Musician, Singer, Songwriter. Wendy learned to play her father’s banjo at an early age. Her father took her to Nashville, Tennessee, for her 12th birthday. While window shopping, Wendy picked up a banjo and started playing “Foggy Mountain Breakdown.” Roni Stoneman’s bass player heard her. The next night Wendy played on the Ernest Tubb’s Midnight Jamboree. A month later in December 1975, Wendy played on the Grand Ole Opry. By the time she was 13, Wendy was playing in “Nashville on the Road” with Jim Ed Brown and Jerry Clower. (bio by: Imagine)
