MUSIC NEWS: The Wild Feathers on Jimmy Kimmel Live Tonight.

The Wild Feathers are set to make their debut appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live tonight (ABC, 11:35PM ET/PT), performing their acclaimed single "The Ceiling," which the Minneapolis Star Tribune called "perhaps the most elegantly crafted song of the year."  The Nashville five-piece is performing "Got It Wrong" on Rachael Ray December 10th.

"Got It Wrong" is the new single off the band's self-titled debut album, which opened at #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart. The Jay Joyce (Cage the Elephant, Emmylou Harris)-produced release came out August 13th via Warner Bros Records.  

The Wild Feathers have spent 2013 on the road, putting well over 200 shows behind them. They have played with Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, ZZ Ward, Gary Clark Jr., Dawes and more, with stops at the Sasquatch and Hangout Festivals, Milwaukee's Summerfest, Louisville's Forecastle Festival, San Francisco's Outside Lands, Nashville's Live on the Green and the Austin City Limits festival. They will join Dwight Yoakam on a few California shows this month, and are already confirmed for Stagecoach 2014. Hometown fans are in for a treat this New Year's Eve; the guys will be headlining a special show at Mercy Lounge in Nashville. Click to watch a pretty amazing clip from a recent Nashville show:

Critical response to The Wild Feathers has been effusive. Rolling Stone declared the album "something that fans of heartland artists like the Avett Brothers and My Morning Jacket will appreciate while it recalls the magic of Tom Petty and Neil Young," Relix called it "boisterous and impassioned, reverberating with a raw, live quality," Baeble Music said, "Electrifying, soul stirring, and utterly reverent rock and roll...they're The Wild Feathers and they're pretty much here to kick your ass," and  the NY Daily News gave the album four stars, declaring "the Feathers have the vulnerability and beauty of the Jayhawks...the chemistry they found has the 'eureka' effect of the great American harmony-rock bands, from Buffalo Springfield to Poco." Sirius Radio has nominated the band for two Spectrum Best of 2013 Awards, "Best Artist Discovery" and "Best Song Discovery" for "The Ceiling."
