I have talked up this movie and soundtrack since the day I bought it in '05. I was on a pretty hard Townes kick living out of a truck for the summer. A man at a New Paltz, NY record store convinced me that this dvd and cd would be lifetime favorites. He was right. Five years , three girlfriends, and 3,000 miles away this is still at the top of the rotation.
Now, the movie Crazy Heart is one of the best movie's of the year and I think Heartworn's impact on the making of that movie cannot be denied.
