Unanswered Prayers is becoming a Lifetime movie! I know! How stinkin exciting is THAT?! The news broke earlier this week that the song, which appeared on Garth's second album entitled "No Fences" was becoming a two-hour long film on the network. The song was co-written by Garth and hit #1 back in 1990.
The film will air in November and star Eric Close from CBS's "Without a Trace" and actress Samantha Mathis. The script was written by Deena Goldstone, who also wrote "Identity Theft: The Michelle Brown Story" for the TV network and also has a tie to country music. The part of Michelle Brown was played by Kimberly Williams Paisley--Brad Paisley's wife.
There are sooo many country songs that would make great Lifetime movies! In fact, it isn't the first time it has been done, and we all know how "The Gambler" turned into a series of made-for-TV movies. Reba had a hit with "Is There Life Out There" and a hit with a made for TV movie. She also had a whole TV series based on the song "I'm a Survivor." I say, bring it on! Keep bringing these great songs to life! How about Taylor Swift's "Should Have Said No" or Suglarland's "Stay." The list could go on and on!
