Heartworn Highways Set for DVD Release

Director James Szalapski’s 1975 documentary Heartworn Highways is set for DVD release on Aug. 22. Documenting the Austin and Nashville music scenes during the mid-’70s, the film centers around several notable singer-songwriters who were relatively unknown at the time. It includes performances by Guy Clark, Steve Young, Rodney Crowell, Steve Earle, John Hiatt, Charlie Daniels, Gamble Rogers and the late Townes Van Zandt. Heartworn Highways has been re-edited, color corrected and remastered for the DVD that includes more than one hour of unreleased footage. Clark, Young and film producer Graham Leader will participate in a question-and-answer session following the film’s July 24 screening in Nashville at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s Ford Theater. 07/02/03
