Kenny knew he wanted to say some things that werent being said when he went in to make The Big Revival. One thing that was important to him was celebrating the potency of womens spirits, hearts, and souls and he wrote Wild Child, a dreamy ballad that once again features Grace Potter, to do just that.
As 'Wild Child" hit No. 1 on the Billboard and Mediabase Country Singles charts, it marked the first time since Hemingways Whiskey that Kenny has seen his first three singles top the charts. It is also the very first No. 1 for Grace Potter, who shared a GRAMMY nomination with Kenny for You & Tequila.
We didnt know how it was going to do, especially right now when ballads are everything people arent listening to, but we believed in the song. I wanna say thank you to country radio for thinking outside the box. Your support made this possible.
But ultimately, it is the fans who make the tours and respond to the songs. For Kenny it is the spirit of Wild Child that defines his fans, the No Shoes Nation, and the best of every woman he sees when he looks out from the stage.
To me, a girl who is so alive, so in the moment, so curious and hungry for life...Theres nothing like her, Kenny said of the songs inspiration. You cant tie 'em down. So free...and so intense because of it. Nothing is more attractive. To me, that makes women really special. Whether they want to live in the mountains, become a doctor, play music in Hawaii, surf around the world, whatever their passion is, that is what drives them and man, its an amazing thing."
