EDITORS’ NOTES

Nearly a decade into their careers and with growing families, the Nashville quartet's third album wrestles with balancing the magic of touring and the pull to get back home. Full of wistful highway anthems built on breezy three-part harmonies, Greetings from the Neon Frontier winks at some of rock’s greatest highwaymen—the Eagles (“Wildfire"), the Allman Brothers (“Big Sky"), and Tom Petty (“Stand by You”)—but producer Jay Joyce (Eric Church, Little Big Town) grasps onto the band’s country roots, evoking heartbreak with a devastating blend of weepy fiddle and pedal steel ("Two Broken Hearts”).

TITLE TIME

About The Wild Feathers

Formed in 2010 in Nashville, Tennessee around the talents of Ricky Young, Joel King, and Taylor Burns, all of whom had served as lead singers in their previous bands, the Wild Feathers came together out of a shared love for all things Tom Petty, Led Zeppelin, Neil Young, the Band, and the Allman Brothers. Preferring the term "American" over Americana, the Wild Feathers eventually inked a deal with Warner Bros. and found themselves opening shows for Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson. The band's eponymous major-label debut hit the streets in the summer of 2013. The album peaked at number one on Billboard's Heatseekers chart, resulting in invites to appear on Jimmy Kimmel, Conan O Brien, Seth Meyers, Craig Ferguson, and ABC's Nashville, as well as critical acclaim from the likes of Rolling Stone, The New York Times, and USA Today. The band's sophomore studio long-player, Lonely Is a Lifetime, dropped in early 2016. ~ James Christopher Monger
