Gadsden, AL (May 9, 2014) In a world where words often have double meaning, kind of like a Bass singer and catching a Bass on a fishing line Wilburn and Wilburn has also taken on new meaning. For the past few years Wilburn and Wilburn has meant father and son singing together. It seems now it means cousins playing together.
Jonathan Wilburn the father half of Wilburn and Wilburn joyously stated “It’s double trouble in the Wilburn household. It’s all because there are two brand new Wilburn and Wilburn fans. Marley Lynn Wilburn and Julia Elaine Vines have finally made their grand entrance into the world. I never knew that having grandbabies could put such a big smile on my face.”
Marley is a St. Patrick’s Day baby. She was born on March 17, 2014 at 5:21 pm at St. Vincent’s Hospital in Birmingham, Alabama. Marley is the daughter of Jordan and Lauren Wilburn. According to her dad, she came out showcasing a strong set of lungs. Marley weighed 7 lbs 7 oz and was 19 1/2 inches long with a head full of dark hair. Marley is named after her maternal grandmother, Lynn.
Julia Elaine Vines made her a debut appearance just a few days before Mother’s Day. There’s no greater gift than that. Julia was born May 8, 2014 at 7:56 pm at St. Vincent’s Hospital in Birmingham, Alabama. Julia is the daughter of Dexter Vines and Jessica Wilburn Vines. She weighed 6 lbs 15 oz and was 20 inches long with beautiful blonde hair. Julia is named after her maternal great grandmother, Elaine Wilburn, who is a staple name in Southern Gospel Music.
With these two baby girls being born just 7 1/2 weeks apart, it is no doubt that a forever friendship is in their future. Will these two make a new addition to Wilburn or Wilburn, or part two of the dynamic duo? I guess we all need to stay tuned.

Jonathan spent the first 16 years of his Southern Gospel Music career singing with his family, the Wilburns, one of Gospel Music’s most beloved and respected families.
