Once in a blue moon, a filmmaker hits record at precisely the right moment to capture lightning in a bottle. It happened in ’76 with music doc 'Heartworn Highways,’ which follows key players in the outlaw country music of the 1970s. Emboldened by the radical 60s, country musicians in Tennessee and Texas rejected the commercial “Nashville sound” and returned country music to its rougher honky-tonk roots. This episode of The Light In The Attic Podcast goes behind the scenes of our reissue of the soundtrack to this cult classic documentary that captured Guy Clark, Townes Van Zandt, Jerry Jeff Walker, David Allan Coe, Steve Young, Steve Earle and many others before they hit it real big.
