Heartland hopes for repeat success

Tuesday, August 14, 2007 – Heartland hit the top of the singles charts with its single "I Loved Her First," and now one record label later, the band is trying to duplicate that success.

Country Thunder Records released Heartland's "Once A Woman Gets A Hold of Your Heart."

The song was produced and co-written by John Rich, who said, "It was a pleasure to record with the Heartland boys. I think 'Once a Woman Gets A Hold of Your Heart' is a big ol' hit. They really sang the hell out of it."

The group consists of Mike Myerson, Charles Crawford, Craig Anderson, Jason Albert, Keith West and Todd Anderson.

Heartland had been on Lofton Creek Records, but split with the Nashville-based label for Country Thunder, which also has Jamie Lee Thurston on the roster.

When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Old, new, it's all good for Platt & The Honeycutters – Amanda Anne Platt & The Honeycutters were not mounting the stage with anything particularly new to push. The quartet's self-titled fifth album came out just over 1 -years ago. Lest one think that Platt and band were growing tired of life on the road, far from it. In a well-delivered 85-minute set, Platt and The Honeycutters turned that ancient... »»»
Concert Review: Lake Street Dive ends the year in style – Lake Street Dive may have been looking back when it offered that traditional New Year's song "Auld Lang Syne" as the new year rolled in. No matter which way the band looks - forwards or backwards - life is good. For the second time in six weeks, Lake Street Dive was back home (the Brooklyn-based group formed at the local New England... »»»
