I was watching TV yesterday and saw a trailer for the Clint Eastwood film “Trouble With the Curve,” which was shot in Atlanta earlier this year and it features Phillip Phillips‘ “Home.” NBC used the song for the U.S. women’s gymnastics team, propelling the song to No. 1 on iTunes last week.
Eastwood plays an aging Atlanta Braves scout who is struggling to connect with his daughter, played by Amy Adams. Justin Timberlake, John Goodman and Robert Patrick are also part of the film. It hits theaters Sept. 21.
And here’s the “Home” video with Phillips himself:
With music writer Melissa Ruggieri, I’m going to interview Jordin Sparks, who will be in Atlanta tomorrow to promote the upcoming film with Whitney Houston “Sparkle.” Any questions to ask her?
