Heartsfield is an American vocal rock group that was formed in 1970 by guitarists J.C. Hartsfield and Perry Jordan. The band's first album included, in addition to Hartsfield and Jordan, Phil Lucafo on electric guitar and pedal steel guitar; Art Baldacci on drums, bass, congas and piano; Greg "Ziggy" Biela on bass; and Freddie Dobbs on electric guitar, banjo, and bottleneck guitar.

Heartsfield toured throughout the United States during the 1970s and early 1980s. They reunited in 1999, and have released twelve albums, with their latest released in 2010. The first single from that album, "Here I Am" was released concurrently and was written by Chicagoan Dan Myers, and a promotional tour was undertaken.

Having Billboard charted singles and albums, Heartsfield has sold millions of records and were pioneers in the Southern Rock/Country Rock genres'. Their complex intertwined lead guitar riffs are indicative of the music style they helped create as are their three and four part harmonies.

Their song, "Another Man Down" was included in the book, [1].

Current members include Freddie Dobbs, Andon Davis, Dave Nelson, Scott Bonshire, and Steve Eddington.

Perry Jordan died in 2011.[2] J.C. Hartsfield died on Thursday, July 17, 2014.[3]
