Eric Church chronicles decade of hits in ‘Heart on Fire’ video

The must-see video takes fans down memory lane

Reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year Eric Church takes fans on a whirlwind trip down memory lane with the 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.

“Heart On Fire” is the third single of Church’s latest project, the critically acclaimed triple album Heart & Soul.

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 US and Canada as The Gather Again Tour continues into 2022. The grand finale will be held at New York City’s iconic Madison Square Garden in May 2022. All tour dates will enforce local venue and/or city guidelines regarding COVID-19 precautions. Church will be touring with a fully vaccinated crew.

Last weekend, Church performed two unexpected solo shows in Pittsburgh and Philadelphia after members of his touring band tested positive for COVID. Instead of canceling due to the breakthrough cases, Church decided to perform solo, inviting Cam to Pittsburgh and Morgan Wallen to Philadelphia, respectively, as special guests.
