LAS VEGAS, NV (Oct 6, 2010) — Las Vegas-based country rock band Grey Beard Bandit who wrote and recorded “Wild Horses Need Our Voices” will debut the stirring, awareness-raising anthem live in Las Vegas on Columbus Day at a free concert at Horseman’s Park.
Due to escalated roundups conducted by federal agency Bureau of Land Management (BLM), there are now more wild horses in government holding pens than on the public lands set aside by law for their preservation. Advocates, alarmed at their dwindling numbers, are fearful the massive removals will ultimately lead to the extinction of the nation’s Mustangs.
Grey Beard Bandit will perform “Wild Horses Need Our Voices” live for the first time during a free concert and wild horse rally being staged on Columbus Day, October 11, 2010, 3 to 6 pm at Horseman’s Park, Las Vegas, Nevada.
“We need to leave these horses alone. They are now an endangered species because of what the BLM has done to them,” says Bill Wakefield, who wrote “Wild Horses Need Our Voices”. “I wrote the song because I feel if Americans only knew, they would rally around and protect these iconic horses.”
“It is a great song with a great message,” says Vivian Farrell, President of the Int’l Fund for Horses. “Please come out, listen to the song, and give your voices to these living symbols of American freedom.”
“Wild Horses Need Our Voices” is available for download on iTunes and Amazon MP3. Get the song. Join the cause.
