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.

    What a story. So sorry to hear about the cancer, Marideth. I hope you’re okay now and enjoying your singing, because I sure am. My CD is getting to be paper thin. 🙂

    Speaking of “Farther Along” I can’t get that song out of my head, either. It was memorable, accompanied by just the piano so one can hear that lovely voice. I would see the movie again just to hear Marideth Sisco sing, but it is too grim and sad to sit through again.

    Wow marideth, few words, huge impact!

    LOVE LOVE LOVED Winter’s Bone. I have the soundtrack, the book, and the DVD. I watched the quill reports, but didn’t realize you and Dennis were IN the movie until i rented it and watched for the first time. I literally was on my feet! HEY!! LOOKEY THERE!! (my husband thinks I’m a goon)

    Have since purchased and shared with all my kids, and brag about it all over the store. The whole town is soooooooo very proud, and the movie? Awesomeness!!

    Heartbroken to hear that you are fighting “The Beast” ….stupid Cancer just makes me angry. It’s a little time bomb in my house…kids like my molly are more likely than typical children to get Leukemia, which means if she can’t get over an ear infection in 2 trips to the doctor, we do a CBC and wait.

    They also have a remarkable remission rate, so remarkable that the scientist in Europe are studying them, looking for a cure. (yes that’s right, not in this country…grrrrrrr)

    I am hoping that your road with this beast is short and successful, and that we’ll end up being those old ladies that harrass people with their canes for many years to come.
