Raised in Knoxville, Wayne grew up listening to Hank Williams on 78-rpm records, James Brown’s Knoxville-based soul radio station WJBE, as well as rock and folk music of the 1960s and ‘70s. His musical taste knows few prejudices and he doggedly aspires to smash the prejudices of those around him. Wayne is the longtime music writer with the Knoxville News Sentinel and Scripps Howard News Service and his music features and reviews have appeared in newspapers and magazines all over the world. And, while his work has appeared in Bluegrass Now magazine, it is another music enthusiast named Wayne Bledsoe (no relation to our Wayne) who is the editor and founder of that magazine.

  1. Hello Mr. Bledsoe,

    My name is Tanner Hancock and I’m a reporter for The Daily Beacon seeking to write a feature article on the artist Lil Jon and his relation with the Knoxville community. If you could possibly put me in touch with Lil Jon or his agents, I would be very appreciative.

    Thanks in advance,
    Tanner Hancock
