AUDIENCE AWARD WINNER 2007 SOUTH BY SOUTHWEST FILM FESTIVAL

Meet Larry Pierce: a small-town factory worker and family man who happens to be the raunchiest country music singer in America. Since 1993, Larry has quietly released over a dozen dirty country albums at truck stops across the country. Without the time or money to pursue a "legitimate" career in country music, Larry is content to lead an ordinary life and moonlight as a dirty country singer. But when he is forced into early retirement at his factory job of 30 years, Larry faces an uncertain future. That is, until a young band with dirty songs of its own shows up at his door and offers to take Larry onstage.

Dirty Country introduces an ordinary man with an extraordinary gift for dirty music and tells the unlikely story of how his songs were thrust out of obscurity and into the spotlight. The film also profiles several living legends of the raunchy music business, including piano virtuoso Dr. Dirty, seminal funk singer Blowfly, and the original party band, Doug Clark's Hot Nuts. With commentary from leading authors, experts, and social critics, the film poses the question: is America a nation of prudes or are we living in a dirty country?
