I am a complete sucker for music documentaries, and the one I’m about to share with you pretty much started it all…
Heartworn Highways. Heartworn Highways is a music doc that everyone absolutely needs to see… you get a fly on the wall experience of some of the most prolific songwriters ever put on this earth. Guy Clark, Townes Van Zandt, Steve Earle, Rodney Crowell, and many many more.
This doc is filled to the brim with some of the most seemingly common yet inspiring footage of all time. A standout scene is all of these songwriters sitting around a table swapping songs and drinks on what I believe was either Christmas Eve or New Year’s Eve… this scene alone is mind boggling and that is just one of many.
Also, I just found out that they released Heartworn Highways Revisited in 2015 to celebrate the films 40th anniversary and this time they filmed the next wave of Nashville outlaw songwriters. I haven’t seen this one yet, but if it is even half as good as the first it will be downright amazing.
