The Wandering Hearts have announced they will be providing the support for Jack Savoretti's gig as part of this summer's Forest Live series on Cannock Chase.

The Wandering Hearts will play on Cannock Chase

As they release their new single - a cover of Mark Ronson and Miley Cyrus' Nothing Breaks Like A Heart - the country trio have revealed they will back Savoretti up at the outdoor show on July 7.

Speaking of the new single, the band said: “When we first heard Nothing Breaks Like A Heart, we all loved it and thought it would be cool to do our own version.

"You can hear the traditional country influence on the song and given Miley's relationship with Dolly Parton, we had the idea to include a subtle nod to Jolene."

The band have just come back from Nashville where they played the very same CMA Festival that saw local former Unsigned column stars The Adelaides on the bill.

They will now be looking forward to playing close to the Wolverhampton hometown of The Adelaides' vocalist Alicia Alba.

Signed to Decca Records, their debut album Wild Silence was released last year to critical acclaim.
