"The idea for making this video came to me when I was at the studio one day talking with my producer, Blake Chancey, and some of my other good friends," Heidi tells The Boot. "They told me I needed to take all of this crazy footage that I have piled up on my flip cam from life on the road, vacation in St. John with Kenny Chesney and friends, practicing in the back of the bus with my hilarious and talented (and slightly demented) band, the Shakedown, and more ... I think there might have been a few adult beverages consumed during the making of this video, but fear not, kids -- there's nothing too bad on there, promise!"

"My producer suggested I get my editing guru, Eric, to help me put this together for you guys, and also showed me a few others on YouTube that might make for a cool vibe," Heidi continues, addressing her fans who've been anxiously awaiting a new video from her. "We came across a super cool music video from my girl, Adele, for her new song, 'Rolling in the Deep.' I loved how gritty and real it looked, so I thought I'd go after that same sort of 'raw' feel with this. So here we are! I got on the ball, and we all started editing away!"
Heidi notes that this is just a "first glimpse" of 'Stay Up Late' and not the official music video, which she promises to be "a little more sexy" to go along with the song's red-hot lyrics.
