The upcoming “They Called Us Outlaws” docuseries is set to feature Eric Church, Margo Price, Miranda Lambert, Charlie Daniels, Billy Joe Shaver, Brooks & Dunn and many more stars.
The new 6-part, 12-hour documentary, called “They Called Us Outlaws: Cosmic Cowboys, Honky Tonk Heroes, and the Rise of Renegade Troubadours” features nearly 90 interviews and 75 live performances.
The project is being executive produced by Jessi Colter, Ray Benson, and Jack Ingram. It will be released in association with the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.
“From the very first interview with my hero Kris Kristofferson, who set the tone for the entire project, to recent performances and interviews with my contemporaries, the push and pull relationship with the music establishment is intensely felt, but as a way to delve into truth,” Ingram says. “And the truth is, regardless of what you call them (‘outlaws’), these legends were all about ‘doing the good work,’ as Kris told us, ‘writing soulful songs.’ And that’s all any of us should aspire towards.”
As a preview of the epic documentary series, a new trailer has been released. “I have a love/hate relationship with the term ‘outlaw,'” Church says in the opening moments of the the trailer.
“They Called Us Outlaws,” written and directed by Eric Geadelman and filmed by Kelly Magelky, is slated for a 2023 release.
