Multi-Platinum artist Blanco Brown has released “Never Gonna Tame You (Original Song from The Mustangs: America’s Wild Horses)” via BBR Music Group. Written by 12x Oscar nominee and Grammy, Emmy and two-time Golden Globe award winner Diane Warren, the track is featured in the feature-length documentary The Mustangs: America’s Wild Horses, which is in theaters now.
Warren, a Songwriters Hall of Fame member, also co-produced the film and wrote the song inspired by the beauty and freedom of the mustang. In search of someone who could tap into the nuances and emotions of the song, Warren reached out to Brown after watching his rendition of the National Anthem at a Dodgers game.
“America’s mustangs represent us. They are living symbols of freedom and independence. This powerful film inspired me to write ‘Never Gonna Tame You’ for these beautiful and majestic creatures and for us who are lucky enough to share the planet with them. Their freedom is our freedom. Blanco Brown took this song to a whole other level. He sings with the voice of all those who long to be free and to stay free,” says Warren.
Since 2014, Brown has honed his sound of countrified influences and street-smart lingo. His viral hit “The Git Up” spawned nearly four billion views across social platforms, claiming the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for 12 weeks and the top-selling digital country song in the U.S. for 13 weeks. The Georgia native is a background singer, artist and Grammy-nominated engineer who has worked with big name talent including Fergie, Childish Gambino, Kane Brown and Chris Brown. His Platinum-certified collaboration “Just the Way” with Parmalee is currently in the Top 20 on Hot AC and has garnered more than 200 million on-demand streams, also marking Brown’s first No. 1 on country radio.
“Working with someone as accomplished, talented and lovely as Diane has been a blessing. I am incredibly honored not only that she chose me to sing one of her songs, but this one especially because it has such a beautiful spirit and was really cathartic to work on,” adds Brown. “I’m so grateful for the opportunity to be a part of this project.”
Executive produced by Robert Redford, Patti Scialfa Springsteen and USA Olympic Equestrian Silver Medalist Jessica Springsteen, the film tells the story of America’s wild horses from their turbulent history to their uncertain future and impact on our country. The Mustangs: America’s Wild Horses soundtrack features an impressive lineup of artists in addition to Brown, including Bruce Springsteen, Willie Nelson and Emmylou Harris.
