How it all began...
We are Ashley Huntley and Crystal Raney,
voices of Hearts Afire. We were both raised
in musical surroundings and each had a gift
for music individually, but with God’s grace
and guidance combined our faith, friendship
and love for music to begin a music ministry
that we feel not only ministers to others but
Country music is one of the most popular styles of music today, so we include songs with a positive & relevant message of hope to help reach those in our community who may be unfamiliar or uninterested in traditional gospel music. We carefully choose music that people love to sing but that also offers a wholesome message to introduce our faith. This unique blend of positive secular and traditional faith based music has become the signature sound of the Hearts Afire ministry.
Hearts Afire offers inspirational music of various genres for all to enjoy. It's our desire to create a fun and worshipful experience for all who hear us and introduce Christ to those who might be somewhat apprehensive in a traditional “church” setting or with traditional “church music”.

Hearts Afire also had the honor of being chosen to perform on Christian Artist Talent Search aired on Inspiration Channel hosted by Jason Crabb.
