Since 1996, he has played lead guitar for renowned songwriter John Prine. His work with Prine includes two Grammy nominated albums: In Spite of Ourselves, which spent 32 weeks on the Billboard Country Charts, and Prine’s newest release, Fair & Square. In 1988 Wilber released a CD of his own songs, Lost In Your Hometown, and followed that up in 2000 with Behind the Midway.
