'That's My Story' with Collin Raye



"Eddie Heinzelman writes, sings, and plays with an abundance of heart and talent. On his latest record, soulful electric guitars, country harmonies, and roots rock groove weave together like wild muscadine grape vines on a southern Indiana fence line." - Radney Foster

"Terrific album and guest...Eddie is the real deal!"- Charlie Mattos, WSM Radio

"Eddie Heinzelman playes lead for a friend of mine, Rad Foster, and many other fantastic musicians. Just a couple weeks ago, I was hosting Radney Foster in Dallas, Texas, and Eddie gave me his new cd... It is nothing short of amazing! Get one now!" - Brett Dillon, KHYI Radio, Dallas, TX 

"Killer stuff! I'm a big fan" - Johnny Hiland

Eddie Heinzelman - WHEREVER YOU GO  - "where a bunch of session and background cats band together and decide to add that extra special sauce that can lead to a break out of their own. An entertaining country/rock-Americana date that connects by coming straight from the heart, he might be here to put on a show but he'll send you off into the night with something more than melodies in the back of your mind. Solid stuff made for good times." - MidwestRecord.com

"With its lines like “She kissed me deeply one more time, and in a moment she was gone…were you ever mine, Dandelion?” this song is a open-hearted love song.  With crashing rhythms, extended guitar solos, Trinko on the B3, and Martin’s slide sounding like pedal steel, Heinzelman sings powerful, wide-open lofty phrases of hope.  Chantelle’s vocal punctuates the emotion like a zig zag razor in the mix, and the whole song will send chills of hope and longing down your spine" - Americana Highways
