Today’s the day to get Tanya Tucker’s new album, While I’m Livin. and she’s released her first single “The Wheels Of Laredo” and the official video. Everybody over here at Outlaw Circus thinks what we’ve heard so far is great, including “The Wheels Of Laredo”.
The song, written by Brandi Carlile, Tim Hanseroth, and Phil Hanseroth, is a classic western, built for Tanya’s sound and it fits the legend like a glove in my opinion.
A tale of two separated lovers, “The Wheels Of Laredo” is is the kind of Country music we don’t get to hear enough of anymore. A well-written standard performed flawlessly and, like the rest of the album, a great song like this should be exponentially more popular than it will be.
