Country Breakout Artist Byrdie Wilson Releases New Single “Where My Roots Run”
Country breakout artist Byrdie Wilson recently released her new single “Where My Roots Run.” You can listen to the song HERE!
With illustrative, storytelling lyrics like a mix of Sunday morning church bells and a redneck raising hell, “Where My Roots Run” is an autobiographical montage of Byrdie’s life.
“This song echoes the legacy of my family, reminding me of the importance of honoring our past,” Byrdie shares. “It’s a testament to the strength and resilience that comes from embracing where we come from, regardless of the circumstances. Although I have northern roots, most of my experiences took place in the south when my family moved to South Carolina after the terrorist attacks on 9/11. Through this melody, I celebrate the growth and transformation that has shaped me, acknowledging that our roots, no matter how challenging, have the power to inspire and define our journey.”
Beginning in December, Byrdie will also be embarking on her “Where My Roots Run” mini hometown tour. She will be making a special stop at Coffee Underground in Greenville, SC, in honor of her late boyfriend, whom Byrdie lost to suicide. Proceeds from the show will benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention South Carolina (AFSPSC). Tickets are donation-based ($10-$100) and can be purchased HERE.
Byrdie will also be speaking to students at Mauldin High School about the importance of mental health. “It is often a challenge coming home because it brings back so many memories,” Byrdie explains. “I’d love to turn my visit into a positive.”
