Wild Choir was an American country music band, originally formed in 1985. Founded by country artist Gail Davies and her guitarist Pete Pendras, Davies thought of the idea upon returning from a trip to London, England in 1985. Upon speaking with RCA executive Joe Galante, the band signed a recording contract with RCA Nashville. Along with a self-titled studio album, the band released three singles in 1986. Although the lead single, "Safe in the Arms of Love", did not chart, it would later become a major hit for both Michelle Wright and Martina McBride in 1995 respectively. Two singles from the album followed, the highest-charting being "Heart to Heart", which reached number forty on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks chart.
Wild Choir's singles received major criticism by country music radio. Many stations found the recordings to be too closely associated with rock music, believing it would not respond well with listeners. Although they did not achieve major success, Wild Choir has been said to influence several major country music bands, including Foster & Lloyd.
