The official motion picture premiere of independent film “Like A Country Song,” featuring Billy Ray Cyrus is scheduled to take place during “country music’s biggest week” (CMA Fest-2014) on Thursday, June 5, 2014 at the Regal Cinema (3815 Green Hills Village Dr.) in Nashville, TN. The evening will commence with a cast/celebrity red carpet event at 6:00 PM; the film is scheduled to screen at 7:30PM.
Produced and directed by Johnny Remo, alongside Daniel Backman (co-producer) and Tammy Hyler (co-producer/music supervisor) and executive producers Megan and Allan Camaisa (CEO of Risen Media and Risen Magazine), “Like A Country Song” explores “life happens” experiences of a talented and emerging country singer and reveals the personal character flaws, hurdles and unexpected challenges hindering the momentum of a hopeful career.
“The story premise alone makes for a solid country song and we filmed in Nashville, so we thought it most appropriate to celebrate the release in Music City as part of our multi-city premiere schedule,” says Johnny Remo, Director and Producer, SkipStone Pictures. “The film was shot at some of Nashville’s “must-see” entertainment venues (such as The Listening Room Cafe and The Station Inn) and at the Music Row sound/production studio The Tater Shack, while the soundtrack features a collection of songs from a select group of Music Row publishing companies. We are pleased to introduce the piece before our friends in the country music entertainment sector and its fans.”
Billy Ray Cyrus is poised to make a special appearance at Nashville’s world premiere event, joined by the starring cast and music and film executives, to walk to the red carpet before media, fans and film enthusiasts. In company with Cyrus, the film boasts a decorated cast featuring Joel Smallbone [lead singer of the Christian Rock duo For King & Country (named Billboard Magazine’s 2012 “New Artists To Watch,” the reigning Dove Awards “New Artist Of The Year” and Australia’s TRAA “Artist Of The Year”) and co-producer/star of the movie “Taken”] and Booboo Stewart of the critically acclaimed series “Twilight Saga: Eclipse, Breaking Dawn Part I and Part II” and the upcoming major motion picture “X-Men: Days Of Future Past” (set for a May 2014 release). The “Like A Country Song” leading actors and other cast members will be available for red carpet interviews and media opportunities prior to the movie premiere event.
Celebrity guests/country music stars who have demonstrated early support and confirmed their red carpet participation/premiere attendance include: Jamie O’Neal (“When I Think About Angels”/“There Is No Arizona”), Joe Nichols (“Sunny and 75”/“Tequila Makes Her Take Her Clothes Off”), Collin Raye (“Love, Me”/“I Can Still Feel You”) Jana Kramer and Jennifer Wayne.
