Chuck Ragan Premieres “Something May Catch Fire” video via CMT Edge

We’ve been waiting on this one for a while but we’re SO happy to finally premiere the brand new Chuck Ragan video for his incredible single “Something May Catch Fire” via CMT Edge!

http://s1dm.my/chuckCMT

“I felt they captured an essence of love that we’ve all have either known ourselves or have dreamed of knowing one day,” explains Chuck. “It’s easy to find inspiration when you’re with someone you fall in love with over and over again throughout your lives.”

The video for the life-long love story behind his second single “Something May Catch Fire” featuring his all-star backing band The Camaraderie was filmed at The Carnivale House on the foothills of Big Sky Movie Ranch in Los Angeles, CA and produced by Dannel Escallon and Anthem Films.
