BMT to be on a movie soundtrack

Blue Mother Tupelo's music is going to be featured in an upcoming movie: Daltry Calhoun (release date: September 23).

From IMDb.com: The Knoxville, Tennessee-set film is a dark comedy about a father (Daltry Calhoun, played by Johnny Knoxville) struggling to keep his once lucrative Tennessee golfing empire intact when his estranged 14-year-old daughter (a gifted musician) is unexpectedly left in his care. Quentin Tarantino is the Executive Producer.

Listen for Micol's voice and Ricky's guitars & dobro during the last scene of the movie. They're singin' & playin' BMT's version of the 1959 Paul Anka classic, "Put Your Head On My Shoulder."

Two versions of the song were recorded for the movie: A southern ballad version (that you'll hear in the film) and a down home foot-stompin' throwdown version. Both are included on the movie's soundtrack CD, but, the footstompin' version is included as a hidden bonus track... so you won't see it listed on the outline of the songs. (The soundtrack will be in stores in conjunction with the release of the movie.)

Micol & Ricky got to attend a screening of Daltry Calhoun earlier this year before it was finished. They really liked it... so we'll all have to check it out when it comes out in September!
