Aaron Wilburn was born in Alabama and early in his life realized he had a dream to be a songwriter…he has more than accomplished that with # 1 songs, multiple “Song of The Year” nominations and awards, Dove Awards and Grammy Nominations…resulting in his inclusion in the Alabama Music Hall of Fame in Muscle Shoals, Alabama.
Little did the young dreamer know that someday his wit and humor would make him one of the most beloved humorist/comedians, not only to the Christian world, but also in the secular world with millions of Youtube views. In the gospel music world he is undoubtedly, “The King of Youtube!”
His travels with the Gaither Homecoming Tour and Gaither Videos brought Aaron to the attention of millions who immediately fell in love with his down-home southern humor and the stories from everyday life. Whether he’s talking about the culture of his beloved southern upbringing, family life, the fashions of today, or the experiences of being over 40, the audience connects with him and his take on life.
The songs he has brought to his audience such as, If My Nose Was Running Money-I’d Blow It All On You , Puttin’ On the Dog, and Cat’s In the Kettle have brought a huge following. It’s common to see a grandfather laughing along with teen-agers and children at his concerts. As Aaron says, “There is no generation gap with laughter”.
Since a kidney transplant in May of 2010, with his tremendous testimony of a second chance at life, Aaron has become an ambassador from the stage for the Kidney Foundation. Even with such a serious subject, he will have you in stitches, as he tells of the results in his life from having a female kidney…he finds laughter, and he finds joy in every situation, and you will find inspiration, and hope in the humor/comedy of Aaron Wilburn.
Whether he is on stage in an arena surrounded by 15,000 or in a banquet setting for a corporation or church, Aaron Wilburn is at home. If you tell him, “I loved your act”, he’ll probably tell you, “That’s no act, that’s who I am!” To borrow his famous three words, “He’s funny! Bless his heart!”
