The invitation only screening was held in the conference room of SESAC on Monday, September 15th with an industry and media only preview of 'King of Broken Hearts' This film captures the essence of Jim Lauderdale being what the Americana genre is all about. Jim's story is told through on camera interviews with him, Elvis Costello, Buddy Miller John Oates and more.
