Wild in The Wind is the debut single from rising British country artist, Tommy Atkins. On 27 September, the track stormed onto the iTunes Country Charts across the world, reaching #2 in New Zealand and #5 in the U.K.
The singer describes the ballad as “emotional, but celebratory. It mourns the loss of a friend but focuses on being grateful for that person ever being in your life. I hope this song can provide comfort and make you smile, even if there is a tear in your eye.”
The track was recorded in Nashville by producer Dr Ford and features legendary steel guitar and dobro player, Smith Curry (Dolly Parton, Taylor Swift, Little Big Town), guitarist Chris Condon (Billy Ray Cyrus) and Tommy’s co-writer, Anna Pearson, on harmony. The song was mastered by GRAMMY-nominated engineer, Pete Lyman (Chris Stapleton, Brandi Carlile).
“I couldn’t have asked for a better set of musicians to lend their talents to this song. Dr Ford let me have a say in so much of the production and I’m extremely proud of what we’ve created.
The single’s gone on to receive widespread radio play in the U.K. and beyond and I can’t thank the DJs enough for supporting this independent artist.”
Wild in the Wind is available now on all major download and streaming platforms.
