Natalie Hemby Previews Puxico Documentary
BMI Nashville held a special screening for family and friends recently for songwriter Natalie Hemby‘s documentary, Puxico. The film is about Puxico, Mo. (Hemby’s grandparents’ hometown) and the town’s annual Homecoming event. The documentary originally debuted at Puxico’s Homecoming last August. Hemby co-wrote each song specifically for the film with the help of her songwriter friends Kelly Archer, Lindsay Chapman, Trent Dabbs, Jonathan and Cassandra Lawson, Jon Randall and Jen Schott. Producer Mike Wrucke led music supervision for the film.
At the event, Hemby noted, “This film isn’t just about Puxico. It’s about you and me and our hometowns. I hope this film inspires you to go back and visit and listen to the amazing stories around you.”
