Nashville, TN, October 03, 2006 --( Launch South Pictures Director Todd Schaffer and Producer Barry Thiessen teamed up with Lofton Creek Records President Mike Borchetta and VP of Marketing Mark Maynard to shoot the music video for Heartland's hit single "I Loved Her First" in Nashville at historic Union Station and at DR&A Studios.

"All of the guys are amazing, some of the most caring people to work with," said Schaffer, "and we believe that Heartland and 'I Loved Her First' will be around for a very long time, so we were thrilled to be a part of this project. We can't wait for everyone to hear the rest of the album -- you will be truly surprised. These guys kept the country in country."

"We were very fortunate to be able to work in such an incredible location," Thiessen said. "Shooting 35mm/HiDef with a substantial crane and camera remote, the overall quality of the images captured the emotions and feel of the song perfectly."
