CW Exclusive - A Heart Full of Faith
Faith Hill to debut “American Heart” video to fans first on Nov. 8.
It's been five years since we last got a new music video from Faith Hill, so when "American Heart" makes it's debut tomorrow (Nov. 8), fans around the world will be tuning in. And what a surprise they'll get when they see Faith hoofing it like a Broadway pro with young dancer T.J. Jones.
An excited Faith says, "When I first heard this song I was brought to tears. I not only knew i had to record it, but I almost immediately saw it visually."
Faith talked to Country Weekly about the video process.
CW: Does the video process ever feel like work to you? Do you enjoy it?
Faith: I do enjoy it, but it's work—long hours. They flew by, though, because the vibe on the set was loose. We all had our thing to do but made sure to have fun in the process.
CW: What was harder for you—singing to a room of cameras and equipment or learning the choreography?
Faith: Learning the choreography! It took me the day to do it because it needed to be shot in one sequence, so it wasn't like learning 20 seconds, getting that shot and then moving it along to the next segment. It was incredibly fun but nerve-racking.
CW: What role does the young boy play in the video?
Faith: T.J. Jones. He's a star in the making. I had the idea for me to have a young sidekick in the video. In a way he symbolizes the American spirit that we all should be trying to pass along to our youth.
CW: Do you have a favorite all-time video of yours?
Faith: "American Heart"!
The video will premiere during a fan-first web simulcast on faithhill.com and facebook.com/faithhill via uStream at 9:00pm ET, and will also include an opportunity for fans to chat together before, during and after the debut.
