Jim Waive and the Young Divorcees
When Jim Waive and the Young Divorcees played Fridays after Five on (surprise!) Friday, Mr. Waive announced that he and the band are featured in a soon-to-be-completed movie called, “My Fool Heart.” It’s billed as a comedy, though the story has a dark-sounding basis at (ahem) it’s heart.
MY FOOL HEART is the story of a down-on-his-luck musician whose estranged wife hires two men from London to kill him. Jim Waive, the star of the film, is in real life also the leader of a four-piece country band, Jim Waive and the Young Divorcees.
The movies is full of music and includes acting turns by a host of music legends including Dr. Ralph Stanley and Wayne Henderson.
The film is set in Charlottesville, Southwest Virginia, and Nashville.
Looks like this could be fun to see, and to hear.
