Funeral Services Set for Leslie Wilburn

Funeral services will be held Wednesday (Jan. 19) in Brentwood, Tenn., for musician and music publisher Leslie Floyd Wilburn, 79, who died Saturday (Jan. 15) at his Nashville-area home. The Wilburn Brothers recorded and became famous as the duo of younger siblings Teddy and Doyle, but Leslie Wilburn was a member of the band on the road and on their nationally syndicated television show during the early ’60s. He also helped establish the family’s Sure Fire Music, one of the oldest independently-owned music publishing companies in Nashville.
