Just some random tidbits here:
- Last Rites of Ransom Pride (outdated and non-representative of the real movie) trailer is now online and viewable, this is the movie that stars Kris Kristofferson, Dwight Yoakam, and script by Ray Wylie Hubbard (more info on the site) EDIT: According to Judy Hubbard this is not the trailer for the movie, rather a scene that was shot last year to drum up support for the movie. The real movie is set to debut at this year’s Toronto Film Festival in September. More info here. Here’s to hoping an official trailer comes out soon.
- Todd Snider divulged in a recent interview with Paste that he is working on a book based on his infamous stories. Said he gave the writer Dennis Cook a copy of the Moondawg’s Tavern boot, a few phone numbers, and told him to find the “real story”. Book is going to be called “Almost Everything I Say Is True“
- Chris Knight announced The Trailer Tapes II will be released this September, but….BUT!…you can pre-order now and get an immediate download & get the physical CD in the mail (some have already gotten their’s, and early reviews are that this thing is as good as the first Trailer Tapes)
- Good news for you Backsliders fans out there. Chip Robinson (lead singer of The Backsliders) has a new one coming out in November on Red River Records called Mylow, which can also be pre-ordered and they will feature custom packaging, signature, and early shipment
