Crazy | 2006
Inspired by the life of Hank Garland, a legendary musician who joined the Grand Ol' Opry at 15 and rose to fame in the early 1950s as Nashville's premiere session guitarist. Garland's immense, innovative talents grace the timeless recordings of such music icons as Elvis Presley, The Everly Brothers, Roy Orbison and Patsy Cline. In 1961, he startled the music world by jumping genres from country and pop to jazz with the release of "Jazz Winds From A New Direction," a tour de force that to this day is considered an all-time classic jazz album. Tragically, a near-fatal car crash cut Garland's extraordinary career short. Bur forty-three years later, his stunning artistic triumphs live on in countless records.
