About Wild Rose

The five-piece all-woman band Wild Rose was founded by multi-talented musician Wanda Vick, who got her start as a session player and side player for Lynn Anderson's group. Vick first teamed with drummer Nancy Given Prout in Right Combination, Porter Wagoner's all-female band. Later, Vick and Prout were joined by former New Coon Creek Girls Pamela Gadd and Pam Perry, who both sang and played guitar. Bass guitarist and singer Kathy Mac, formerly of Tina Carroll & the Nashville Satins, rounded out the group. They first called themselves Miss Behavin', but changed to Wild Rose before signing with Universal Records in 1988. With the assistance of James Stroud, they produced one album, Breakin' New Ground; its title track reached the Top 20 the following year, just before the label folded. In 1990, Wild Rose appeared on the television special Night of 100 Stars and later that year signed to Capitol to work with producer Jimmy Bowen. Capitol reissued their debut album and it made the Top 50 of the country album charts. The album produced one more Top 40 hit, "Go Down Swingin'." They made their first video that year for "Everything He Touches," from their second album Straight and Narrow. Shortly after releasing their third album Listen to Your Heart (1991), the members of Wild Rose went their separate ways. ~ Sandra Brennan
