Wild Country originated in 1998. Ted's exceptional talent on the pedal steel as well as his leadership and classic vocals reminded people what REAL country music was all about. As with most groups, members came and went, until THIS combination resonated to the extent that we all knew this was it! The combined talent and years of worldly experience of Ted and Ben complemented by Tim, Garrett and Shawn's energy and song selection has made this one of the favorite groups in Southwest Colorado. Billed as the best band you ever heard who has never rehearsed, fact is, it's true. Every night the band performs some numbers only one member actually knows, but the group is so well meshed together, the audience never knows the difference. Versatility is key, as the group reads every crowd and plays to the greatest reaction. From Merle Haggard, Waylon and Willie, Dwight Yoakum, George Strait, Hank Sr., to B.B. King, Lynard Skynard, ZZ Top, the Eagles,the Turtles, Eric Clapton and so on. Stump the band is a popular pastime.
Wild Country is available for bookings at nightclubs, corporate and private parties, weddings or most any occasion. When they have fun, everyone has fun. They ALWAYS have fun!
