In Their Words: “‘Fire Song’ is the most bold lyric on my whole upcoming record. It had to be; it picks up where I left off when I left my family band six years ago this spring. Inspired by the hardest season of my life, this song says that sometimes we have to let it all burn to the ground in order to survive and start over.

“All but one other song on the record I wrote myself, but ‘Fire Song’ was co-written with Jon Randall. I was so honored to get to work with him and had first fallen in love with his work when I heard the beautifully dark ‘Whiskey Lullaby.’ I knew this was the right idea to take to him and I’m so happy with what we made together.

“The ‘Fire Song’ lyrics are so vivid, almost cinematic, so we knew we had to make a video for it if we got the chance. Quinton Cook, the director, did a fantastic job with the Glitch video crew. We burned a lot of stuff! At one point the flames were four times as tall as me. In the video, you can see at different points I’m both the person being sung to and the person singing, playing fiddle and stoking the fire.” — Jessica Willis Fisher
