– The Wild Feathers' new video for Hard Wind
premiered on CMT.
The single is included on the quintet's self-titled, debut album, out Aug. 6 on Warner.
The Wild Feathers came together in Nashville in 2010 through coincidence, mutual friends and a shared love of Tom Petty, Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash Cash, The Band, Allman Bros, Neil Young and Graham Parsons. Ricky Young, Joel King, Taylor Burns, Preston Wimberly and Ben Dumas comprise the group, which played throughout the south for the past six months, with stops at the Hangout and Sasquatch Festivals in between. Tour dates with Willie Nelson are set for August.
