before school. The latter experience has proved extremely useful in the music business.

Although his songs have been recorded by a multitude of multiplatinum superstars (like Rascal Flatts, Lindsay Ell, Walker Hayes, Faith Hill, Little Big Town, Trace Adkins, Randy Travis and more), as well as highly revered Americana artists (like Lori McKenna, Matthew Perryman Jones, Mindy Smith and others), featured in film and television, and played on stages the world over, he considers his greatest professional accomplishment to be avoiding a day job since 1999. He is a prolific writer, creating well over 100 copyrights a year, and a regular performer at The Bluebird Cafe and other listening rooms.
