WHO ARE THE YOUNG FABLES?
A great way to get to know us in a flash, is to watch the two videos below. They highlight how our latest upcoming record "OLD SONGS" came to be and a good view of how we got there!
The Young Fables are the promising Modern Traditional Country duo comprised of three-time American Idol vet Laurel Wright and accomplished guitarist and vocalist Wesley Lunsford. The act hails from Maryville, TN and the team has already collected impressive accolades including the Grand Prize of the Texaco Country Showdown which landed Laurel on the Ryman Auditorium Stage at age 16. The Young Fables have shared appearances with Lauren Alaina, Josh Turner, Sarah Siskind, Sara Evans, Chris Janson, Randy Houser, The Band Perry, Chris Lane, and Erik Baker as well as many other prominent names in the industry.
Today, The Young Fables can be found playing all over the country supporting their debut release “TWO”, as well as gracing the pages of many country music columns including the world renown "The Boot”. Laurel and Wes are recognized for their prolific online presence, featuring numerous video collections, including the fan favorite “Covering Your Tracks” series. Since winning the Nashville finals of NASH FM’s countrywide NASH NEXT competition, the radio giant has embraced the duo as an America's Morning Show favorite, regularly highlighting The Young Fables' songwriting strength in the Ten Minute Tune segment.
It is not hard to understand why Laurel and Wes have been turning heads. Country music staple Keith Urban claims Laurel’s voice “had me immediately” and BIG MACHINE CEO, Scott Borchetta went as far as to label her tone and control,“a flawless vocal”.
