Having watched musicians play outside his father's liquor store as a small child, Steve Azar knew that he would have to leave his Mississippi Delta home someday if he wanted to make it big with his own music. But being in the land where riverboat queens roll certainly helped Azar soak up a lot of Southern culture, which gave him the bona fide roots that many of his contemporaries lack - roots that help define his distinctive style of new country.

Steve Azar & the King's Men
Runtime: 1 hr 13 minHit singer-songwriter Steve Azar endeavors to record his new album Down at the Liquor Store inside the historic Club Ebony in Mississippi's folkloric Delta. The venue's rustic walls fostered the sounds of artists such as Ray Charles, Count Basie, Bobby Bland, Little Milton, and Sam Chatmon, ultimately possessed and championed by the legendary B.B. King. The film chronicles Azar's lifelong passion for music that set him on the path to success in Nashville—and his devotion to the Delta that would finally draw him home to live, record, and inspire the next generation of musicians. Now, Azar and The Kings Men, a team of storied musicians who have accompanied the likes of Elvis Presley and B.B. King himself, evoke and expand upon this sonic tradition, seeking to illustrate a resolute connection between a fabled past and a promising future in the arts.
