Gadsden, ALÂ â€“ Chart-topping duo, Wilburn & Wilburn, has announced changes for the upcoming season. Â Jordan Wilburn, one half of the father/son group, has decided to step back from an intensive tour schedule to focus on his young family. Â His father and recent GMA Hall of Fame inductee, Jonathan Wilburn, will honor previously scheduled dates, and continue to travel as a solo artist.
“I have had the pleasure of enduring many changes in my career; nothing stays the same,â€ shares Jonathan Wilburn. “With every change, there is an opportunity to do something different and new. There is nothing like family. I enjoyed every minute traveling with my son for the past several years before it was time to enter into a new season. Jordan is spending some time off the road at home with his wife and two of my grandbabies! I hope to see all of you at one of my solo concerts in the near future, and I sincerely appreciate the love and support you have shown me through every transition.â€
