“When I first read through the script in my head, it was in the voice of Travis Tritt,” said director Logan Sekulow.
“I grew up listening to him and I’m a big fan. This role needed someone
who could be warm and that the audience could trust. I was thrilled
when I heard that he wanted to do it. As a director, it is great to see
the vision you have play out on film exactly how it did in your head.”
In addition, Tritt has written a song for the movie, titled “That’s What Dreamers Do.”
