Stephen King, John Mellencamp and T Bone Burnett’s Musical Confirms Dates

Ghost Brothers of Darkland County, a Southern gothic, supernatural musical written by Stephen King with music by John Mellencamp and T Bone Burnett, will come to 20 cities in the U.S. this fall. The run will begin on October 10 in Bloomington, IN and end on November 6 in Grand Rapids, MI, with other stops throughout the Southeast and Midwest. 

The musical has been 13 years in the making and will be performed by an ensemble of 15 actors with a four-piece live band. Ghost Brothers of Darkland County is set in the tiny town of Lake Belle Reve, MS and centers on two sets of brothers, the ghosts of Jack and Andy, dead in an apparent murder/suicide, and their nephews, Frank and Drake, who seem to be headed toward the same fate.

The musical’s soundtrack album will be released on June 4 via Hear Music and the Concord Music Group.

please….there is hardly any difference between EAST tn and most of ky…just as many backwards ass rednecks and meth labs in both places.
and for what it is worth, the only sec towns worse than Knoxville are Starkville and to some degree Baton Rouge….Lexington is lame, but still cleaner and more “progressive” than any of those 3 places, and deff more credible from an academic standpoint, than the 3 schools combined.
