"Heather's Wall" is a song written by Rick Giles, Tim Nichols, and Gilles Goddard, and recorded by American country music singer Ty Herndon. The song was slated to appear on his fifth studio album for Epic Records, which was never released due to the single's underperformance.[2]


The song is about a man who walks in on a bank robbery and is fatally wounded in the process, unable to think of anything other than his love, who is named Heather.[1]

Giles Goddard said that co-writer Tim Nichols had the title "Heather's Wall" for several years, but he and the other co-writers were unsure of what to do with the title until Rick Giles saw a bank robbery on television.[3]

Critical reception

Deborah Evans Price of Billboard reviewed the song with favor, saying that the song was "well-written" and that Herndon "delivers a powerful performance", although she added that "in a national climate where people are yearning for comfort and peace, this may have a challenge at the starting gate."[1]

Music video

The song's music video features Donna Scott, who also starred in Herndon's videos for "Living in a Moment" and "Hands of a Working Man", portraying Heather.[3]
