The Wilkinsons: Country music trio at Academy in late November

in The Arts by

The Wilkinsons, a Canadian country music trio from Trenton, are back touring after a six-year break.

Featuring lead singer Amanda Wilkinson, her brother Tyler Wilkinson, and their father, Steve Wilkinson, they achieved success late in 1998 with the hit single “26 Cents.”

This song went number one on the Canadian country music charts and top five hit on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles and Tracks (now Hot Country Songs) charts.

It was followed by “Fly (The Angel Song),” also number one in Canada. A second album, Here and Now, produced the group’s last American top 40 hit in “Jimmy’s Got a Girlfriend.”

Afterward, the trio recorded three more albums, one of which was not released, and a Greatest Hits package.

The Grammy-nominated trio will do their greatest hits from the family group, as well as Amanda’s solo career and the Small Town Pistols, like “26 Cents”, “No More Me & You”, and “Colour Blind.”

They’re at the Academy Theatre on Nov. 23 at 7:30 pm.
