Sara Evans and Will Chase will be performing Evans’ latest single, “Put My Heart Down”, on ABC’s Nashville on October 29th. The two sat down with songwriters Nathan Chapman, Andrew Dorff, and Elizabeth Huett to talk about the story behind the song for “On the Record”, a web series that documents the journey of the original songs performed on the show from the start of the writing process to their on-air performances.
Sara, Will, and the writers discuss the songwriting process and how it can lead to, what Chapman calls, “magic” moments like having a song placed on the hit ABC drama. The intimate, behind the scenes look at the song also offers viewers a sneak peek of October 29th’s performance with Chase.
Chase tips his hat to the songwriting process and notes its authenticity; naming one of the things he loves most about the show. “On the Record” is the perfect way to acknowledge and honor those who write the original songs that appear on the show.
The duet version of the song is available on iTunes here. Be sure to tune in to ABC at 10/9c on October 29th to catch the full performance of “Put My Heart Down”.
