using the song as a theme song for the project. I have also talked to Willie Nelson about the
project and we have the door open to pitch the idea to use "On The Road Again." I have also
talked to Jackson Browne's office and have a green light to use "Running On Empty" and some
of the cuts off that album.
17. I've been spending time doing further research on the script with info on Troubadours and
Medicine Shows, and some personal history about our Troubadours from their own personal
archives, and the Icons that they play with, like Woody Gutherie, Bob Dylan, Buddy Holly,
Lefty Frizzell, Merle Haggard and other greats.
18. I've had talks with a number of major artist to let us do shoots of them for the series that
includes Jackson Browne, Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, and a number of other acts.
At this time in the biz...there is not an artist that would now want the exposure of their work and
career that this project offers.
19. We plan to target the area that most artist travel a number of times each year between
Los Angeles and San Francisco. There is not an artist in the music business that is not
traveling north or south on Interstate 5 or the 101. To keep our production and travel time to a
minimum we will schedule with artist on these two main roads and during concerts that these
highways take them to.
