Crazy is a 2007 independent feature biographical musical/drama motion picture starring Waylon Payne and Ali Larter.

Inspired by the life of Nashvillemarker guitarist Hank Garland, the movie was filmed from January 13 to February 12, 2005, in Los Angeles, Californiamarker.


Crazy is the story of a legendary guitar player who emerged from Nashville in the 1950s. Blessed with incomparable, natural talent, Hank Garland quickly established his reputation as the finest sessions player in Nashville. Artists such as Roy Orbison, Patsy Cline, The Everly Brothers and Elvis Presley all sought Hank’s brilliant play for their recordings. Moving effortlessly from country, to rock-a-billy, to jazz, Hank was also quickly recognized by the likes of Dave Brubeck, Gary Burton, Joe Morello and Joe Benjamin.

The Nashville scene was a unique place in the 50’s – dominated by a small group of executives and musicians who controlled the studios, labels and unions. Hank, in his arrogance and pursuit of musical excellence, often came into conflict with the business, social and racial culture he found both restrictive and frequently frustrating.

Some people say that a near-fatal car accident, which Hank suffered, was a result of tragic response to dreams unfulfilled. Others will say that the subsequent electro-shock therapy which was ordered by his doctors, may have contributed to ending Hank’s playing career at the age of thirty-one. But forty-three years after Hank disappeared from the music scene, his guitar lives on in a countless number of hit records, and one, amazing solo jazz effort, "Jazz Winds from a New Direction", a collection of Jazz standards with as bebop and cool sound. Recorded June 23, 1960. Includes original liner notes by John Hammond (and new liner notes by Richard Lieberson.)Personnel: Hank Garland (guitar); Gary Burton (vibraphone); Joe Benjamin (acoustic bass); Joe Morello (drums).


Crazy won the Best of Fest award at the Real to Reel International Film Festival in 2008.
