This year marks the 38th anniversary of the seminal music documentary, Heartworn Highways, a film that captured the nascent roots of the Outlaw Country movement in the mid-70’s. Inspired by the original filmmakers’ quest, Heartworn Highways Revisited will journey into the simple heart of a similar contemporary community.
Like Guy Clark, Townes Van Zandt, Steve Earle and David Allen Coe, today’s outlaws make up an extended family of musicians that often collaborate and tour together, but stand distinctly on their own. This group includes John McCauley (of Deer Tick), Jonny Fritz (aka: Corndawg), Josh Hedley, Justin Townes Earle, Shovels & Rope, Langhorne Slim, Robert Ellis, Shelly Colvin, Phil Hummer, amongst others.
Filming, which wrapped this past June in Nashville, aimed to capture honest moments with the musicians in various intimate settings. Steve Young, David Allan Coe, and Guy Clark have each participated. Performances aim to be as true and nuanced as those portrayed in Heartworn Highways.
HH Revisited is currently in post production and will debut in early 2014 across platforms, from feature film to the web.
