HEARTWORN HIGHWAYS (1975) explored the roots of outlaw country music, offering rare insight into the lives of pioneering musicians who set the bar for those to come. The film portrays an emotional landscape driven by music and joins these artists in their lives at home, in the studio and on stage, authentically depicting a community rarely entered by outsiders.
This classic documentary features stirring performances from legendary songwriters Townes Van Zandt, Guy Clark, David Allan Coe, Steve Young, Rodney Crowell, Gamble Rogers, Steve Earle, Barefoot Jerry and the Charlie Daniels Band.
