The film captures his heart and soul and the man behind this dynamic live performance, backed by a quartet of Nashville's finest players, Kenny Vaughan on guitar, Rick Lonow on drums, Gene Dunlap on keys, and Dave Pomeroy on bass. Dave produced the film, which was directed by Seth Pomeroy, and which includes 4 documentary inserts illuminating the incredible story of the greatest artist you ALMOST never heard of.
