Songs. We shower to them, we make love to them, we take road trips to them... everyone knows who sings them, but who wrote them?


BEN FOLDS was the frontman and pianist for Ben Folds Five and has collaborated with William Shatner, Weird Al, Sara Bareilles, and Regina Spektor. He was a judge on the popular NBC series, "Sing Off," which catapulted the art of a cappella into the national spotlight.

JONATHAN CAIN joined the rock band Journey in 1980 composing and playing piano on "Don't Stop Believin'", described by Allmusic as "one of the best opening keyboard riffs in rock." He was also the sole author of the classic Journey ballad "Faithfully".

"born in bristol: the untold story of the birth of country music"

Everyone knows where Rock n' Roll came from, but no one knows where Country Music was born. Combining fictional reality (re-enactments that play more like scenes from a narrative movie) and interviews with Country Music legends such as Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris, Vince Gill, Marty Stuart, Steve Earle, and Sheryl Crow, this documentary feature film shines a light on one of the most unrecognized yet momentous occasions in Country Music history: The 1927 Bristol Sessions, where popular Country Music had its commercial birth.
