THE SONG - Coming soon!

I'm excited to tell you about an upcoming movie for which I received a press release, and I am doubly thrilled to be scheduled for an interview at ICRS with the man who has the lead role. Alan Powell, lead singer of Anthem Lights, will star in THE SONG as aspiring singer/songwriter Jed King as he struggles to catch a break and escape the long shadow of his father, a country music legend. After reluctantly accepting a gig at a local vineyard harvest festival, Jed is love-struck by the vineyard owner’s daughter, Rose (Ali Faulkner), and a romance quickly blooms. Soon after their wedding, Jed writes Rose “The Song,” which becomes a breakout hit. Thrust into a life of stardom and a world of temptation in the form of fellow performer Shelby Bale (Caitlin Nicol-Thomas), Jed’s life and marriage begin to fall apart.

The film was written and directed by Richard Ramsey and produced by City on a Hill Studio. The story is a modern-day adaptation of the life and writings of Solomon, found in the Song of Solomon and Ecclesiastes. Samuel Goldwyn Films will release the film on September 26th.

“Richard Ramsey has created an incredibly touching and triumphant film about temptation, redemption and the power of forgiveness. We are proud to bring this moving and inspirational love story to the big screen and I’m certain it will resonate with audiences around the country,” said Meyer Gottlieb, President of Samuel Goldwyn Films.

THE SONG was filmed on location in Nashville and Kentucky – known for American music and family. Both figure heavily in the film. Music is more than a score in THE SONG; it is the backdrop from which the story unfolds. Viewers who love American music, indie singer-songwriters or dream of the allure of the road, will especially love THE SONG.

Produced by a top-notch group of story tellers who believe in love, faith and family, THE SONG is opening nation-wide including resources to strengthen couples and families.
