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: Elephant Revival becomes a headscratcher – Elephant Revival is not the easiest band to sonically pinpoint.

No matter the style, Elephant Revival easily absorbed and mastered the music.... »»»
