The Wild Feathers

When you’ve been making records for over a decade and playing shows with the likes of Bob Dylan and Willie Nelson, you’re bound to have logged your fair share of miles. For the five members of Nashville country rock band The Wild Feathers, exploring the great outdoors—especially with family—is a huge part of staying balanced and inspired on the road. 

Across their six albums, including a live album recorded at the historic Ryman Auditorium, The Wild Feathers showcase a blend of musical influences. “We write together, we write individually and draw from all sides of the blues, country and rock ‘n’ roll,” says guitarist and singer Ricky Young. “We want to make records and write songs that are timeless and classic. It’s not always easy, but it’s what we set out to do when we were kids…and we’re not going anywhere anytime soon.”With their gear packed comfortably into the first-ever Toyota Grand Highlander Hybrid, the Wild Feathers drive through Cascade Springs en route to the Provo River for some fly fishing before plugging in at The Cabin in Park City for a lively performance of “Out On The Road” from their 2021 album Alvarado.

Sounds of the Road showcases intimate musical performances and candid interviews with some of America’s best rising talent. Season 3 takes us deep into the musical hub of the south: Atlanta, Georgia. Ride along with Decatur’s own Hero the Band, rock ‘n’ roll sisters Rebecca and Megan Lovell of Larkin Poe, and singer-songwriter Amythyst Kiah as they explore the city in three equally unique and stylish Toyota vehicles.
