On Tuesday (October 26th), country superstar Eric Church took to his Instagram to share a behind the scene video of his  single ‘Heart on Fire.’

Eric Church’s latest post reads, “The behind the scenes piece for the ‘Heart On Fire’ Official Music Video is available now! Hear from Eric on the process of making the video and what the project means to him!”

Eric Church previously revealed details about the meaning behind single, which he released earlier this year. “So, ‘Heart On Fire,’ was the first song we recorded when we got to North Carolina,” the country singer recalled to Country Now. “I wrote this song by myself. But I already had this song on the rails. And we were heading down the path of what this was going to be.”

Eric Church also stated that he thought he and his crew needed to “break the ice” and get started on his “Heart & Soul” project. “You know, we were doing something that was tough to do. Wiring the song the same day we were record[ing] it.”

The country singer then declared that “Heart on Fire” was kind of the icebreaker of the whole project. “I credit this song a lot for getting us to where we ended up getting to with the project.”

“Heart On Fire” is the third single of Eric Church’s latest project ‘Heart & Soul.’ According to Church’s website, the song is praised as standing among the “most liberating and freewheeling work” of the country singer’s career by Entertainment Weekly.  Eric Church now has seven studio albums. He also has 10 No. 1 singles.
