For newcomer actor Alan Powell, taking on a singer-songwriter character for The Song, was an easy fit.
Like his character, the up-and-coming Powell actor is better known for his music — as the frontman for the Christian band Anthem Lights.
In the film’s trailer, seen here first on Yahoo Movies, Powell’s character seeks to rise from under the shadow of his country music legend father. Along the way he meets the love of his life, Rose (played by Ali Faulkner, who you may remember from Twilight: Breaking Dawn).
Inspired by Rose, King writes a song that shoots to the top of the charts. The catch is, his rising star causes problems, including a schism with his wife. His marriage starts to crumble as fellow musician Shelby Bale (Caitlin Nicol-Thomas of Nashville) enters the picture.
The double-edged sword of stardom never ceases to cut both ways. Check out The Song this fall to see how it works out for Powell, when the film opens nationwide on September 26th.
