Texas Hill just released the official music video for their latest single, “Heaven Down Here.” The video for the song, which is the title track of their first full-length project, was filmed at their album release party, held at Brooklyn Bowl in Nashville.
The group, formed in 2020, is made up of The Voice contestants Adam Wakefield and Craig Wayne Boyd, and American Idol finalist, Casey James, While each enjoying successful solo careers, all three singers have enjoyed the camaraderie and magic that happens when they combine their talents.
“All three of us were thrust into situations where millions of people made snap judgments on our talent and ability in 90 seconds, and that’s why this project has been so cathartic for us,” Wakefield previously said. “There are so many things we’re proud of on this record. I think the one I’m most proud of is how diverse and raw it is. At a time where new music coming out of ‘Music City’ can be formatted and predictable, we let the music lead, and it took us to a lot of different places.
“There are elements of blues, R&B, country, southern rock and even Latin influences on this mama-jama,” he added. “I think there’s something for everyone on here.”
Texas Hill might have never even happened, if not for a personal and professional crossroads Boyd found himself at, after winning The Voice in 2014.
“I was sitting in my garage thinking about what I wanted to do in my own personal career,” Boyd told Everything Nash. “I felt beat up a little bit, and I just wanted to get back to the love of music. And one of those things for me was singing harmonies and singing in a group. In talking with my wife, who is the brilliant one, she asked who I would want to sing with. And both of these guys are my first choices. This is who I would see if I had my dream vocal group. I like their voices. I’m a fan of both of them, so I called them up.”
