Wild Ponies describe themselves as American, Folk and Alt-County. Band Members Doug and Telisha Williams live in East Nashville and come to No. 3 Railroad Street as part of a regional tour. |
Dead right, honest songwriting delivered in a hauntingly beautiful yet gritty, neo-traditional Americana wrapper. Doug and Telisha, now residing in the new Bohemian Mecca of East Nashville, write songs about a place where old time religion, superstition, run down bars, gravel parking lots and boarded up factories all mingle together. Their most recent release, "Ghost of the Knoxville Girl", received wide critical acclaim, and spent 15 weeks in the Americana Music Association Top 40 Radio Chart, landing a spot as one of the top 100 Americana Albums of 2010. The past few years have been filled with hundreds of shows and thousands of miles for Doug and Telisha. They've traveled from Florida to Oregon and Michigan to Texas, they've played with some of their most beloved heroes - Lucinda Williams, Darrell Scott, Charlie Louvin, and Joe Ely - and been on several of the nations most revered stages - Anderson Fair, The Birchmere, The Carolina Theater, Godrey Daniels, Madison Square Park and Floydfest. Quick wit and fearless delivery make every show different and personal. - Artist Facebook Page
