‘Heartworn Highways’ Documentaries Coming To DVD

Heartworn Highways, a 1975 film that intimately explores the roots of outlaw country music, is being re-released on DVD April 6, along with Heartworn Highways Revisited, where the filmmakers reunite with the Heartworn originals Guy Clark, Steve Young, and David Allan Coe while focusing on the next generation of outlaws.

The original 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, while the Revisited film includes a focus on the new generation of trailblazers including John McCauley, Jonny Fritz, Josh Hedley, Justin Townes Earle, Shovels & Rope, Langhorne Slim, Robert Ellis, Andrew Combs, Shelly Colvin, Phil Hummer and others who honor the tradition of their predecessors while forging a highway all their own.

2016 marked the 40th anniversary of the seminal music documentary that offered a glimpse into the lives of these artists and captured the nascent roots of the Outlaw Country movement in the mid-1970s.
