The CD and digital version will be released on December 16th. Live at the Ryman includes songs from Lonely Is A Lifetime and The Wild Feathers’ 2013 self-titled debut.
The Wild Feathers are one of the most respected bands on the live circuit today due to their formidable songwriting chops, soulful vocals and a penchant for guitar-driven, melodic sensibilities (they have three gifted songwriters & lead vocalists within their ranks) and reputation as a powerful live band. For the past few years, TWF have toured the world nearly non-stop and have won the hearts of critical and fans each time they perform:
The Wild Feathers… harmony-heavy and guitar-filled, like the soundtrack to a road trip across Middle America.” — Rolling Stone
“The Wild Feathers released their second album, ‘Lonely Is A Lifetime.’ With three singers, its easy to draw vocals comparisons to Crosby, Stills & Nash, while the electric guitar work reminds one of Neil Young and Pink Floyd.” — USA Today
“The Wild Feathers have a way of channeling the influential spirit of their musical predecessors, creating a feeling of familiarity that never feels apologetic.” — FLOOD
To celebrate the album’s release, The Wild Feathers will perform a three-night stand at Ernest Tubb Record Shop in downtown Nashville (417 Broadway) on December 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. Admission is free.
With the purchase of Live At The Ryman, as well as an additional item from the shop, guests will receive a limited-edition poster signed by the band. (A different poster will be available each night.) The band’s intention is to support Earnest Tubb Record Shop, a local, independent institution for the past 70 years.
The track-listing for Live at the Ryman is as follows:
Help Me Out
If You Don’t Love Me
Don’t Ask Me to Change
