Kings of Leon film to premiere

July 7th, 2011 by jackgilbert

Talihina Sky is the new documentary film that explores the lives and family dynamic of the now globally synonymous Followill family.

The film is produced by Casey McGrath and explores the lives, past and present of the Kings of Leon family. The name Talihina Sky comes from the Followill family reunion which happens every year at Talihina Oklahoma.

The film will focus upon the unlikely background of the Grammy award winning band… The father of the band is a Pentecostal evangelist minister, and playing rock and roll music was very much frowned upon by the strict religious environment the boys grew up in.

Unfortunately key scenes from the film were lost when their car was stolen with filming in it. Caleb Followill, frontman of the band stated “They stole the most priceless footage. People are going to want to know more about those early days, but we don’t have it.”

Despite the lost scenes the film promises to provide an exciting insight into the family life of one of the biggest rock bands on the planet. A UK release date is yet to be revealed but the film goes out to American viewers next month.
