Ryan Langdon: Buck Wild

The rising country star returns with a new party-hearty cut featuring virile vocals and sizzling guitar.

Ryan Langdon: Buck Wild

By Kerry Doole

Ryan Langdon - Buck Wild (Slaight Music): The Niagara Falls, ON, country singer has been making a splash on the Canadian scene, as evidenced by his 2019 nomination for the Country Music Association of Ontario Rising Star Award.


His high-energy cut Lit In The Sticks grabbed attention, and now he's back with a new rockin' country track that sounds like a hit to these ears. Both songs were co-written by Langdon and the dynamic songwriting duo of Nashville-based Canadians Emma Lee and Karen Kosowski, and they clearly have a creative chemistry going on.

Buck Wild's theme is of payday partying, and we love the lines "someone call NASA, cos this night is going off like a rocket." Langdon's beefy voice fits perfectly, and some searing guitar kicks it into overdrive. Ideal for playing loud at your solo patio party in these socially isolated times.

The Billboard Canada FYI Bulletin: Beyoncé Country Hit A Win For Canadian Songwriters

Also in this week's roundup of industry news: Kayla Diamond launches her own boutique imprint, SOCAN names an ombudsman, and time's running out for noms for this year's Rosalie Award honouring trailblazing women in broadcasting.

Beyoncé becomes the first Black woman to top Billboard’s Country Songs chart with “Texas Hold ‘Em” and it has gone to No. 1 on iTunes in 14 different countries and counting. There are some surprising connections. The song is co-written and co-produced by Ontario-born writer/producer Nathan Ferraro, whose previous collaborations include working with Lady Gaga, Carly Rae Jepsen, Bear Mountain, RALPH, Shawn Hook, Alyssa Reid, Jessie Reyez, Lowell and Tyler Shaw.

In fact, the song has deep Canadian origins. Two other Canadian songwriters participated in this runaway hit: Megan Bülow (who records and performs as bülow) as and Elizabeth "Lowell" Boland (a.k.a. Lowell), with Ferraro co-producing the track with Killah B and Beyoncé.
