– 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.

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.
