Nashville band to be featured on syndicated Country music program
The Wild West Band, an independent Country music band from Nashville, TN, will be the "ICMA Hometown Sounds Talent of the Week" on an upcoming episode of the "Country Dreams" radio program.
"We chose the Wild West Band because of both their talent, as well as their love for their hometown and the people in it", says Alan Shephard, co-host of Country Dreams. He went on to say, "Our goal is to highlight the uniqueness of each hometown, and the talents each village holds".
According to band member Glenn Steed, The Wild West Band has been on the independent charts for over 130 straight weeks, including a #1 and 10 Top Tens. They have been the opening act for several nationally known recording artists.

Their original music is influenced by a dynamic mix of Blues, Rock, Motown, R & B, and Classic/Modern Country. They truly are professional performers that have the ability to get a crowd excited and keep them excited from their first song to their last.
The band consists of Richie Owens on Lead Guitar, Keyboards, Lead and Backup Vocals, Amy Steed performing Lead and Backup Vocals, Glenn Steed on Bass Guitar and Backup Vocals, Dwayne Ferrell on Drums and Backup Vocals, and Basil Daley on Rhythm Guitar, Lead and Backup Vocals. They are managed, promoted, and booked by Stage II Attractions, and sponsored by Jagermeister, WB Gear, SIT Strings, WideRides Guitar Straps, and endorsed by Excel Drum Sticks and RotoSound strings.
