NASHVILLE – FAME
NASHVILLE’s Hayden Panettiere Sings The Oscar Winning Song FAME. The sixty second version was featured on the Oscars with the full length version available on iTunes. We recorded Hayden singing a stripped down acoustic version of FAME on the day before we were to shoot in LA. I brought on Sanaa Hamri to direct, as we have a long standing working relationship. She had directed several Nashville episodes and knew Hayden, so I knew it was the right fit. There was great chemistry and it was a great blend into the Oscars telecast as well selling quite a few songs on iTunes.
