On February 12, 2013 the Barnes Brothers began shooting a documentary in East Nashville, starring Todd Snider and Elizabeth Cook. Its purpose was to promote touring songwriters from the neighborhood.
Instead, drugs took over.
Instead they made…”East Nashville Tonight” – A hypothetical documentary stoner musical.
The Nashville Scene wrote, “if you’ve ever wanted to see Middle Tennessee’s world-renowned paradise of gentrified bohemia get a Cheech and Chong-worthy This Is Spinal Tap treatment, here goes.”
Here’s the film trailer:
