In February of 2013, the Barnes Brothers attempted to shoot a documentary about the lives of Todd Snider, Elizabeth Cook and other touring songwriters residing in the burgeoning East Nashville neighborhood.
Instead, drugs and booze took over.
They ended up with: East Nashville Tonight
Brad and I first me Todd Snider in NYC in 2002.
We shot for 17 hours that first day making a music video for "Stuck All Night".
At the time I asked Todd not to smoke pot during the shoot because "we might see it in his eyes".
That seems pretty silly to me now.
