Reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year Eric Church takes fans on a whirlwind trip down memory lane with today’s Reid Long-directed music video for his current top 25-and-climbing single “Heart On Fire.” From the Sinners Like Me launching pad of his career in 2006 through the raucous anthem off his latest chart-topping project, Heart & Soul, the must-see video offers a high-octane sizzle reel of Church’s hit-filled journey to date, as each reminiscent clip flows naturally from one to the next, connected by the same common threads: passion, contemplation and a reverence for live music.
The rapid-fire trip through a decade-plus of hits – which has included 11 No. 1 songs at Country radio and 30 Gold, Platinum and multi-Platinum certified singles – provides a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it collection of reference points before Church brings the song to a rousing close with a performance alongside longtime powerhouse backing vocalist Joanna Cotten. Watch the full music video here:
“Heart On Fire” is the third single of Church’s latest project, the critically acclaimed triple album Heart & Soul. The song is praised as standing among the “most liberating and freewheeling work” of Church’s career by Entertainment Weekly, while Stereogum applauds the “Southern rock rave-up with pounding pianos and wailing backup vocals,” declaring, “Church sings the hell out of it” and Music Row proclaims that “this rollicking rocker is one more example why the Chief stands head and shoulders above just about everyone else in this format.”
Church, who is tied for most nominations with five at the upcoming CMA Awards (including a repeat nod for Entertainer of the Year), is bringing both “Heart On Fire” and the nostalgic hits of days past to fans across the U.S. and Canada as The Gather Again Tour continues into 2022. Tickets to all dates, including the grand finale at New York City’s iconic Madison Square Garden, are on sale now at EricChurch.com. All tour dates will enforce local venue and/or city guidelines regarding COVID-19 precautions. Church will be touring with a fully vaccinated crew.
