Heartworn Highways

‘Heartworn Highways’ is a film from James Szalapski, documentary filmmaker. There are several performances from young and up and coming country singers including Townes Van Zandt, the Charlie Daniels Band, Gamble Rogers, David Allan Coe, Guy Clark, Steve Earle and many others. These performers are shown in their rough stages, still outside the Nashville establishment and pushing for a bigger appreciation of the roots of Nashville songwriting. Van Zandt, a new singer/songwriter, famous for such tunes as “If You Needed Me” and "Pancho & Lefty,” emerged as one of Nashville’s most acclaimed songwriters, but this film takes us to his roots before he became famous. The film also shows the talents of singer/songwriter Gamble Rogers in a light hearted night club performance. Guy Clark rambles about his kindle knife in an array of songs, written by the maestro himself and performed in his kitchen. David Allan Coe, who is an outlaw in his own right, helped bring the film a little bit of campy fun with his concert at a prison and his talking about a criminal past. The Charlie Daniels Band is on fire while getting ready for a big show. There are other musicians involved in the film including a fairly unknown Rodney Crowell, Steve Earle and Steve Young . Many of these musicians appear at a party held at Clark’s house. It really takes the music fan back to what real country music was like, and how the Americana brand of music really got its name. The film was shot in the mid-seventies, though not officially released until 1981. By the time of its release, many of the singer/songwriters had already made a statement to the country through their music.
