Garth Brooks Discusses New Lifetime Movie
Garth Brooks has recently talked with The New York Daily News about the upcoming Lifetime movie based on his song "Unanswered Prayers."
The movie, which premiered last night, is based on the song's idea about a married man wondering what his life might have been like if his relationship had worked out with another girl from high school.
Garth, who is the executive producer of the project, says, "It is the song. There's not anything in there that takes away from the song."
Uneasy about putting his song in the hands of other people, the country star says that "the lack of control that you have, you're so susceptible. It takes eight billion people to make a movie. It takes one, or two, to write a song."
Garth goes on to tell The Oklahoman, "I'm amazed anybody ever makes a movie, its got so many ways to fall apart. If you'll learn real quick that you really have no control over it, you'll be a lot better. You just don't. There's just too many hands, too many different opinions."
Happy with the outcome of the film, he goes on to say that "you just pray and look for good karma that everything kind of runs on the same theme. And this one really did. The crew was sincere, cast was sincere, and it was wonderful."
Unanswered Prayers stars Eric Close and Samantha Mathis as a happily married couple with a son. They seem to be living the American Dream, but when his high school crush returns home, he starts wondering about what might have been.
