The story of Cam’s “Burning House” is a true one. At the end of an on-again, off-again relationship Cam finally decided it was off for good, but she says she didn’t handle it very well. Before seeing the old flame again, Cam had a dream about, you guessed it, a burning house.
Cam tells “Entertainment Tonight,” about the dream, “I thought so much about how I was gonna put that apology before that party, that night before I went to bed with all that on my mind, I dreamt about this house. It was on fire and all the rescue crews were out and they couldn’t put out the fire. They were saying, ‘He’s in there but you can’t go in there. The house is about to come down.’ And, like the hero I am, I ran inside and he was in there. Instead of leaving and saving myself, I just laid down next to him and held him so he wouldn’t have to die alone.”
The brand new video brings the dream to life and then some– at one point during the filming– Cam’s dress caught on fire. Smartly, firefighters were on hand to keep everything under control and the result this beautifully shot video for an already stunning song.
The video was shot by ACM and CMA Award-winning director Trey Fanjoy and produced by Trent Hardville for Big Feather Films.
On the eve of her video debut, Cam was surprised at the office of Sony Music Nashville with a plaque celebrating “Burning House” as an RIAA-certified Gold record. Co-written by Cam, the song marks her first Gold record.
