"Wild Angels" is a song written by Matraca Berg, Gary Harrison and Harry Stinson, and performed by American country music artist Martina McBride. It was released in November 1995 as the second single and title track from McBride's album of the same name. The song reached Number One on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hot Country Songs) charts, giving McBride her first Number One hit on that chart.
The song is about a female who looks at her relationship and concludes that there must be "wild angels" watching over her and her lover to keep them together.
McBride's daughter, Delaney, who was a baby at the time, can be heard laughing in the song's intro. According to her Greatest Hits album, McBride had a difficult time recording Delaney. She also praised the production of Paul Worley and Ed Seay, notably Lonnie Wilson's drum fills and Joe Chemay's bass guitar. Worley described the dual electric guitar tracks, with Dan Dugmore on the right channel and Dann Huff on the left, as "amazing".
The music video was directed by Thom Oliphant and premiered in late 1995.
