hollywood county line

A web based backstage reality music show...from Hollywood, California.  So rock

you can roll with it, so country you can step in it...

 

HOLLYWOOD COUNTY LINE  is a weekly show that'll feature the country, western, country

rock, roots, alt-country, bluegrass and country folk music from tune-town Nashville to the Austin

outlaw music scene, from the Village in New York, to the Haight in Frisco and back to our

very own West Coast country sound at the Hollywood County Line.

Not unlike the situation in Austin back in the days when the guys creating "Austin City

Limits" saw a great music energy happening, and wanted to capture it on film and take the

Austin scene to the rest of the country...

 

LA has a huge country scene that is ready to burn down the barn...and because we are in

Hollywood, every act from Austin to Nashville has a need to "do Hollywood," so the talent

stream from Austin the sounds here in the real West.

 

Another important element of the show at this time is the local reality that KZLA the

one and only country radio station has dropped the country format, leaving no country

stations in LA County.  I think that this could fill a void in the LA area.  Could be  great

show to not only reach an audience, but serve as a medium for advertising of other

country events.

 

 

 

HOLLYWOOD COUNTY LINE is a mix of hot national headline acts, opening acts by local

and/or upcoming  talent, and a jammin' house band, THE BUNKHOUSE BOYS, that can not

only rock the house and entertain on their own, but can back up any famous artists that we

bring to the stage. 

 

For the pilot and a DVD on LA Country music in the summer of 2006 we have

shot the following:

 

American Idol winner goes to the top of the country charts, and in April this year most of the Idol contenders are singing country songs, Jimmie Buffet hits the country charts in duet with Allen Jackson, Bon Jovi hits # 1 on country and pop charts with Sugar Land's Jennifer Nettles.  Kenny Chesney is #3 top earning musician 2005, just behind U2 and the Rolling Stones.  Shania Twain and Faith Hill cross over to the top of the pop charts, the Eagles are played on the country stations, Robin Williams next movie he plays a cowboy, and Broke Back Mountain has Hollywood abuzz, Van Morrison releases a country CD, and special on CMT from the Ryman in Nashville, and country act Little Big Town is on road with John Mellencamp,  Dire Straits' Mark Knopfler is out with Emmylou Harris, Bee Gee Barry Gibb just bought Johnny Cash's house and is moving to Nashville, Bob Dylan has been touring for the past year with Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard and Junior Brown, and wearing cowboy outfits with a ten gallon hat and a band that verges on being a Texas Swing band...

 

 

I have a huge list of other potential acts to line up.  The talent list is endless

 

The Cowbelles

 

Since the barn dances of old, country music and dancin' cowgirls goes together like hay

and horses.  The Cowbelles add fun and beauty to the show each night.  These hip swingin

drink slingin, denim and diamonds, leather and lace wearin, boot skootin cowbelles in tight

fittin jeans fit right in with the music.  Might see the cowbelles dancin on a table, a bail of

hay, on the stage, or out on the dance floor...eeeeeeeehaw.

 

Another fun part of the night is the Celeb Jam each night...we will have celebs

come up and do a couple songs with the Bunkhouse Band.  We have already had

Jeffery Steele, Buck Page, Joey Covington, from the Jefferson Airplane, and

others.  This is a special "surprise" element of the show.  And because we are in

Hollywood, you never know who might show up.    

 

We will have the creative blend of Country Music...dancing, interviews with the artists and

band members, shots from sound checks...a fun backstage look at a band performing

Part of the night will be a look at  behind the scene, and fun interviews with the band and

the performers.

meets Coyote Ugly Saloon meets the CMT Outlaw Specials in a multimedia

format...however, not all the show is about performance.  We are going to interview

the stars, their band members backstage, on their busses and give the viewer a

personal look at the talent each night and some of their past stories.
