Songfacts®:

  • This is the title track of RaeLynn's debut studio album. "I remember when I wrote 'WildHorse' and thinking how the apple doesn't fall too far from the tree," the singer explained. "My grandmother used to call my mom a wild horse, and I definitely am, too. I've always had a different way of looking at life and embracing my carefree spirit. Sure, I can be a handful with my Texas sass mixed with sparkly glitter, but you know, I am who I am."

    RaeLynn added: "And, I know I'm not the only one out there, right? I hope that when you hear this song, it gives you the confidence to be yourself and be the wild horse you were meant to be."
  • The song's title was inspired by a family poem. "My grandmother wrote a poem about my mom called Wild Horse," RaeLynn told Billboard magazine. "It was talking about how she was the good kind of crazy, and she couldn't imagine her any other way. When my mom was reading me the poem, I thought that name would be the perfect title track to this record."
