LOS ANGELES.- The White Buffalo’s song “Wish
It Was True” has struck a chord with audiences for its raw emotions and
portrayal in the #1 hit Netflix documentary “Waco: American
Apocalypse.” Intense and beautiful, the acoustic song, a fan favorite, is
also the greatest gainer this week on the Shazam USA Top 100, and the
third-biggest mover in the U.K., in addition to receiving a massive increase in
streams and playlist adds.

“This song has taken on many shapes and has
become somewhat of an anthem for veterans,” says The White Buffalo, aka Jake
Smith. “It’s about missteps and misfortune with family, God, and country. A
search for truth through the eyes of delusion.”

“Waco: American Apocalypse”
filmmaker Tiller Russell adds, “The White Buffalo’s ‘Wish It Was True’ is a
rare and precious thing–a beautiful and poignant song that drips righteously
with Americana. As soon as we saw it against picture in the edit of ‘Waco:
American Apocalypse’, we knew… this is the one.”

Released to coincide with the 30th
anniversary of this national tragedy, “Waco: American Apocalypse” is directed
by acclaimed filmmaker Tiller Russell (“Night Stalker”) and has
gained widespread popularity reaching #1 in the U.S. on Netflix. The limited
series is based on the controversial 1993 standoff between the FBI and the
Branch Davidians, a religious cult led by David Koresh, that took place in
Waco, Texas and features exclusive access to recently unearthed videotapes
filmed inside the FBI Crisis Negotiation Unit, as well as raw news footage
never released to the American public, and FBI recordings. Using cutting-edge
visual technology, “Waco: American Apocalypse” plunges viewers inside the
multifaceted clash between the Branch Davidians and federal law enforcement in
an epic drama about God and guns in America.
