What took place in Austin and in Nashville in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s was very little significantly less than a tectonic change in nation music. From Tennessee to Texas, musicians were breaking regulations, flouting tradition and acknowledged approaches of earning songs and undertaking small business in what would turn into the most important sport changer of them all. They Named Us Outlaws: The Cosmic Cowboys, Honky Tonk Heroes and Increase of the Renegade Troubadours is essentially 6 films functioning 12 several hours with about 100 artists — luminaries from the era and torchbearers using it forward.
A 10 years in the building and currently in the last phases of creation by Geadelmann (author/director/producer/govt producer/cinematographer/music producer) and Denver-primarily based Kelly Magelky (producer/director of pictures/editor), the impartial job, They Termed Us Outlaws will feature around 100 interviews and consist of quite a few State Music Hall of Fame and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame members, as well as luminaries throughout various genres and generations like: Emmylou Harris, Roger McGuinn, Bobby Bare, Charlie McCoy, Al Kooper, Chris Gantry, Michael Martin Murphey, Billy F.

What began as a one, indie film – 3,707 days ago – on so-called ‘outlaw country’ someway turned a twelve-hour motion picture document of an era, that gives portraits of a multitude of outstanding artists, songwriters, musicians and producers — some well-identified and some others much more obscure — who had (& have) the braveness to adhere to what’s inside themselves…regardless of industry pressures and societal norms.
The historical and cultural importance of their tales are echoed by a multitude of existing singer-songwriters that embody the independent ethos of the ‘do it their way’ heroes. Together with the large group at the State Tunes Hall of Fame and Museum and their partnership during its Outlaws & Armadillos exhibit, as very well as a group of like-hearted and like-minded financiers from Austin and Nashville, I really don’t think any of this would be feasible with no Jessi Colter. Her soulfulness and spirituality served as our guidebook — she’s the heartbeat of this movie collection.
In addition to Geadelmann, Magelky and Colter, the team behind They Referred to as Us Outlaws consists of multi-time Academy of Region Songs award-winner and Grammy-nominee, Jack Ingram (narrator and executive producer), 9-time Grammy winner, Ray Benson (government producer), audio entertainment govt Ken Levitan (executive producer), acclaimed singer-songwriter Kimmie Rhodes (co-producer), musician/journalist Michael Simmons (associate producer) and consulting producers: author Joe Nick Patoski (Willie Nelson An Epic Daily life, Stevie Ray Vaughan: Caught In the Crossfire etcetera), and Tamara Saviano (writer and filmmaker, Devoid of Acquiring Killed or Caught).

The Region Tunes Hall of Fame and Museum also forged a distinctive partnership with Geadelmann, who served as a co-curator of the museum’s new important exhibition Outlaws & Armadillos: Country’s Roaring ’70s. The exhibit, which not long ago shut immediately after a thriving four-year operate, highlighted archival footage together with special interviews captured by Geadelmann and Magelky through the broader They Termed Us Outlaws challenge.
Geadelmann will return to the museum as element of AmericanaFest to screen an unique phase of They Identified as Us Outlaws centered on the famous Austin songs venue Armadillo Planet Headquarters.
