It stars Stephen Dorff as Wheeler Bryson. The legend Kris Kristofferson also stars in the movie. Wheeler is the story of an aspiring musician from Kaufman, Texas who travels to Nashville with the lifelong dream of trying his hand at country music. By embodying the title character under prosthetic make up, actor Stephen Dorff successfully infiltrates Music City and takes his character on an authentic singer / songwriter journey. With the help of key allies on the ground, “Wheeler” converses with real people in real locations, with every musical number performed live. The line between reality and fiction blurs as Wheeler chases his dream in this touching tribute to old school country legends.
Stephen’s brother Andrew was one of Nashville’s best songwriters but tragically died back in December, but not before contributing to one of Wheeler‘s centerpiece songs, the radio-ready “Pour Me Out of This Town,” which he wrote with his brother and veteran songwriter Bobby Tomberlin, who accompanied Dorff on guitar during his Opry debut.
