Nashville, TN – May 10, 2013 – A new family film, INSPIRATION POP 2929, received a star-studded music city welcome as the film premiered at a special invitation-only, VIP screening earlier this week at TBN in Nashville, TN. Music icons Barbara Mandrell & the Mandrell Sisters made their way onto the red carpet in support of singer/songwriter Christy Sutherland (Barbara's daughter-in-law) as she made her acting debut. Alongside the talented women, country music superstar Larry Gatlin, who appears in the film and performs a song written especially for the film, walked onto the carpet followed by Grammy award winning Christian vocalist Jason Crabb. Crabb also made his acting debut in the film and contributed a song to the soundtrack and also performs in the movie. Hollywood actors Jackie Stewart, Britt George and Whitney Goin - all who had starring roles - were on hand to walk as well.
Set in the small fictional American southern town of Mountain Brook, INSPIRATION POP 2929, follows a diverse cast of characters as they struggle in their lives. A young musician wishes to share his gift with a larger audience; a widow copes with the death of her soldier daughter; a small business owner sacrifices her freedom for the safety of a young runaway; a mechanic finds a family by finding his faith; and a man and woman strengthen their marriage by seeking the Lord's wisdom. The main theme in this film is that you too can live a life of irrefutable success if you learn and act upon the things that God has revealed to you! It asks, "Am I truly listening?"
The film stars Jackie Stewart (Sling Blade, A Time To Kill), Whitney Goin (Nickelodeon, Letters To God, A Measure of Faith), Britt George (Las Vegas, Burning Hollywood, Dragnet) Larry Gatlin (Grammy Winner, Country Music Superstar), Jason Crabb (Grammy Winner, Christian Music Male Vocalist & Artist of The Year), Christy Sutherland (Award winning singer/songwriter, Daughter in law of Barbara Mandrell), Regina McCrary and many more.
This inspirational journey is projected over an original Country Gospel and Contemporary Christian soundtrack, with artists including Grammy Award winners Jason Crabb and Larry Gatlin, Christy Sutherland, Regina McCrary and the McCrar Sisters, Terri Sharp, Andrew Greer, Andrea Thomas, Paul Reter, Rob Rainwater, American Idol's Jimmy Smith, JR Hood, Devin Belle, the Lee University Campus Choir and many more.
INSPIRATION POP 2929 is moving forward with a select theatrical release and a special "producers cut" edition DVD of the movie can be ordered online at www.INSPIRATIONPOP2929Movie.com.
