Songbirds, a tale of The Day the Music Died—a victim of the pandemic—is a must-see for music lovers young and old, coming to VOD August 9 on iTunes.
Chattanooga Tennessee’s Songbirds Guitar Museum showcased an unparalleled collection—the world’s largest—of rare, vintage and celebrity guitars, a priceless array of instruments worth a fortune, each with a story to tell. But the iconic museum (which opened Feb. 2017) was forced to permanently close on Aug. 15, 2020, due to the pandemic’s devastating effect on the music industry.
Directed by Dagan W. Beckett—himself a long-time professional music artist before becoming a filmmaker--this Emmy Award®-winning documentary explores how the guitar helped shape pop culture history and the final tearful hours of this one-of-a-kind place. It’s a tale told through the eyes of those who loved it most, including its founders, historians, fans and such noted music artists, who also perform in the film, as Joe Bonamassa, John Schneider, Eric Johnson, Marty Stuart, Vince Gill and John 5, among others.
