Synopsis

Doug Morrione (B.A., Colby College, M.A., The New School for Social Research) is an award-winning television producer and filmmaker currently based in Dubai, UAE.

Doug raised money through a Kickstarter campaign and moved to New Mexico to document the lives of four iconic cowboy characters: Gary McMahan – a national champion yodeler, legendary songwriter and poet; Jeff Nourse – a fourth generation cattle rancher, cowboy singer and iron sculptor; Brice Chapman – trick roper, farrier and animal trainer; and Yvonne Hollenbeck – an award-winning hand-stitch quilt maker, cowgirl poet and ranch wife.

The resulting film, Everything in the Song is True, is a hilarious and moving cowboy music and poetry doc about hard work and preserving a unique legacy of The American West.
