Nashville-based award-winning artist/songwriter Shantell Ogden has released a new single titled “Breaking Something Wild.” The acoustic-driven Americana/Country storytelling song is now available for streaming and download on all platforms worldwide.
“Breaking Something Wild” was written by Ogden and longtime collaborator Bill DiLuigi. It was produced / recorded by Dave Smith (who has worked with Toby Keith, Lee Greenwood and many more) in Nashville.
Showcasing Ogden’s gifts as a writer and artist, the song immediately pulls the listener into a scene “He’s out in that round pen when the sun comes up / Puts fire in his blood when that colt kicks up dust / He let’s it run awhile, breaking something wild.” As the song unfolds, so does a love story of this cowboy and “a cowgirl tornado with dust on her halo.”
Ogden commented the personal experience that inspired this song, “When we wrote this song last fall, Bill and I were out on the road touring and I was struggling with a relationship that was feeling more and more controlling. I kept thinking, ‘I need to stay strong and remember who I am’ and that was the idea that became the story of a cowgirl with an unbreakable spirit.”
Ogden has also added three additional dates to her upcoming UK Tour, along with numerous radio interviews.
