Amber Hayes Lands Role In 'Cowgirls N' Angels' Film
Country recording artist Amber Hayes has been cast in her debut movie role in the family-friendly, rodeo-themed motion picture, Cowgirls N' Angels," due out in 2012.
Hayes, an accomplishede former theater performer, plays a supporting role in the film as honky tonk singer Amber Grant. Hayes' original songs "C'mon" and "Right As Rain," from her 2010 EP release C'mon, are featured prominently in the movie and on the Cowgirls N' Angels soundtrack. One unreleased track, a heart-wrenching ballad written specifically for the film by the rising country star and titled "Always There For Me," is also included.
"This was such a thrill for me to be cast in Cowgirls N' Angels," says Hayes. "I'm really grateful to the cast and crew and director Timothy Armstrong for including me and my music in the film, and I had a wonderful time trying my hand at something new. I'm so excited to see the finished movie next year!"
The film is Hayes' first motion picture role, though she has starred in several successful theater productions, including her role performance as Kathy Twitty in the 2008 critically acclaimed Conway Twitty musical, It's Only Make Believe.
"I couldn't be more pleased with Amber Hayes," says director Timothy Armstrong. "She brought great style and personality to Cowgirls N' Angels. Her amazing voice and songwriting skills helped create a wonderful honky tonk scene, which is an important part of the movie. The song she wrote, "Always There For Me," is heartbreakingly beautiful and has been chosen to be featured prominently in another scene in the movie. She is great talent!"
Hayes' current single, "Wait," continues to climb charts at Country radio, with the song's music video receiving airplay on multiple networks including Yallwire, where it debuted at No. 1 on the site's Top 100 chart.
Co-written by Timothy Armstrong and Stephen Blinn, Cowgirls N' Angels is the coming-of-age story of Ida Clayton, a rebellious young girl in search of her rodeo-riding father. On her journey, Clayton meets and joins the Sweethearts of the Rodeo, an all-female group of riders organized by former rodeo star Terence Parker (played by James Cromwell).
