Country group Heartland chatted about their new single “No Tomorrow.”

The band consists of Craig Anderson, Todd Anderson, Mike Myerson, and Lance Horton on lead vocals.

‘No Tomorrow’

On the idea for the song “No Tomorrow,” Todd Anderson said, “We had been pitched a lot of songs, as soon as we heard ‘No Tomorrow,’ we knew we had to record it. ‘No Tomorrow’ really defines where we are at in life as a band and it’s the perfect song for us right now. When we got the band back together, there was a certain feeling of ‘hunger.’ Almost an aggressive feeling of life that had been injected into all of us.”

“There is a difference between truly being alive, versus just living,” Anderson said. “This is a perfect expression of those emotions and these feeling really came through during the recording. It’s been a true roller coaster of events that have lead us to this moment, we’re excited to have folks come along and enjoy the ride with us.”

The music video for “No Tomorrow” was directed by Justin Mayotte.

Music and songwriting inspirations

Regarding their music and songwriting inspirations, Anderson said, “Most of the time, inspiration for songwriting comes from my immediate surrounding or the people close to me.” 

“I get inspiration from family, friends or even exposure to cool artwork… And when all else fails, I’ll go to a cool concert and “rock out!” That always gets the creativity flowing,” he added.

Country music

Mike Myerson is drawn to country music for several reasons. “You can’t help but feel what the singer is singing when you listen to country music. You can feel it down in your heart and soul, whether it’s about a terrible heartbreak or the buildup of heart-stopping passion,” Myerson said.

“My favorite country songs are like vivid stories told via music,” Myerson admitted. “There is a beginning and an end to the person’s journey. When I’m in a terrible mood and need to be lifted, I switch on the country station and immediately feel better. One of the best reasons to enjoy country music is because there is a tune for every emotion.”

Future plans

On their future plans, Lance Horton said, “We certainly plan to release more music in the future. We have an album finished and we’re waiting for the right time to deliver it to the masses. We are also exploring booking options and plan to be back out on the road soon.”

The digital age

On being a band in the digital age, at a time when streaming, technology, and social media being so prevalent, Myerson said, “The landscape of the music industry has changed so much over the last several years. The means to get your music out to the masses has changed from radio and physical copies to a digital, online world. In one way, the freedom to post content makes the field wide open.”

“In contrast, the amount of music on YouTube, social media, and streaming services can make it challenging to get noticed. Fortunately for us, the folks out there who remember ‘I Loved Her First’ are willing to give us a listen again. We are so thankful for our dedicated fans,” Myerson expressed.

Success

On his definition of the word success, Horton said, “Success for us is getting to do what we love. We are all looking forward to getting back on stage and performing as well as meeting with fans, old and new.

Fans

For their fans, Todd Anderson said, “I don’t want to sound cliché, but the statement, “tomorrow is promised to no one“ is incredibly true. ‘No Tomorrow’ is all about living to the fullest right now.”

“Life is too short to sit on the sidelines and watch it pass by,” he said. “Get out there and take a shot, take a gamble, risk a little and live it out loud! One day you’ll be too old to take that shot, to take that gamble, to take that risk… as you look back on life, make sure it’s worth watching,” Anderson concluded.
