Waiting on Wednesday: Wildflower

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine


This Wednesday I'm Waiting On: Wildflower by Alecia Whitaker

The best songs come from broken hearts.

Sixteen-year-old Bird Barrett has grown up on the road, singing backup in her family's bluegrass band, and playing everywhere from Nashville, Tennesee to Nowhere, Oklahoma. One fateful night, Bird fills in for her dad by singing lead, and a scout in the audience offers her a spotlight all her own.

Soon Bird is caught up in a whirlwind of songwriting meetings, recording sessions, and music video shoots. Her first single hits the top twenty, and suddenly fans and paparazzi are around every corner. She's even caught the eye of her longtime crush, fellow roving musician Adam Dean. With Bird's star on the rise, though, tradition and ambition collide. Can Bird break out while staying true to her roots?

In a world of glamour and gold records, a young country music star finds her voice.

  3. I like Taylor Swift too, though mostly her pop songs. Anyway, I was thinking... why would anyone name their kid Bird?

    Thanks for sharing, I'll be on the lookout for this one ;)
