Dislikes: Being teased or judged for his last name, prejudice and discrimination against foxes, being called Al, anyone else touching his guitar
Personality: He's slow to speak, quick to listen, slow to judge, fun-loving, always striving to be nicer and stronger. He's very devoted to those over him and to those he loves, will sacrifice himself for anyone in a heartbeat, and he's loyal and loving. On the other hand, he can be stubborn, mischievous, and is a risk-taker. Because he was raised by foxes, he absolutely cannot stand to see a fox being mistreated, nor can he stand any anti-fox comments or remarks; he takes them very personally.
History: He was born on October 18, 1975 to Melissa Hartley. She was in an unstable relationship with her baby's father and didn't want to raise the baby alone, so she put him up for adoption, wanting him to have a stable two-parent home full of support.
A couple months later, Ron and Juniper Wilde, who had one kid and were having trouble trying to have another, came in and adopted him, but not without some difficulty. After they brought him home, their 9-year-old daughter Vivica was excited and happy to have a little brother, even though he was a different species. She even helped her parents put little Alan's room together.
During Alan's school years he was picked on and teased a lot for being raised by foxes, and was frequently in trouble both at home and at school. He got physical whenever someone teased him too much or made an anti-fox remark that crossed the line. Whenever he wasn't grounded he would listen to music after school to try and deal with his emotions.
At age 23, Ron and Juniper got Alan his first guitar for Christmas, and he began teaching himself how to play it. His adoptive parents encouraged him as he progressed musically. After watching the country music awards on TV at age 24, Alan wanted to perform onstage. With Juniper's help, he performed at a local bar, singing two songs by country-music greats John Antlerson and Tracy Clawson. He then began performing at local fairs and talent contests, as well as several local clubs. He became the resident performer at a local honky-tonk bar. After one of his performances, the head of writer relations at a music sales group recommended Alan to a friend at a major music group by saying: "I met this buck today from the Meadowlands. He’s a good singer, a good songwriter, and more than anything, I think you’re going to really like him."
Alan performed for the guy's friend, playing five songs during the audition; their reaction was enthusiastic, telling a music magazine, "First of all I was attracted to the songs, because I thought that he painted great pictures in his lyrics, particularly for someone who had not been around the typical country co-writes. I thought that he sang very well too. But more than anything there was a kind of this ‘I-will-do-it’ look in his eyes - I was really drawn in by the fact that he was so set on being successful in this business."
Alan left the audition with a songwriter's contract. A year later, an appearance at a songwriter’s showcase led to a contract with Dirt Road Records. Alan told Ron, Juniper, and Vivica the news, and they were very ecstatic.
His self-titled debut album was released a year after. The CD's lead-off singles reached the lower regions of the music charts. It sold about 10,000 copies before Dirt Road Records folded. Alan then signed with another record company, releasing his second album soon after. That CD produced three singles, two of which reached the Top 10. Over the following years he released several more albums.
One night while performing at an outdoor music festival, he noticed a lynx in the audience violently shove a female fox. Alan stopped playing, and motioned for his bandmates to stop as well. He yelled into the mic, "Hey, fleabag that just pushed a fox in the face, get the hell out!", then motioned for security guards to kick the lynx out. Afterward, he left the stage to help the fox that had been pushed. After consoling her and making sure she was alright, he gave her an autographed copy of one of his CDs, along with his phone number. Since that night the two have been good friends, and have recently started dating.
