When three teenaged brothers and their cousin rebelled against their strict, religious Southern upbringing, Kings of Leon was formed. With a humble backstory that has garnered almost as much attention as their music, Caleb, Nathan, Jared and Matthew Followill have gone on to record six albums, achieve worldwide success and win Grammy Awards. While living in Nashville, Tennessee and working in music publishing, Stephen C. Mitchell signed then-unknown musicians Caleb and Nathan Followill to their initial songwriting deals. His decade-long friendship with Kings of Leon is now reflected in his directorial debut (premiering on Showtime on August 21st), which combines personal home videos, interviews and behind-the-scenes footage in a raw, emotional and intimate way, showcasing the band’s journey from their small-town beginnings to living the rock star dream. For fans of the band, as well as those who may be totally unfamiliar with their music, it is an exploration of family bonds, fame and the work ethic that has gotten these musicians to the top.
