XPN-’The Secret to a Happy Ending’: Film-The Drive By Truckers
XPN Welcomes The Secret to a Happy Ending: A Film about The Drive By Truckers
January 25, 2011
THE SECRET TO A HAPPY ENDING documents the Drive-By Truckers and their congregation of fans as they explore tales of human weakness and redemption. Filmmaker Barr Weissman followed the band during three critical years of touring and recording — years in which the band struggles to overcome the trauma of divorce and survives a near breakup. The film features band interviews, behind-the-scenes footage on the road and in the studio, and legendary live performances.
Reflective of the band’s roots in Alabama and Georgia, the film explores the changing American South — its culture, economy and
history. (101 minutes, 2010)
