Pitchfork made the music documentary on Outlaw Country in the 1970s, Heartworn Highways by James Szalapski, available on YouTube for streaming until 4pm EST tomorrow on March 19th.  It features the music of Townes van Zandt, Guy Clark, Steve Earle, Larry Jon Wilson, David Allan Coe, and The Charlie Daniels Band among others.  I highly recommend it.  A great piece on a time and a place of talented and humble musicians.

Heartworn Highways (1976)

Great lines…
Townes Van Zandt: Don’t ever point a loaded gun at a caged animal.

Note:  Be sure to stick around for the DVD extras, especially the drunken Christmas party.
