      Country comedian and musician Tim Wilson has died of a heart attack. He was only 52. Wilson's manager says his friend died Wednesday night in Columbus, Georgia, which was his home.

      Wilson was best known for his hit single "Garth Brooks Ruined My Life." He also co-wrote Jeff Foxworthy's"The Redneck Twelve Days of Christmas." Wilson spent much of his career in Atlanta and often headlined at The Punchline Comedy Club. Wilson was also a regular on the comedy club circuit, and was scheduled to appear this weekend at the Hoover Stardome. Stardome owner Bruce Ayres says that Wilson was known for his ability to engage an audience. Ayres says comedy club owners across the country are organizing a fundraiser to benefit Wilson's family. He is survived by his ex-wife and two children.
