Biography

Fiddle player Wanda Vick grew up in Montevallo, Alabama where she started out playing dobro with a family trio, playing in local bluegrass bands and entering fiddle, banjo, guitar, mandolin and dobro contests. At one of these contests she met Buddy Spicher, who invited her to Nashville to play on a Buddy Spicher, Benny Martin album.

She played with the Nashville Superpickers before landing her first full time professional gig with Lynn Anderson in 1981. Wanda then went on to start the five piece all-female band Wild Rose, recording three studio albums with three charted singles and nominations for both Academy of Country Music and Grammy awards.

As well as Lynn Anderson, Wanda has toured with Porter Wagoner, Ronnie Milsap, and Wild Rose. In the house band on TNN′s “Music City Tonight” and then “Prime Time Country” she backed up nearly every artist in Country music, from Dolly Parton, to Loretta Lynn, to Shania Twain. This led to recording sessions with George Jones, Trisha Yearwood, Travis Tritt, Billy Ray Cyrus, Uncle Kracker, Micheal English, and Sandi Patti, to name a few.
