Songwriter, guitarist and one half of the chart topping ’80s duo the Eurythmics Dave Stewart will debut his documentary, The Blackbird Diaries and The Ringmaster General, in Nashville. The film features appearances from Martina McBride , Alison Krauss  and The Secret Sisters  among others. The project captures the time spent recording his albums The Blackbird Diaries and the soon-to-be-released The Ringmaster General,which were recorded at John McBride’s Blackbird Studio in Nashville.
The premiere of The Blackbird Diaries and The Ringmaster General will take place August 22 at the Belcourt Theatre. The tongue-and-cheek documentary follows Dave through his adventures in songwriting, allowing viewers to witness his eccentric methods of creativity. His days working in Nashville were full of mayhem and martinis while Alison, Martina, The Secret Sisters, Colbie Caillat, Joss Stone, Jessie Baylin, Diane Birch and Orianthi crossed his path.
The documentary begins in London with the eruption of Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull volcano. Dave was grounded there in his attempt to get home to Los Angeles and to pass the time, wandered down Denmark Street where he found a vintage guitar shop — and a guitar once owned by country/western star Red River caught his eye. The next morning, a flight opened up by way of Nashville and he jumped at the chance to visit Music City. Big Kenny  of Big & Rich  ends up leading the way as Dave takes Nashville.
Watch the trailer:
A limited number of general admission tickets will be made available to the public for the documentary’s premiere. Tickets go on sale this Friday, June 1, at www.belcourt.org . Each ticket includes a limited edition vinyl copy of The Ringmaster General, which is set for release September 4 in the U.S. and September 3 in Europe.
Sticking with his ties to and love of country music, Dave opened three shows for Sugarland  in April. He will open three more shows for the duo in August.
