Billy Mize move update

Some good could be said about social media.  Without it, we might not have heard about the movie “Billy Mize & The Bakersfield Sound.”  And we certainly wouldn’t have heard this week that the film is finished and slated to be premiered at the Los Angeles Film Festival on June 14.  And we absolutely wouldn’t have been able to arrange to speak with the film maker Joe Saunders about his movie about his grandfather, Billy Mize.  Big thanks to Joe for taking time out east coast time to speak with us.  Congratulations on the completion of the film which took seven years.

Not only was Billy Mize a songwriter and singer, but he made the pedal steel sing.
