She said, “We just can’t get that one song out of our heads. We’d like to use it in the movie.”
What movie, I was thinking, and then I remembered. The crew that came to Rick’s house said they were scouting locations with the intent to make one of Dan’s novels into a film. It’s title, she reminded me, was to be “Winter’s Bone.” Oh yeah, I thought. Daniel’s little film about the Ozarks.
Well heck. Of course I’d like to sing a song for the film. When did they want to record it?
No, no, she said. You don’t understand. We’ve written a scene into the film for you.
Me? Craggy old over-the-hill me? Well, it’s not like it’s a MOVIE movie. It’s just a little low-budget Indie. I can do that. So I said yes. Then I got cancer.
