The Rhinestone Hillbilly - A Tribute to Little Jimmy Dickens

Marketing Highlights

Country and bluegrass hero Little Jimmy Dickens was a true American icon, but he was a West Virginian first. So when the West Virginia Music Hall of Fame contacted other HOF inductees and noted Mountain State musicians about recording a tribute to the "little but proud" hillbilly hero, they enthusiastically joined the project. The compelling result: a 16-song album entitled The Rhinestone Hillbilly.

Bio

Filmed over 3500 miles in 14 states, musicians Joe Purdy and Amber Rubarth star as two strangers, both folk musicians, whose fates become intertwined after their plane is grounded in California following the September 11th attacks. Both desperately needing to get back to New York, they embark on a cross-country journey in a 1972 Chevy Van. Along the way, the duo finds solace in their mutual love of classic folk songs, and raising their voices with everyday people they meet on the road. They re-discover the healing nature of music and bear witness to a nation of people who lift each other up in the wake of tragedy.
