It's been a few years since Katie Herzig hung her hat here, but we still very much consider the former Newcomers Home singer to be one of our own. The Fort Collins native has made quite a name for herself since moving to Nashville, including having a number of her songs placed on Grey's Anatomy. Those who caught the show this past Thursday, in fact, heard "Hollogram" from her latest record, 2008's Apple Tree. Prior to that, Herzig has had three other songs placed, including "Where the Road Meets the Sun," which was featured prominently in the season finale last spring. You can catch Herzig in a few weeks when she returns home for a pair of shows at Everyday Joe's in Fort Collins on Monday, October 12, and B-Side Lounge in Boulder on Tuesday, October 13. In the meantime, check out the Frito-Lay commercial above, which features Herzig's song "Two Hearts Are Better Than One" as part of that company's Made For Each Other campaign.
