Sold Out World Premiere

Our trip to the Nashville Film Festival was nothing short of amazing. We were honored to sell out at the Sunday showing, have Ms. Betty Louvin, Sonny, and Charlie's grandson in the front row, among family and friends who attended was only fitting. The panel discussion afterwards shed light on Charlie as a person and artist. Rodney Crowell, Jim Lauderdale, Brett Steele, and Peter Cooper shared the conversation with Keith and Blake, a great review of the entire event is can be found under press, "The Boot". Everyone shared in the tribute, many thanks.

The film is taking shape.

We've been busy with the project and we've had some additions to the film. John McCrea sat down with us and discussed in length Charlie's impact on him. As well, Ms. Alison Krauss spent time with us June 7th in Nashville. She was such an incredible addition to Charlie's tribute. With all the new material our editing is in over drive. We're working at Neltner Creative this weekend in Camp Springs, KY in a 2-3 day session. Our release goal may push back a few weeks but we just couldn't pass up all the incredible stars aligning, we'll continue to update everyone.
