Filmed in the Alabama Hills just outside Lone Pine, California.
Where many other famous, and not so famous movies were filmed.

at first glance that podcast looks like a direct dose of worthy americana
people are pulling me in all four directions but maybe i can listen whilst showering
An excerpt from the Wynonna episode, as a taste:
âAfter pulling into the parking lot at the venue in Oakland, Naomi leans out her window, flashes a smile at the parking attendant and asks if it would be alright for her to park back by the busses. Oh, by the way, even though Naomi is living paycheck to paycheck and struggling to make ends meet, she drives a red â57 Chevy with a personalized license plate that says RED HOT and sheâd just put a set of whitewall tires on the thing. Thatâs the reason she gives the attendant for wanting to park by the busses instead of out in that crazy public parking lot. It works.
And, wouldnât you know it, Naomi and her daughter happen to be right there, dressed like movie stars from the 1940s, when Merle Haggard gets off the bus to walk his little dog, Tuffy. After speaking with them for a little while, Merle invites them onto the bus.
This isnât Naomiâs first brush with a famous musician. Back in Kentucky, she and her sister had met The Band one night. Levon Helm even took a liking to her, though Naomi insists she didnât go back to his hotel room and that Levon was pretty upset about it.
Here in Oakland, Merle suggests they watch the concert from the side of the stage instead of sitting out front. This is where Naomiâs version of the story ends.â
Heâs created an incredibly worthy podcast. I go at it slowly, whilst driving or gardening. Fascinating, and based on his pedigree I tend to trust him. He has some interesting introductory things that do/donât have anything to do with the meat of the podcast. But I very much believe that heâs at least reaseaching the hell out of these musicians.
All of season two is about George Jones, which includes Tammy Wynette (fascinating story). I wasnât that familiar with him, but now I think I have a pretty good grasp of his more important tunes and his career. (Fascinating story)
And most recently he explains the history of Nudie Suits, which I had no idea about. Fascinating story.
