This page is maintained by Rakefilms, we produced BE HERE TO LOVE ME: A FILM ABOUT TOWNES VAN ZANDT. You can check out more at our website:


As a musician, Townes Van Zandt was legendary recording dozens of albums over a career spanning more than 30 years. Although he never had a hit, his work have been covered with great success by Willie Nelson and Emmylou Harrish and has inspired artists from Bob Dylan to Norah Jones. As a man, a husband, and a father his life was as tragic and as beautiful as the songs he wrote. Townes was an enigma to his family, pinned between a deep longing for home and the nomadic lifestyle that was necessary for his livelihood. Director Margaret Brown's BE HERE TO LOVE ME is an artful, expertly directed portrait of both of these sides of Van Zandt and ultimately serves as an insightful look at the sacrifices, challenges, and consequences faced in pursuit of a dream. Haunting and lyrical, BE HERE TO LOVE ME combines emotional interviews with friends and family with never seen footage of Townes Van Zandt, from rare performance and interview footage to intimate portraits shot in Van Zandts own home throughout the years. It also includes appearances by many famous musicians, including Willie Nelson, Lyle Lovett, Kris Kristofferson, Steve Earle, and Emmylou Harris.
