“My Song in a Movie? Really?”

» Posted on Feb 13, 2015 | Comments Off on “My Song in a Movie? Really?”

About 18 months ago a friend of mine told me about a movie production company that was looking for songs from Ohio songwriters for a movie. I told him I would submit songs and then promptly forgot to submit anything. But, sometimes, good things happen to bad people: I was blown away when I got an e-mail from the movie producer at Skoche Films asking if they could put one of of my songs in their upcoming movie. (I guess my friend sent them my songs, because he knew I’d probably forget). I said “Yes…in fact you can do anything you want with my songs…just get the address on the check right.” And, they got the name on the check right for sure! And, they made a pretty great movie too! It’s called “Old Fashioned” and it’s in theaters starting today. The soundtrack is on Amazon, Itunes and pretty much every where music is sold and stolen. They ended up using a song I wrote with Dan Baird (Georgia Satellites). It’s called “Ain’t Where I Used to Be.”

I’m humbled and grateful. Thanks Rik Swartzwelder and everyone that worked on Old Fashioned.
