Singer/songwriter Roger Miller is profiled through rare performance footage spanning his genre-defying career.
Description by Kultur Films:
This is the definitive profile of the singer/songwriter, whose amazing career placed him on the top of both the country and pop music charts and on Broadway.
A comprehensive documentary about country music great Roger Miller.
The video follows the life of this Grammy Award-winning star from his early years, growing up poor on an Oklahoma farm; to Miller's struggle to become an established musician; his rise as a popular songwriter and recording artist; and his death from cancer in 1992. Also covered is Miller's success on Broadway as composer of the music in "Big River," which earned him a Tony Award.
In the process, you'll hear some of his best-known tunes including, of course, "King of the Road."
Helping to tell the fascinating story of Miller's life are some of his closest buddies -- fellow country music stars Waylon Jennings (who narrates), Johnny Cash, Kris Kristofferson and Willie Nelson.
