“We all hum their tunes. We know their words by heart. And we tell the story of our own lives through their art. Yet, few of us know their names. This is a film about one of the most important and unknown, forces in music: The Nashville Songwriter. We will tell their story in a way it has never been told. We will document their struggles. From paying their dues to working through their creative process. We will celebrate their success. From the eureka moment of uncovering that musical gem that turns into a hit to receiving a Grammy and hearing how their words and music change people’s lives. But most of all, we pay tribute to the most valuable resource in the music industry today.”
Its only March, but It All Begins With A Song is my early favorite for documentary of the year. It certainly helps that I’m a huge fan of country music, but besides that, this documentary is very meaningful. While 95% of the music they talk about is country, they still dive into a few other genres. Regardless, these are the stories you don’t get to normally hear. It’s a look into the great minds that create hit after hit. I still can’t fathom how hits continue to get created. You would think eventually everything would have been made. Nope. This is what makes these people great!
All I have to say is, if you don’t want to watch the full hour and a half, at least tune in to the 1:07:00 mark and watch the story behind “I Drive Your Truck.” Holy hell! Truly amazing. I had chills the entire time. Make sure you have tissues ready. I’ll never listen to that song again without envisioning this story.
There are some pretty awesome guest appearances too. Some of these include, Garth Brooks, Brad Paisley, Luke Bryan, Ben Folds, Kacey Musgraves, and Kelsea Ballerini.
It All Begins With A Song is currently streaming on Amazon, iTunes, Google Play, FlixFling, Vimeo on Demand, and Vudu. As long as you’re a fan of music, but especially if you love country music, THIS IS A MUST WATCH!
