I may be a day late and a dollar short, just because there has been one thing after another going on in this crazy city #nashville . I had the honor to attend the 1st @nsaiofficial #2018nsaiawards for @focus_on_the_615 My photos are not that great, but maybe you can guess who some of these folks are in each one? @whisperinbillanderson was one of the special honorees, being presented with the #KrisKristofferson lLifetime Achievement Award. His speech was incredible.

This is a song inspired by a conversation I had with someone a while back when I first got serious about making some changes in my life. He said “Aaron I’ve got good news and bad. Good: anytime your going through something bad or difficult in life guess what: it comes to and end! Bad: anytime your having the time of your life guess what: it comes to an end too! That’s why it’s important to stay connected to the source of all things: the creator” It’s called “Everlasting” Hope ya dig it
To bring the story of Mary Evans-turned-Mona Blodgett-turned-Esther Blodgett-turned-Vicki Lester and her teaching figure, Norman Maine, to life, Selznick cast two Academy Award winners. Which, in 1937, was not all that easy a thing to do as, with the awards being just eight years old, there simply weren't alot of Oscar-winning actors to pick from. But Frederic March was chosen for Norman Maine, a role that would--thankfully, as March saw it--end a streak of nine costume dramas. He had won his Oscar trophy for his star dual role in "Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde." Janet Gaynor, making up with charm and likeability what she was lacking in youth, would play the innocent farm girl (now written as having come from North Dakota instead of Canada) with her cap set on a Hollywood career. Gaynor had achieved quite a feat, having won not just the first Academy Award given to an actress--but having won that award for three separate films. (Voting was a bit different in 1929.) Her good girl personality had fallen out of favor a few years earlier but she still delivered good box office results. And though she and director William Wellman had loudly fought all through production of a movie they had just wrapped, "Small Town Girl", Wellman agreed she was the best possible candidate to bring Esther Blodgett to the screen.
Got randomly selected to be on the Nominating Committee for the SAGAFTRA Awards. Have been to a bunch of great screenings of movies so far, but this one is special and one of my favorites so far. Don’t be surprised if this wins a ton of accolades. @starisbornmovie
