Director: James Szalapski
Streams between April 23 – May 2

This 1976 cult classic is pulled from the archives and is a music doc that vividly captures a radical moment in country music history—the birth of outlaw country. Taking root in rock, folk and bluegrass, the genre birthed legends like Steve Earle and Townes Van Zandt in all their whiskey-slinging, rhinestone-jumpsuit-wearing, 10-gallon-cowboy-hat glory.
